NC--Future Ready Occupational Course of Study
Bio.1.1.1: Summarize the structure and function of organelles in eukaryotic cells (including: the nucleus, plasma membrane, cell wall, mitochondria, vacuoles, chloroplasts, and ribosomes) and ways that these organelles interact with each other to perform the function of the cell.
Bio.1.2.2: Analyze how cells grow and reproduce in terms of interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis.
Bio.2.1.1: Compare the flow of energy and cycling of matter (water, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen) through ecosystems relating the significance of each to maintaining the health and sustainability of an ecosystem.
Bio.2.1.2: Analyze the survival and reproductive success of organisms in terms of behavioral, structural, and reproductive adaptations.
Bio.2.1.3: Explain various ways organisms interact with each other (including predation, competition, parasitism, mutualism) and with their environments resulting in stability within ecosystems.
Bio.2.1.4: Explain why ecosystems can be relatively stable over hundreds or thousands of years, even though populations may fluctuate (emphasizing availability of food, availability of shelter, number of predators and disease).
Bio.3.1.2: Explain how DNA and RNA code for proteins and determine traits.
Bio.3.2.2: Predict offspring ratios based on a variety of inheritance patterns (including: dominance, co-dominance, incomplete dominance, multiple alleles, and sex-linked traits).
Bio.3.4.2: Explain how natural selection influences the changes in species over time.
Bio.4.1.2: Summarize the relationship among DNA, proteins and amino acids in carrying out the work of cells and how this is similar in all organisms.
Bio.4.2.1: Analyze photosynthesis and cellular respiration in terms of how energy is stored, released, and transferred within and between these systems.
Bio.4.2.2: Summarize ways that organisms use released energy for maintaining homeostasis (active transport).
