...Matthew Rice; Frackson Mumba; Laura Pottmeyer Students’ sound knowledge about osmosis can lead to their understanding of other related biological processes that require the movement of materials across cell membranes, such as photosynthesis, homeostasis, and cellular respiration. However, students...

... that constraints and some guidance need to be provided to students when they design their own lab procedure in order to know what the goal of the activity is and a pathway to achieve that goal. A common way to introduce students to the concept of osmosis is to use dialysis tubing and solutions with varying...
