Jamillah Mitchell Professor. Jenny Harper Introductory to Biology W/Lab-Section 03G BIOL1011k Midterm StudyGuide Unit 1-Introduction to Biology: For this unit, there will be 10 randomized questions. That means that everyone can get completely different questions. However, the information you need to study is the same regardless of the question. Here are the main areas you should focus on: Definition of Life and the properties of Life All groups of living organisms share several key characteristics or functions: order, sensitivity or response to stimuli,reproduction, adaptation, growth and development, regulation, homeostasis, and energy processing. When viewed together, these eight characteristics serve to define life.Hierarchy of Life - how is life organized (from molecular level up to biosphere) organelle, cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organisms, populations, communities, ecosystem, and biosphere.
Taxonomy and Classification System -Kingdom, Phyla, Class, etc.- and where eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells fit into that classification Scientific Method and the process of scientific inquiry Definition, purpose, and properties of an observation
Difference between a hypothesis and a theory Definition and purpose of a control A part of an experiment that does not change during the experiment The use of controls allows you to study one variable or factor at a time.
Definition and purpose of conducting an experiment An experiment is a procedure carried out to support, refute, or validate a hypothesis. Experiments provide insight into cause-and-effect by demonstrating what outcome occurs when a particular factor is manipulated.There will also be 2 random questions take from unit #1 quiz Unit 2-Chemistry of Life: There will be 11 randomized questions for this unit. The main areas to focus on will be:
Parts of an atom- proton, neutron, electron and where they are found in the atomHow electrons are donated and shared between atoms In covalent bonding electrons are shared between atoms rather than donated in order for the atoms of both elements to gain full outer shells. Electrons are always shared in pairs. ... By combining two oxygen atoms with one carbon atom, the atoms can share electrons such that each atom has a full outer shell.
