Essential Questions How can scientific thinking be used to answer questions about the world? Why do some organisms survive and others become extinct over time? Enduring Understandings Science is an evolving body of knowledge and a process of understanding the world around us. All living things, including people, are interdependent with one another and with the environment. The natural world is characterized by patterns of change; small details may change but the overall big picture remains constant. Models are used to explain concepts that are abstract and/or not easily observed. Natural selection leads to organisms well suited for survival in particular environments.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
