Biology Unit 1 Review Guide
(Chapters 1 & 17)
1. Know the difference between science and
technology, and be able to provide
examples of each.
What are some limitations of science?
Science = learning something for
sake of new knowledge (biology,
Biology 17.2 Assignment
A. Arthropod Review
Classify each of the characteristics by writing the letter from the key
that best matches the characteristic described.
P = Phylum characteristic of the arthropods
C = Class characteristic for Crustaceans
The students will learn how to carry out and
write a Lab report.
The format that will be used in this course will
use the following 6 parts:
Chemical / Physical
Properties and Changes
The student will learn the difference
between a chemical change and a physical
change and be able to recognize the
Physical Properties: Are those that can be observed
when a substance
E. C. : are maps made of the different
quantum numbers that locate the energy
levels, orbital type and number of
electrons in a specific atom.
Zig Zag Chart: listed below is used to
figure out the order that the orbitals are
Density: is the amount of mass per unit of
volume that is in matter. (D = m/v).
Density can also be calculated through the
use of a graph.
The density can be found by solving the
slope of the line
100 g = _ Kg
7.375 Km = _ m
.0001 L = _ ml
2,500,000 cm = _m
55,070 Hm = _ mm 5,500 cg = _ g
1,000 g = _Kg
10.7 Kl = _ ml
60g = _ dg
English to Metric conversions
1.) How many Kg are in 195 pounds?
2.) How many liters are
Classification of Matter
The students will learn the 3 main
classifications of matter and how to tell
the difference between them.
All matter can be classified as an element,
compound or mixture.
Elements: are all found on the Periodic
Gasoline Combustion and Emisions
The gasoline powered internal
combustion engine (in cars) takes in air
from outside mixes it with gas and adds
a spark to propel the vehicle.
Simple internal combustion:
Air + gas + Spark.
Only about 20 % of the energy
The students will learn how to convert
within the Metric system and from the
Metric system to the English measuring
Metric to Metric:
When converting within the Metric System, as long
as you know what the prefixes mean
Quantum numbers: Are in all electron
configurations and are used to locate the
specific location of electrons in an atom.
There are four different kinds of quantum
1.)Principle number ( n ): indicates the
energy level that the ele
