Description

DVD is broken down into over 30 learning modules.

Unit 1: The Cell - Unit of Life: Includes the Discovery of Cells; Cell Structures; DNA Directs Cell Activities; Electron Microscopes; Chemistry of Life.
This program shows the kinds of cells and emphasizes the fact that all cells have a common organization and how all cells carry out similar biochemical processes.

Unit 2: The Outer Envelope: Includes Membrane Structure; Membrane Behavior and Cell Walls; Osmosis; Transport Proteins; Endocytosis.
Here students become acquainted with the properties of the plasma membrane, how it governs the kinds of molecules that go in and out of cells, and how cells feed by engulfing (phagocytosis) and drink in fluids by pinocytosis.

Unit 3: How Cells Obtain Energy: Includes Cellular Respiration; ATP, the Energy Carrier; Mitochondria; Photosynthesis; Chrloroplasts, the Light Reactions.
This program illustrates the mechanisms of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. It introduces ATP, the universal energy carrier molecules that supplies energy hungry reactions, and shows the structure and function of Chloroplasts and Mitochondria, energy transforming organelles.

Unit 4: How Cells are Controlled: Includes Enzymes, Life's Catalysts; Protein Structure; How Enzymes and Other Proteins are Made; Turning on Bacterial Genes.
Illustrations show how genetic instructions carried on DNA are transcribed into RNA, leading to the production of specific enzymes that control the thousands of biochemical processes going on in living cells.

Unit 5: How Cells Reproduce: Includes DNA Structure; DNA Replication; Mutation and DNA Repair; Mitosis.
This program shows how DNA replicates, how copy errors occur and are fixed by repair enzymes, how DNA is compressed into chromosomes making possible mitosis and cell division.
