the structure, function, and replication of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA); use, limitations, and misuse of genetic information; and exploration of the impact of DNA technologies. Colorado Quality Core Curriculum Standards and Resources, Biology, Standard 5: Students know and understand interrelationships among science, technology, and human activity and how they can affect the world. As students in grades 9-12 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes demonstrating the interrelationships between science and technology (for example, building a bridge, designing a better running shoe); and explaining the use of technology in an occupation.

    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.
