***Tutoring is every morning 6:30-7:15 by appt only, after school certain days by appt. only and online until 5:00 p.m. I have a tutoring sign in log book to keep a record of your attendance...No credit will be given if the book is not signed or you sit in clas without asking me specific questions.
***To be successful with memorization of concepts-you must review daily up to 1 hour if the situation warrants, and ask questions.Tardiness and class disruptions impair learning for all and will not be tolerated.

The Cell Theory states:

  • All living organisms are composed of cells. They may be unicellular or multicellular.
  • The cell is the basic unit of life.
  • Cells arise from pre-existing cells.

When Hooke viewed a thin cutting of cork he discovered empty spaces contained by walls, and termed them 
pores, or cells. The term cells stuck and Hooke gained credit for discovering the building blocks of all life

In 1838 Matthias Schleiden had stated that plant tissues were composed of cellsSchwann demonstrated the same fact for animal tissues, and in 1839 concluded that all tissues are made up of cells: this laid the foundations for the cell theory. Schwann also worked on fermentation and discovered the enzyme pepsin.


cell wallplant, not animal*outer layer
*rigid, strong, stiff
*made of cellulose
*support (grow tall)
*allows H2O, O2, CO2 to pass into and out of cell
cell membraneboth plant/animal*plant - inside cell wall
*animal - outer layer; cholesterol
*selectively permeable
*controls movement of materials in/out of cell
*barrier between cell and its environment
*maintains homeostasis
nucleusboth plant/animal*large, oval*controls cell activities
nuclear membraneboth plant/animal*surrounds nucleus
*selectively permeable
*Controls movement of materials in/out of nucleus
cytoplasmboth plant/animal*clear, thick, jellylike material and organelles found inside cell membrane*supports /protects cell organelles
reticulum (E.R.)
both plant/animal*network of tubes or membranes*carries materials through cell
ribosomeboth plant/animal*small bodies free or attached to E.R.*produces proteins
mitochondrionboth plant/animal*bean-shaped with inner membranes*breaks down sugar molecules into energy
vacuoleplant - few/large
animal - small
*fluid-filled sacs*store food, water, waste (plants need to store large amounts of food)
lysosomeplant - uncommon
animal - common
*small, round, with a membrane*breaks down larger food molecules into smaller molecules
*digests old cell parts
chloroplastplant, not animal*green, oval usually containing chlorophyll (green pigment)*uses energy from sun to make food for the plant (photosynthesis)
