BIOLOGY – DISTRICT MIDTERM STUDY GUIDE 09-10 The Biology midterms are cumulative exams that encompass all of the concepts learned since September. Midterm will consist of 80 multiple choice questions. The midterm and final exams combined are equivalent to 1/5 of your final grade for the course. ..they are significant! Be sure to study! How to study : c To be a successful as possible for this exam – you should be studying well in advance of the exam (several hours total). c Review previous class notes and handouts c Review previous terminology learned in class and in your text (flash cards work well) c Review previous tests (arrange time with your teacher) c Review diagrams in your text (can you talk about what is being depicted in these diagrams?) c Review end of chapter/section review questions in your text c Compare and contrast information whenever possible…e.g., eukaryotic/prokaryotic cells, plant/animal cells, active and passive transport, photosynthesis /cellular respiration, aerobic/anaerobic respiration, food chain/food web, autotroph/heterotroph. Topics to study: Lab safety Parts of a microscope Scientific method Characteristics of living things Biological levels of organization Taxonomy and classification Ecology and biomes Ecological relationships (e.g., competition, symbiosis) Trophic levels and food chains/food webs Succession Human impact on the environment Biogeochemical cycles Parts of an atom Types of bonds Properties of water pH Properties of macromolecules Enzyme characteristics Parts of a cell Cell Theory Prokaryote vs. Eukaryote Cellular transport (active and passive) Energy, ATP, and laws of thermodynamics Cellular respiration Photosynthesis and cycling of materials Bacteria and viruses
