- You are comparing two cells, one that is very small in size, and one that is very large in size. Under which conditions would you expect the larger cell to be more successful? Under which conditions would you expect the small cell to be more successful? Explain your answers.
- What is wrong with the cell membrane structure in the image below? Why is it incorrect? Explain what it should look like, and why it is arranged in that way.
- Task 1: Create a new discussion post on or before Friday at 11:55 p.m. by clicking the ‘**REPLY HERE**’ post and reply with your answers to the Week 1 Critical Thinking Exercise questions. Your response to the exercise questions should be a minimum of 5 sentences. Going over the minimum sentence requirement is acceptable; however, I am not looking for an essay.
Task 2: After you have created your new discussion post, you are required to read and respond to a minimum of 2 of your classmates discussion posts. Each of your responses should be a minimum of 5 sentences. Think of your responses in terms of a contribution to a dialogue, not a writing exercise or a chat room. Elaborate a single idea and keep your post short but concise as if you were holding a conversation with your classmate(s). Incorporate what you have learned from your weekly reading material and from your own real-world experiences.
Because this is a critical thinking exercise, it is important that you do your best to evaluate and assess the discussion without bias or judgment. You are expected to properly cite in APA format, but do not use direct quotations.
Be as thorough as possible when writing your Critical Thinking Exercise topic/posts, and remember, this is an academic assignment, so no “text-talk,” no conversational tone, and ABOVE ALL OTHER THINGS… don’t plagiarize!! Lastly, spell-check and proofread your work! Failure to follow these steps will negatively impact your grade.
The Week 2 Critical Thinking Exercise will use the grading rubric listed in the Grading Rubrics section under the Course Syllabus.
This forum allows each person to start one discussion topic.
