This PowerPoint file is a wonderful presentation about Passive Transport, which is the natural movement of molecules from a high to low concentration without the use of ATP energy. The PowerPoint begins by discussing how a kayaker going with a river’s current is symbolic of passive transport. Next, the various types of passive transport are discussed: diffusion, osmosis, facilitated diffusion. This PowerPoint contains a very nice collection of images and animations to assist with understanding. All pictures used are in the “public domain” so there is no worry of copyright violation. At the end is a quick practice quiz for your students to try if you wish to check for understanding.
I have also included a “fill-in-the-blank” style worksheet to accompany these notes for you to distribute to your students if you wish.
