H.1P.1: Explain how atomic structure is related to the properties of elements and their position in the Periodic Table. Explain how the composition of the nucleus is related to isotopes and radioactivity.
H.1P.2: Describe how different types and strengths of bonds affect the physical and chemical properties of compounds.
H.1L.1: Compare and contrast the four types of organic macromolecules. Explain how they compose the cellular structures of organisms and are involved in critical cellular processes.
H.1L.2: Describe the chemical structure of DNA and its relationship to chromosomes. Explain the role of DNA in protein synthesis.
H.1L.4: Explain how cellular processes and cellular differentiation are regulated both internally and externally in response to the environments in which they exist.
H.2P.1: Explain how chemical reactions result from the making and breaking of bonds in a process that absorbs or releases energy. Explain how the rate of a chemical reaction is affected by temperature, pressure, and concentration.
H.2P.2: Explain how physical and chemical changes demonstrate the law of conservation of mass.
H.2P.4: Apply the laws of motion and gravitation to describe the interaction of forces acting on an object and the resultant motion.
H.2L.1: Explain how energy and chemical elements pass through systems. Describe how chemical elements are combined and recombined in different ways as they cycle through the various levels of organization in biological systems.
H.2L.2: Explain how ecosystems change in response to disturbances and interactions. Analyze the relationships among biotic and abiotic factors in ecosystems.
H.2L.4: Explain how biological evolution is the consequence of the interactions of genetic variation, reproduction and inheritance, natural selection, and time.
H.2E.3: Describe how the universe, galaxies, stars, and planets evolve over time.
