describe the relationship between photosynthesis and respiration. 3R
recognize or recall specific terminology (photosynthesis, glucose, chloroplast, energy, matter, respiration, products, reactants). 2K

Genetics

I-can:
explain how mutations located on chromosomes may affect proteins. 3R
describe how the changes in DNA replication cause harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects. 3R
describe the structure of DNA. 2R
recognize or recall specific terminology (genes, DNA, chromosome, mutation, amino acids, protein synthesis, nitrogen bases, adenine, cytosine, thymine, guanine, DNA replication, sugar and phosphate siderail, double helix). 2K
compare and contrast genes, DNA, and chromosomes. 2R
create a model of DNA. 2P
pair nitrogen bases to show DNA replication. 2S

LS3-2: Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.

I-can:
draw and label the phases of the cell cycle (in a body cell). 3S
compare and contrast Meiosis and Mitosis. 3R
create a Punnett square and describe the outcome of the cross. 2P
recognize or recall specific terminology (dominant, recessive, heterozygous, homozygous, purebred, hybrid, allele, genes, DNA, chromosome, asexual reproduction, Mitosis, phases of cell cycle (Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, and Cytokinesis), spindle fibers, sexual reproduction, Meiosis, punnett square, pedigree, inheritance, fertilization, zygote, haploid, diploid, sperm, egg, daughter cells, genotype, phenotype, trait). 2K

MS-LS4: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
LS4-4: Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals' probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment.
I-can:
explain how genetic variation in a population can lead to the formation of a new species. 3R
explain why genetic variation is important in a population. 3R
describe the effects of natural selection. 3R
