NCES.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.
NCES.Bio.2.1.1: Analyze 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.
NCES.Bio.2.1.2: Analyze the survival and reproductive success of organisms in terms of behavioral, structural, and reproductive adaptations.
NCES.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.
NCES.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).
NCES.Bio.3.1.2: Explain how DNA and RNA code for proteins and determine traits.
NCES.Bio.3.1.3: Explain how mutations in DNA that result from interactions with the environment (i.e. radiation and chemicals) or new combinations in existing genes lead to changes in function and phenotype.
NCES.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).
NCES.Bio.3.4.1: Explain how fossil, biochemical, and anatomical evidence support the theory of evolution.
NCES.Bio.3.4.2: Explain how natural selection influences the changes in species over time.
NCES.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.
NCES.Bio.4.2.1: Analyze photosynthesis and cellular respiration in terms of how energy is stored, released, and transferred within and between these systems.
