Questions to answer:

  1. Why is the cell theory signficant (don’t just state the tenets, explain what it means and why it is a theory)?
  2. How does the ratio of a cell’s surface area to volume place upward and downward limits on cell size?

  3. Endoplasmic reticulum (rough and smooth)
  4. Golgi Apparatus
  5. Vessicles
  1. Explain how each of the organelles above functions in the endomembrane system.
