Biology Quarter 2


Chapter 8: Photosynthesis

Quarter: 2nd

NGSS:

LS1.C Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

 

     1 The process of photosynthesis converts light energy to stored chemical energy by converting carbon

        dioxide plus water into sugars plus released oxygen.

 

     3 As matter and energy flow through different organizational levels of living systems, chemical

        elements are recombined in different ways to form different products.

 

LS2.B: Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems

 

     1 Photosynthesis and cellular respiration (including anaerobic processes) provide most of the energy

        for life processes.

Possible Sections Covered:

     • 8-1 Energy and Life

     • 8-2 Photosynthesis:  An Overview

     • 8-3 The Reactions of Photosynthesis

Possible Homework:

     Notes to use on Quiz:  8-1, 8-2, 8-3

     Section Reviews: 8-1, 8-2, 8-3

     Worksheets:  Light Dependent Problems, Light Independent Problems

Chapter 9: Cellular Respiration

Quarter: 2nd

NGSS:

LS1.C Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

 

     3 As matter and energy flow through different organizational levels of living systems, chemical

        elements are recombined in different ways to form different products.

 

     4 As a result of these chemical reactions, energy is transferred from one system of interacting

        molecules to another. Cellular respiration is a chemical process in which the bonds of food

        molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and new compounds are formed that can transport

        energy to muscles. Cellular respiration also releases the energy needed to maintain body

        temperature despite ongoing energy transfer to the surrounding environment.

 

LS2.B: Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems

 

     1 Photosynthesis and cellular respiration (including anaerobic processes) provide most of the energy

        for life processes.

Test - Summative


Chapter 10: Cell Growth and Division

Quarter: 2nd

NGSS:

LS1.B Growth and Development of Organisms

 

     1 In multicellular organisms individual cells grow and then divide via a process called mitosis, thereby

        allowing the organism to grow. The organism begins as a single cell (fertilized egg) that divides

        successively to produce many cells, with each parent cell passing identical genetic material (two

        variants of each chromosome pair) to both daughter cells. Cellular division and differentiation

        produce and maintain a complex organism, composed of systems of tissues and organs that work

        together to meet the needs of the whole organism.

Possible Sections Covered:

     • 10-1 Cell Growth

     • 10-2 Cell Division

     • 10-3 Regulating the Cell Cycle

Possible Homework:

     Notes to use on Quiz:  10-1, 10-2, 10-3

     Section Reviews: 10-1, 10-2, 10-3
