About This Quiz & Worksheet

There are several terms and functions to keep track of when studying bacterial cytoplasm and cell membranes. This quiz/worksheet will help you test your understanding of the vocabulary surrounding these bacterial properties, as well as what they're composed of and how they work.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on the definitions, functions, and properties of:

  • The bacterial cell membrane
  • Cytosol
  • Bacterial cytoplasm
  • Membrane-bound proteins

Skills Practiced

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson on bacterial cytoplasm and cell membrane
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define and identify important terms, such as cystosol and bacterial cell membrane
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding membrane-bound protein function and identify it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding what makes up the cytoplasm of a bacterium

Additional Learning
