Saskatchewan Foundational and Learning Objective
1.1.2: Realize the relationship between the electron structure of atoms and the type of bond which forms.
1.1.5: Discuss a chemical reaction Ä the reactants, products and energy either required or produced.
1.2.7: Recognize the value of proteins by using examples from the human body.
1.3.1: Describe the similarities and differences in the structure of DNA and RNA.
1.3.2: Describe the processes of replication and transcription.
2.1.4: Describe the functions of the organelles found in eukaryotic cells.
2.2.2: Examine the mechanisms of active transport by identifying and explaining the two processes. (Process one involves the expenditure of energy where a carrier molecule takes a substance from one side of a membrane to the other side of the membrane. Process two involves the inpocketing of material by a membrance -- pinocytosis and exocytosis.)
2.2.4: Compare aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
2.2.5: Describe the processes involved in photosynthesis and then compare the process of photosynthesis with respiration.
2.2.6: Examine how the structure of the leaf is adapted for the processes involved in photosynthesis.
2.2.7: Identify how osmosis is related to diffusion and the value of osmosis to living organisms.
2.2.8: Compare the similarities and differences between active and passive transport.
2.2.9: Indicate the importance of the light and dark reactions in the process of photosynthesis.
3.1.3: Describe Mendel's experiments and observations.
3.1.4: Describe the relationship between genotype and phenotype.
3.1.5: Use the concept of the gene to explain Mendel's laws.
3.2.1: Describe how the genetic code is carried on the DNA.
3.2.2: Outline the process of replication.
3.2.4: Describe the process of transcription.
3.2.5: Describe the functions of mRNA, tRNA, amino acids, and ribosomes in protein synthesis.
3.2.6: Describe the causes and effects of both chromosome and gene mutations.
3.4.1: Describe the concepts of the deme and the gene pool.
3.4.2: Consider the Hardy-Weinberg principle.
4.1.1: Review the principles of diffusion and active transport.
4.1.2: Contrast passive transport systems, as in the cnidaria, with active transport systems, such as the human blood circulation system.
4.2.1: Describe the functions of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver in the circulation system.
4.2.5: Discuss respiration by relating the activity to the physical structure like the lungs and blood and the cells fed by the blood.
5.1.1: Describe how individual variations are produced.
5.1.2: Discuss the action of natural selection on individuals, populations, and species.
5.2.2: Examine data from comparative anatomy and comparative embryology.
5.2.6: Examine the effects of migration and mutations on evolutionary change.
5.3.4: Identify both pre-mating and post-mating barriers to recombination and reproduction.
