New Brunswick Curriculum
1.3.1: Examine and compare the structure of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
1.3.2: Describe the differences between plant and animal cells.
1.3.3: Describe eukaryotic cellular structures and the ways in which they manage various cell processes. Include: nucleus, nucleolus, nuclear membrane, ribosomes, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, vesicles, chromosomes, lysosomes, microtubules and microfilaments, vacuoles, mitochondria, centrioles, chloroplasts, cell membranes and cell walls.
1.4.1: Describe the structure of mitochondria, and chloroplasts.
1.4.2: Compare and contrast the basic matter and energy transformations associated with the processes of photosynthesis and aerobic respiration.
1.4.3: Demonstrate that photosynthesis and aerobic respiration are complementary processes.
1.4.4: Design and perform experiments to investigate photosynthesis and respiration.
1.4.5: Explain the importance of the processes of photosynthesis and aerobic respiration to human enterprises.
1.5.1: Explain how materials are able to move into and out of cells through a selectively permeable membrane. Include:
1.5.1.a: Fluid mosaic model
1.5.1.b: Passive transport â?? osmosis, diffusion and facilitated diffusion
1.5.1.c: Active transport â?? molecular transport, endo- and exocytosis
1.5.2: Describe the effects of osmosis on cells with and without cell walls.
2.2.4: Analyze and explain the major features of a virus and its reproductive cycle.
2.3.2: Describe the structure and function of a flower, and compare the structure of monocot and dicot seeds.
2.3.6: Students should design and carry out experiments on plant tropisms.
2.5.1: Explain how biodiversity of New Brunswick ecosystems is related to their sustainability.
2.5.2: Compare New Brunswick eco-regions in terms of biodiversity, climate, physical geography, and location.
2.5.3: Analyze the impact of human behaviour, and human population growth on biodiversity and ecosystems.
3.1.1: Explain what is meant by the concept of homeostasis and its critical nature to living things.
3.1.2: Using humans as an example, explore ways that behaviours and systems respond to changes in the external environment.
3.2.1: Identify and describe the structure and function of carbohydrates, protein, lipids and nucleic acids and where they are found in living organisms.
3.2.3: Describe eating and digestive disorders and their effect on the homeostasis of the system and the organism as a whole.
3.3.1: Describe the structures, purpose and functioning of the digestive system.
3.3.2: Identify the major glands of digestion, their secretions and their role in the digestive process.
3.4.1: Explain the function of the human circulatory and respiratory systems and how they interact.
3.4.2: Trace the flow of blood through the heart, describe the pulmonary and systemic pathways, and follow the flow through the complete cycle.
3.4.7: Describe disorders linked to the circulatory system and/or the respiratory system and their effect on the homeostasis of the system and the organism as a whole.
