Cell Communication and Apoptosis is professionally created, visually stimulating PowerPoint presentation/PDF that will not just save teachers lots of valuable lesson preparation time but also help students to understand this important but often complex topic in biology. Suitable for students in Years 10 – 12, Cell Communication and Apoptosis can easily be used as both an introduction to a new unit, or as revision.
Cell Communication and Apoptosis covers the following:
types of chemical signalling molecules, such as hormones, cytokines, neurotransmitters and pheromones
the three steps involved in cellular communication: reception, transduction and response
differences between hydrophilic and hydrophobic signalling molecules and how this affects the way they operate
the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death)
how apoptosis differs from necrosis
distinction between the mitochondrial and death receptor pathways of apoptosis
consequences of malfunctions in apoptosis
The content in Cell Communication and Apoptosis is explained clearly and includes good detail (without being overwhelming). It also uses simple language that is generally easier to understand than the average textbook, making it accessible to as many of your students as possible. There are lots of colourful, easy-to-follow diagrams to assist the visual learner and facilitate good class discussion.
I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
