Inquiries in Science®: Examining Cellular Transport Kit

Item # 251022 Exclusive

Grades 9–12. Students explore the processes of osmosis and diffusion using a semipermeable model of the cell membrane. They examine how concentration, molecular size, surface area, and volume relationships affect these processes. Students further their learning by determining the concentration of unknown salt solution. Materials are sufficient for 10 groups.

  • Study diffusion and osmosis across a semipermeable membrane
  • Explore hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic solutions
  • Experiment to learn how concentration and molecular size affect osmosis and diffusion
  • Use agar cubes to examine surface area and volume relationships

Grades 9–12. Students explore the processes of osmosis and diffusion using a semipermeable model of the cell membrane. They examine how concentration, molecular size, surface area, and volume relationships affect these processes. Students will learn to differentiate between hypertonic, hypotonic, and isotonic solution and further their learning by determining the concentration of unknown salt solution. Focuses on the NGSS crosscutting concepts of Stability and Change, and Scale, Proportion, and Quantity. Materials are sufficient for 10 groups. Receive a free digital Teacher’s Manual and Student Guide with kit purchase.

Inquiries in Science Series

Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.


Improve Student Achievement

Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

  • Consider a real-world question or problem
  • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
  • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
  • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).
