Lesson 20 Asexual/Sexual Reproduction
Sexual vs. Asexual
In asexual reproduction, only one parent is involved and all of the genes are passed to the offspring. In
sexual reproduction, two parents are involved and the offspring inherit a unique combination
Lesson 14: Cell Respiration steps
What is the reaction that correctly represents the overall reaction of aerobic cellular respiration?
C6H12O6 + O2 = H2O + CO2 + ATP Energy
Scientists group the enzyme-controlled reactions summarized by the equation abo
Lesson : Cell Membane
The Structure and Function of Cell Membranes
Unlike a guard at a gate, cell membranes do not think about what substances are allowed to enter and
exit a cell. Chemical and physical properties determine the movement of substances acro
Evidence for Evolution
The four types of evidence include:
Distribution in time and space
Evidence by example
Keep in mind that not just one type of evidence alone
determines the relationship between organisms.

Born into a free-thinking family
Both of Darwin's grandfathers belonged to the 'Lunar Society': a group of industrialists and Natural Philosophers
Lesson 21 Cell Structure
What is a chromosome? You probably know that there are
chromosomes in the nuclei of your cells, and that they
contain genetic information. You are also familiar with the
X-shaped chromosomes in this image.

Lesson 33: Genetic Engineering
What is genetic engineering?
Genetic engineering is a method used by scientists to study DNA sequences. In genetic engineering,
scientists take DNA from one organism and put it into the cells of another o

Lesson 19: Plant Transportation
The carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen needed to form basic organic matter is acquired from the
atmosphere and soil in the form of carbon dioxide and water. However, to build protein, nitrogen is also
Lesson 28: DNA and RNA
We will begin this lesson by putting DNA into the context of what you have already learned about
chromosomes, genes, alleles and heredity.
What are Genes?
A gene is a length of DNA forming part of a chromosome. In humans there a

Lesson 13: Cell Respiration
Remember that a carbohydrate is a carbon chain that is broken up to make glucose, the main source
of energy in the body.
Lesson 15- Photosynthesis
Nucleus: The nucleus is the most obvious organelle in any eukaryotic cell. It
is enclosed in a double membrane and communicates with the surrounding
cytosol via numerous nuclear pores. Within each nucleus is nuclear
Lesson 16: Photosynthesis Details
Before You Start
In the previous lesson, you found that the chemicals involved in cellular respiration and photosynthesis
were the same. They both involve oxygen, carbon dioxide, glucose, and water. The similarities do no
Lesson 30: DNA Replication
Problem 2 Tutorial: 14N distribution after one generation
In the Meselson-Stahl DNA replication experiment, what percent of the DNA was
composed of one light strand and one heavy strand after one generation of gr
Lesson #22: Cell Cycle and Mitosis
The processes of repair, regeneration, and growth all happen because of the cell cycle, which includes
the processes of growth, synthesis, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
The Cell Cycle
As a multicellular organism grows, repai
a) Eye wash: It is used in the event that a person using harmful chemicals gets it
in their eye, there is a station in which their eyes can be washed. A person
puts their eyes into the correct place and floods their eyes for 15-20 minutes.
