    • All cells come from pre-existing cells
    • Cell theory
  22. 22. True or false:
    • Each cell perform a specific function for each tissue or organ?
    • True
  23. 23. True or false:
    • As cells mature the do NOT shape and contents DON'T change
    • False 
  24. 24. True or false:
    • As cells become specialized they may contain organelles that are NOT common to all cells. 
    • True
  25. 25. True or false:
    • Design and shape of a cell is NOT dictated by its function and the conditions under which it works.
    • False

    • Multicellular organisms exhibit greater cellular specialization, such as red blood cells, nerve cells, and gland cells.
    • True
  27. 27. What are examples of organelles that are NOT common to all cells?
    Plastids, cell wall, vacuole, and centriole
  28. 28. Movement of substances across the plasma membrane without the use of the cell's energy (with the concentration gradient)
    Passive transport 
  29. 29. Movement of substances across the plasma membrane from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration
