About This Chapter
FTCE Biology: Plant Cells - Chapter Summary
Our lessons on plant cells, with information on their structure and function, can help you prepare for the FTCE Biology exam. The topics offered in these videos should equip you to:
- Discuss the chloroplast structure, including chlorophyll, and state the role of each part
- Relate the purpose of the cell wall and central vacuole
- Describe the process of photosynthesis
The videos are brief, about 5-10 minutes each, and can be watched from any location with your mobile device, making these lessons a convenient study tool for the exam. Being able to study at your own pace means you'll have ample time to get the knowledge you'll need for the test.
Objectives of the FTCE Biology: Plant Cells Chapter
Anyone who wants certification to teach biology for grades 6-12 in Florida must pass the FTCE Biology test. Questions on plant cells are in the section on knowledge of the structural and functional diversity of protists, fungi, and plants, which comprises 8% of the 120-question test.
All questions on the FTCE Biology exam are multiple-choice, similar to the questions in the quizzes at the end of each of our video lessons. These quizzes let you see areas where you may need more study and also give you practice taking this type of computer-based multiple-choice test.
1. Chloroplast Structure: Chlorophyll, Stroma, Thylakoid, and Grana
In this lesson, we'll explore the parts of the chloroplast, such as the thylakoids and stroma, that make a chloroplast the perfect place for conducting photosynthesis in plant cells.
2. Plant Cell Structures: The Cell Wall and Central Vacuole
In this lesson, we'll talk about some of the things that make plant cells so different from our cells. In addition to being mean, green photosynthesizing machines, plant cells have cell walls and central vacuoles to make them unique!
