College- and Career-Readiness Standards
FB.2: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the structure and interactions of matter and how the organization of matter supports living organisms.
FB.2.1: Develop and use simple atomic models to describe the components of elements (e.g., relative position, charges of protons, neutrons, and electrons).
FB.2.3: Relate chemical reactivity to an element’s position on the periodic table. Use this information to determine what type of bond will form between elements (ionic, covalent, hydrogen).
FB.3: Students will demonstrate an understanding of how the structure of living organisms supports the essential functions of life.
FB.3.2: Use models to investigate and explain structures within living cells that support life (e.g., cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplasts, lysosomes, Golgi, vacuoles, ER, ribosomes, chromosomes, centrioles, cytoskeleton, nucleolus, nuclear membrane).
FB.3.3: Compare and contrast active and passive cellular transport. Analyze the movement of water across a cell membrane in hypotonic, isotonic, and hypertonic solutions.
FB.3.4: Analyze the relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration and explain that relationship in terms of the need for all living things to acquire energy from their environment.
FB.4: Students will demonstrate an understanding of how genetic information is transferred from parent to offspring.
FB.4.1: Compare and contrast the basic structure and function of nucleic acids (e.g., DNA, RNA).
FB.4.3: Use models (e.g., Punnett squares) and mathematical reasoning to describe and predict patterns of inheritance of single genetic traits from parents to offspring (e.g., dominant, and recessive traits, incomplete dominance, codominance, multiple alleles, sex- linkage).
FB.5: Students will demonstrate an understanding of Earth’s fossil record and its indication of the diversity of life over time.
FB.5.2: Analyze and interpret data to support claims that different types of fossils provide evidence of the diversity of life that has existed on Earth and of the relationships between past and existing life on Earth.
FB.6: Students will understand the interdependence of living organisms and their environment.
FB.6.1: Compare and contrast biotic and abiotic factors.
FB.6.2: Use models to analyze the cycling of matter in an ecosystem (e.g., water, carbon dioxide/oxygen, nitrogen).
FB.6.4: Develop and use models to discuss the climate, flora, and fauna of the terrestrial and aquatic biomes of the world.
FB.6.5: Use models to analyze the flow of energy through food chains, webs, and pyramids.
