Chapter 28 - The Digestive and Urinary Systems
Read What's the Point p. 557. There is a very important big-picture idea here.
Feces are undigested food that have gone through the digestive tube but have, in fact,
never enter the body.

Chapter 26-the Skeletal and Muscular Systems
Muscles Interact with the Skeleton
Most animals movements require interaction between the muscular and _ system
The muscular system provides motion. Muscle cells contract when stimulated by
the nervous system.
Chapter 3: Cells
All Organisms are Composed of cells
A cell is the smallest unit of life that can function independently.
Cell Theory: Formulated by Schleiden and Schwann who used their observations
(under microscopes) to develop 3 principals of cells.
DNA Structure and Gene Function
What is DNA?
DNA stores the information that the cell needs to produce proteins.
Chromosomes (how many in humans? 46 or 23 pairs.)
Genessequences of DNA
Many scientists collaborated in the discovery of it
The Circulatory and Respiratory System
Movie: The binding sites are blocked until calcium comes.
Blood has diverse functions
Blood is the fluid of the circulatory system. It carries many substances, including
dissolved respiratory gases, throug
Chapter 8: DNA Replication and Cell Division
Mitosis is used for cell division.
Cells Divide, and Cells Die:
Your cells are rapidly dying and being replaced
Cell division produced a continuous supply of replacement cells.
Two Types of Cell Division:
Regulating Temperature, Nutrients, and Body Fluids
Body Temperature Homeostasis
To stay alive they must balance heat
Chapter 4: The energy of Life (8 questions)
All Cells Capture and Use Energy:
But what is energy? Energy is the ability to do workto move matter. (matter
anything that has mass and takes up space)
Many bikers cells are extracting energy from food and usin
How Cells Release Energy
Cells Use Energy in Food to make ATP
All plants and animals, as well as many microbes, use food (glucose) and oxygen gas
to produce ATP, an energy carrier used to power cell activity.
ATP powers nearly every activity th
