3.4 The organ of Corti and hair cells
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
6.5 Summary of Section 6

Students learn why and how motion occurs and what governs changes in motion, as described by Newton's three laws of motion. They gain hands-on experience with the concepts of forces, changes in motion, and action and reaction. In an associated literacy activity, students design a behavioral survey and learn basic protocol for primary research, survey design and report writing.
Organelle Isolation and Marker Enzyme Assay
Cells contain many specialized structures known as organelles which perform a variety of specific functions. To obtain precise information about the structure and functions of subcellular organelles, it is imperative to isolate them free from contaminating organelles. Marker enzymes are known to be localized exclusively in specific organelles and are used to monitor the separation of these organelles. In this exercise the homogenate of Dictyostelium discoideum will be fractionated by differentia
