#15_Organelles & Cell Function
Basic Cell Function:
Many cells in your body act like factories, assembling molecules into various beneficial secretions. The cells that line your mouth, for example, assemble molecules into the slippery mucus that prevents bacteria and other germs from entering your body.

Diagram A represents a cell that produces molecules for the body. Diagram B represents a factory like – a make-believe cell – in which a computer, power plant, and robots are used to represent actual structures in a real cell. By comparing Diagram A with Diagram B, you will learn how the organelles of an actual cell work together to produce molecules for the body.

1. The job of the power plant is to produce energy for the factory. If the mitochondrion has a similar function, what is its job?
2. Which structures in Diagram A are similar to the computer in Diagram B?
3. Which organelles in Diagram A are similar to the robots in Diagram B?
4. If the job of the computer is to control the robots, what do the chromosomes control?
5. If the job of the robots is to make boxes, what do the ribosomes produce?
6. Which organelle in Diagram A is similar to the packaging room in Diagram B?
7. If the job of the packaging room is to wrap the boxes so that they can leave the factory, what is the job of the Golgi body?
8. To reach the packaging room, the boxes travel on the assembly .........................; to reach the Golgi body in the actual cell, the chemicals must travel through the ................................................

Scientific Method
Read the story and answer the questions. Also copy the definition given.

The Scientific Method:

  • State the problem
  • Gathering Information
  • Form a hypothesis
  • Test the Hypothesis with an Experiment
  • Analyzing the Data
  • Drawing Conclusion

State the problem:
A pet owner had his four cats boarded while he travels. The cats seemed healthy when they arrived, but a technician notices that two of the cats start scratching and chewing at their skin. After three days, these same two cats have bare patches of skin with red sores.
1. What is the problem?

Gathering Information:
The technician knows that cat's sometimes change their behavior when moved to a new place, so she watches all four cats for two days. Other than the scratching and chewing by the cats with sores, the behavior of all four cats seems the same. The technician called the owner and found out that he fed the cats the same food as she did.
While observing the cats, the technician also noticed that the cats scratched most after using the litter box. She called the owner and asked what brand of litter he put in the cat's litter box. The owner used a different brand than she did, so she compared the ingredients of the two kinds of litter. The difference was that the owners litter was deodorant free, while the brand she used had a deodorant.
2. What three pieces of information were gathered?

Form a hypothesis:
Based on the information gathered, the next thing the technician does is form a hypothesis.

  • A hypothesis is an explanation that can be tested. (Copy this definition)
3. What hypothesis should the technician form?

Test the Hypothesis with an Experiment:
The technician gets the cats owners permission to test her hypothesis.
4. How how you would test the hypothesis?

  • A control is the standard to which the outcome of a test is compared. (Copy this definition)
5. What “control” could you include in this testing of the hypothesis?

  • A variable is something in an experiment that can change. (Copy this definition)
6. What is the variable in this test?

Analyzing the Data:
The technician observes the cats for one week. During this time she collects data.
7. What data should be collected in this test?

Drawing Conclusion:
The data show that the control cat scratches and and chews more often than the experimental cat. Does. The sores on the skin of the experimental cat begin to heal, but those on the control cat do not.
8. What conclusion can be drawn from this data?

9. Further testing to be more sure of that the conclusion is correct:
How could the control cat be used to support the conclusion?
How could the experimental cat be used to verify the conclusion?

10. Would both of these latter tests be ethical on someone's pet?

Safety Regulation Notes
Summarize and write down the following as notes.

While working in the science laboratory. you will have certain important responsibilities that do not apply to other classrooms. You will be working with materials and apparatus which, if handled carelessly or improperly, have the potential to cause injury or discomfort to someone else as well as yourself.
A science laboratory can be a safe place in which to work if you, the student, are foresighted, alert, and cautious. The following practices will be followed:
1. Report any accident to the teacher immediately, no matter how minor, including reporting any burn, scratch, cut, or corrosive liquid on skin or clothing.
2. Prepare for each laboratory activity by reading all instructions before coming to class. Follow all directions implicitly and intelligently. Make note of any modification in procedure given by the instructor.
3. Any science project or individually planned experiment must be approved by the teacher.
4. Use only those materials and equipment authorized by the instructor.
5. Inform the teacher immediately of any equipment not working properly.
6. Clean up any nonhazardous spill on the floor or work space immediately.
7. Wear appropriate eye protection, as directed by the instructor. whenever you are working in the laboratory. Safety goggles must be worn during hazardous activities involving caustic/corrosive chemicals, heating of liquids, and other activities that may injure the eyes.
8. Splashes and fumes from hazardous chemicals present a special danger to wearers of contact lenses. Therefore, students should preferably wear regular glasses (inside splash-proof goggles, when appropriate) during all class activities or purchase personal splash-proof goggles and wear them whenever exposure to chemicals or chemical fumes is possible.
9. Students with open skin wounds on hands must wear gloves or be excused from the laboratory activity.
10. Never carry hot equipment or dangerous chemicals through a group of students.
11. Check labels and equipment instructions carefully. Be sure correct items are used in the proper manner. •
12. Be aware if the chemicals being used are hazardous. Know where the material safety data sheet (MSDS) is and what it indicates for each of the hazardous chemicals you are using.
13. Never taste anything or touch chemicals with the ' hands. unless specifically instructed to do so.
14. Test for odor of chemicals only by waving your hand above the container and sniffing cautiously from a distance.
15. Eating or drinking in the laboratory or from laboratory equipment is not permitted.
16. Use a mechanical pipette filler (never the mouth) when measuring or transferring small quantities of liquid with a pipette.
17. When heating material in a test tube, do not look into the tube or point it in the direction of any person during the process.
18. Never pour reagents back into bottles, exchange stoppers of bottles, or lay stoppers on the table.
19. When diluting acids, always pour acids into water, never the reverse. Combine the liquids slowly while stirring to distribute heat buildup throughout the mixture.
20. Keep hands away from face, eyes, and clothes while using solutions, specimens, equipment, or materials in the laboratory. Wash hands as necessary and wash thoroughly at the conclusion of the laboratory period.
21. To treat a burn from an acid or alkali, wash the affected area immediately with plenty of running water. If the eye is involved, irrigate it at the eyewash station without interruption for 15 minutes. Report the incident to your instructor immediately.
22. Know the location of the emergency shower, eyewash and face-wash station, fire blanket, fire extinguisher, fire alarm box, and exits.
23. Know the proper fire- and earthquake-drill procedures.
24. Roll long sleeves above the wrist. Lone, hanging necklaces, bulky jewelry, and excessive and bulky clothing should not be worn in the laboratory.
25. Confine long hair during a laboratory activity.
26. Wear shoes that cover the toes, rather than sandals, in the laboratory.
27. Keep work areas clean. Floors and aisles should be kept clear of equipment and materials.
28. Light gas burners only as instructed by the teacher. Be sure no volatile materials (such as alcohol or acetone) are being used nearby.
29. Use a burner with extreme caution. Keep your head and clothing away from the flame and turn it off when not in use.
30. Use a fire blanket (stop, drop, and roll) to extinguish any flame on a person.
31. Dispose of laboratory waste as instructed by the teacher. Use separate, designated containers (not the wastebasket) for the following:
•Matches, litmus paper, wooden splints, toothpicks, and so on
• Broken and waste glass
•Rags, paper towels, or other absorbent materials used in the cleanup of flammable solids or liquids
•Hazardous/toxic liquids and solids
32. Place books, purses, and such items in the designated storage area. Take only laboratory manuals and notebooks into the working area.
33. Students are not permitted in laboratory storage rooms or teachers' workrooms without the approval of the teacher.
34. To cut small-diameter glass tubing, use a file or tubing cutter to make a deep scratch. Wrap the tubing in a paper towel before breaking the glass away from you with your thumbs. Fire polish all ends.
35. When bending glass, allow time for the glass to cool before further handling. Hot and cold glass have the same visual appearance. Determine whether an object is hot by bringing the back of your hand close to the object.
36. Match hole sizes and tubing when inserting glass tubing into a stopper. If necessary, expand the hole first by using an appropriate size cork borer. Lubricate the
stopper hole and glass tubing with water or glycerin too ease insertion, using towels to protect the hand. Carefully twist (never push) glass tubing into stopper holes.
37. Remove all broken glass from the work area or floor as soon as possible. Never handle broken glass with bare hands; use a counter brush and dustpan.
38. Report broken glassware, including thermometers. to the instructor immediately.
39. Operate electrical equipment only in a dry area and with dry hands.
40. When removing an electrical plug from its socket, pull the plug, not the electrical cord.
41. Treat all animals in the science laboratory humanely; that is, with respect and consideration for their care.
42. Always approach laboratory experiences in a serious and courteous manner.
43. Always clean the laboratory area before leaving.
44. Students and teacher wash hands with soap and water before leaving the laboratory area.
