21st Century Science
SC.O.BII.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.BII.2.1: correlate functional groups to unique properties of organic molecules to biochemical pathways.
SC.O.BII.2.2: describe the transfer of energy during condensation and hydrolysis reactions of organic molecules (e.g., ATP, enzyme substrate and active site).
SC.O.BII.2.3: summarize the electrochemical gradients in various cells and their corresponding environments.
SC.O.BII.2.5: examine the flow of energy through specific molecules in light dependent and light independent photosynthesis reactions, glycolysis, Kreb?s cycle, EPS, and fermentation.
SC.O.BII.2.6: interpret important research leading to the current knowledge of molecular genetics (e.g., Griffith, Avery, Hershey & Chase, Chargaff, Franklin & Wilkins and Waston & Crick).
SC.O.BII.2.9: analyze the process of DNA replication including DNA polymerase, semi-conservative replication and base-pairing.
SC.O.BII.2.11: demonstrate the role of DNA in determining phenotype and illustrate ways of controlling and regulating expression and function of genes.
SC.O.BII.2.12: distinguish between chromosomal and gene mutations and their potential effects.
SC.O.BII.2.13: analyze a karyotype to determine chromosomal abnormalities.
SC.O.BII.2.14: predict phenotypic ratios of crosses involving pleiotropy, epistasis, multiple alleles and polygenic inheritance.
SC.O.BII.2.16: analyze the criteria for classifications of protists (e.g., motility, cellular structures, reproduction, energy sources).
SC.O.BII.2.17: survey the fungi kingdom (e.g., characteristics, reproduction, relationship to humans and the ecosystem).
SC.O.BII.2.18: compare and contrast members of the plant kingdom in terms of their reproductive systems.
SC.O.BII.2.21: examine types of innate and learned animal behaviors (e.g., competitive, reproductive, social, cyclic, and communication).
