The Case of the Sliced Up Cell
This module is not exactly about math. Instead it's about "visualization," specifically, what a 3-dimensional cellular structure looks like when you chop it up into 2-dimensional slices.
In your lab section, you'll get a chance to look at some actual sliced-and-diced cells. Here, we're just going to use basic 3-dimensional shapes and look at what happens when you reduce them to 2 dimensions. Some of those shapes will be similar to cellular organelles, and others will be... not so similar.
