21st Century Science
SC.O.B.2: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories, and models as delineated in the objectives; demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology and the earth and space sciences. apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.O.B.2.2: relate the structure of cellular organelles to their functions and interactions in eukaryotic cells.
SC.O.B.2.3: analyze the chemistry and fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane as it relates to import and export of molecules necessary for life including osmosis, diffusion, active and passive transport and dialysis.
SC.O.B.2.4: compare and contrast cell types (e.g., prokaryotic/eukaryotic, plant/animal, nerve/muscle, archaea/bacteria).
SC.O.B.2.5: analyze the flow of energy through cellular processes such as photosynthesis, cellular respiration and fermentation.
SC.O.B.2.6: outline mechanisms of homeostasis in living systems (negative and positive feedback).
SC.O.B.2.7: analyze meiosis and the cell cycle and relate the processes to the number of chromosomes and production of gametes and somatic cells.
SC.O.B.2.8: predict phenotypic ratios by applying Mendel?s Laws of Genetics (e.g., complete and incomplete dominance, codominance, sex-linked, crossing over).
SC.O.B.2.9: explore the discovery of DNA and examine the molecular structure of the double helix.
SC.O.B.2.10: distinguish the structure and function of messenger, transfer and ribosomal RNA in the process of transcription and translation.
SC.O.B.2.12: evaluate the evidence for natural selection including speciation, fossil record evidence, molecular similarities and homologous structures.
SC.O.B.2.13: evaluate the influence of the historical social context on the development of evolutionary theory.
SC.O.B.2.15: interpret the placement of viruses in the current classification systems.
SC.O.B.2.16: incorporate the structure and function of individual body systems to the overall functioning of the organism.
SC.O.B.2.17: assess responses of organisms to internal and environmental stimuli.
SC.O.B.2.18: evaluate environmental factors that affect succession, populations and communities.
SC.O.B.2.19: propose ecosystem models that incorporate interactions of biotic and abiotic environmental variables (e.g., biogeochemical cycles).
SC.O.B.2.20: diagram changes in energy as it flows through an ecosystem to illustrate conservation of energy (e.g., energy pyramid, food web, food chain).
SC.O.B.2.21: characterize interrelationships of organisms within an ecosystem (e.g., symbiosis, competition, predation, mutualism, parasitism, commensalism).
SC.O.B.2.22: analyze graphs, GIS data and traditional maps reflecting changes in population to predict limiting factors in ecosystems as they determine carrying capacity.
