DE.2.Materials and Their Properties

Materials and Their Properties
2.1. Properties and Structure of Materials
Enduring Understanding: The structures of materials determine their properties.
2.1.A. All matter is composed of minute particles called atoms. Most of the mass of an atom is concentrated in the nucleus. In the nucleus, there are neutrons with no electrical charge and positively charged protons. Negatively charged electrons surround the nucleus and overall, the atom is electrically neutral.

Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Rotational Motion/Universal Gravitation
 
3.2.G. Electric forces between charged objects are attractive or repulsive. The electric forces between electrons and protons are attractive, determine the structure of atoms, and are involved in all chemical reactions.

3.3. Energy Interacting With Materials; the Transformation and Conservation of Energy
Enduring Understanding: Energy readily transforms from one form to another, but these transformations are not always reversible. The details of these transformations depend upon the initial form of the energy and the properties of the materials involved. Energy may transfer into or out of a system and it may change forms, but the total energy cannot change.
3.3.B. Most of the changes that occur in the universe involve the transformation of energy from one form to another. Almost all of these energy transformations lead to the production of some heat energy, whether or not heat energy is the desired output of the transformation process. (Level: Essential)

3.3.C. Waves (e.g., sound and seismic waves, waves in water, and electromagnetic waves) carry energy that can have important consequences when transferred to objects or substances. (Level: Essential)
Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Vibrations and Waves
 
3.3.D. When waves interact with materials, the energy they transfer often leads to the formation of other forms of energy. These interactions, which depend upon the nature of the material and the wavelength of the waves, can be used to create practical devices (e.g., sonar and ultra sound imaging, solar cells, remote control units, and communication devices). (Level: Important)

7.1.C. Mutations in DNA of organisms normally occur spontaneously at low rates, but can occur at higher rates (i.e., exposure to pathogens, radiation and some chemicals). Most mutations have no effect on the organism, but some may be beneficial or harmful depending on the environment. (Level: Essential)
Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Nucleic acids and protein synthesis
 
7.1.D. Only random mutations in gametes can create the variation that is inherited by an organism's offspring. Somatic mutations are not inherited, but may lead to cell death, uncontrolled cell growth, or cancer. (Level: Important)
Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Nucleic acids and protein synthesis
 
7.1.E. During the cell cycle, DNA of the parent cell replicates and the cell divides into two cells that are identical to the parent. This process is used for growth and repair of body tissues and for asexual reproduction. (Level: Essential)

Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Cell Reproduction
 
7.1.F. Meiosis is the production of sex cells (gametes). The production and release of these gametes is controlled by hormones. In meiosis, the number of chromosomes is reduced by one-half and chromosomes may randomly exchange homologous parts to create new chromosomes with combinations not necessarily found in the parent cell. This may increase variation within the species. (Level: Essential)

Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Cell Reproduction
 
7.1.I. Embryological development in plants and animals involves a series of orderly changes in which cells divide and differentiate. Development is controlled by genes whose expression is influenced by internal factors (i.e., hormones) and may also be influenced by environmental factors (i.e., nutrition, alcohol, radiation, drugs, and pathogens). Alteration in this balance may interfere with normal growth and development. (Level: Compact)

7.2. Diversity and Evolution
Enduring Understanding: The diversity and changing of life forms over many generations is the result of natural selection, in which organisms with advantageous traits survive, reproduce, and pass those traits to offspring.
7.2.C. The process of natural selection occurs when some heritable variations that arise from random mutation and recombination give individuals within a species some survival advantages over others. These offspring with advantageous adaptations are more likely to survive and reproduce, thus increasing the proportion of individuals within a population with advantageous characteristics.

7.2.E. Evolution does not proceed at the same rate in all populations; nor does it progress in a linear or set direction. Environmental changes have a strong influence on the evolutionary process. Other factors that influence evolution include: sexual selection, mutation, genetic drift, and genetic modification. (Level: Important)

7.3. Technology Applications
Enduring Understanding: The development of technology has allowed us to apply our knowledge of genetics, reproduction, development and evolution to meet human needs and wants.
7.3.C. DNA is analyzed to determine evolutionary relationships, study populations, identify individuals, and diagnose genetic disorders. (Level: Important)

Ecology
8.1. Interactions within the Environment
Enduring Understanding: Organisms and their environments are interconnected. Changes in one part of the system will affect other parts of the system.
8.1.B. Organisms both cooperate and compete in ecosystems. The interrelationships and interdependencies of these organisms may generate complex ecosystems that are stable over long periods of time and tend to have cyclic fluctuations around an equilibrium. (Level: Essential)

8.1.E. The carrying capacity for a specific population in an ecosystem depends on the resources available. Given adequate biotic and abiotic resources and no disease or predators, populations increase at rapid rates. Resources, (limiting factors), predation and climate, limit the growth of populations in specific niches in an ecosystem. (Level: Important)

8.2. Energy Flow and Material Cycles in the Environment
Enduring Understandings: Matter needed to sustain life is continually recycled among and between organisms and the environment. Energy from the Sun flows irreversibly through ecosystems and is conserved as organisms use and transform it.
8.2.A. The Law of Conservation of Matter applies to ecosystems. Matter needed to sustain life in ecosystems is continually recycled (e.g., carbon cycle, water cycle, nitrogen cycle, mineral cycles) among organisms and between organisms and the environment. (Level: Essential)

8.2.C. At each level of a food pyramid some energy is stored, but much is dissipated as heat. Consequently the number of trophic levels is finite, and the number of individuals in a population that feed at higher levels is limited. (Level: Important)
