Life processes

Upon completion of this lesson, students must be able to:

  • State the function and importance of protoplasm.
  • Describe transport system of cells in unicellular and multicellular organisms.
  • Describe human heart and blood vessels .
  • Differentiate between sexual and asexual reproduction.

Notes

Heart

The heart is an important organ in our body. It is made up of cardiac muscles. The heart pumps blood from the heart to the different part of the body. The heart supplies oxygenated blood to the cells through blood vessels. The heart also helps to collect deoxygenated blood from different cells, send it to lungs for purification and then transport again to the cells. This note provides information about heart and its structure.

Plasma is a yellowish transparent liquid. The note of Blood provides information about the function of blood, its structure, blood cell with an example.
