FIRST SEMESTER

(09/27 to 10/08)

Topic: Atomic Structure

Standard: HS-LS1-2, HS-LS2-2, HS-LS2-7 (Atomic Structure)

Objectives (Students will be able to understand that):

  1. Covalent bonds form when two atoms share electrons.
  2. Ionic bonds form when one atom transfers electrons to another atom.  
  3. Hydrogen bonding occurs when hydrogen bonds with a negatively charged atom.
  4. Coefficients tell how many molecules are present and subscripts tell how many atoms of an element are present. If there is no expressed coefficient or subscript, assume it is 1. 
  5. To find the total number of atoms of a specific element in an equation, multiply the coefficient by the subscript. 
  6. Exergonic reactions involve a net release of energy and endergonic reactions involve a net absorption of energy.  
  7. Enzymes are catalysts that accelerate chemical reactions.
  8. Redox reactions are chemical reactions that involve the transfer of electrons between atoms.
  9. In oxidation reactions, a reactant loses 1 or more electrons and becomes positively charged.  
  10. In a reduction reaction, a reactant gains 1 or more electrons and becomes negatively charged.

(09/13 TO 09/24)

Topic: Atomic Structure

Standard: HS-LS1-2, HS-LS2-2, HS-LS2-7 (Atomic Structure)

Objectives (Students will be able to understand that):

  1. Atoms consist of 3 kinds of subatomic particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons. 
  2. The nucleus is the center of an atom and contains the atom’s protons and neutrons. 
  3. Protons are positively charged, neutrons have no charge, and electrons are negatively charged. 
  4. An element’s atomic number is determined by its number of protons. 
  5. An element’s atomic mass is determined by its number of protons + neutrons. 
  6. Electrons spin around an atom’s nucleus in energy levels. 
  7. Atoms have a neutral charge because they contain the same number of protons and electrons. 
  8. The number and arrangement of electrons in an atom determines if it will combine to form compounds.  
  9. Compounds have different physical and chemical properties than the atoms that compose them.

Homework 1:

(08/16 TO 08/27)

Topic: THE UNIFYING THEMES OF BIOLOGY

Standard: HS-LS1-2, HS-LS2-2, HS-LS2-7 (Unifying Themes of Biology)

GOALS:

  1. Join and become familiar with Google Classroom
  2. Explore Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Slides)
  3. Sign out and receive text books
  4. Learn how to upload an assignment to Google Classroom
  5. Student Handbook: Redos
  6. Website link

Objectives (Students will be able to understand that):

  1. Biology is the study of all living things.
  2. There are 6 themes that unify the study of biology.  
  3. The cell is the basic unit of structure and function.
  4. Unicellular organisms are made up of one cell, whereas multicellular organisms are made up of more than one cell. 
  5. Homeostasis is the state of internal stability. 
  6. DNA is a large molecule containing the hereditary material of a cell.  
  7. Unicellular organisms typically produce offspring identical to themselves via asexual reproduction. 
  8. Multicellular organisms typically produce distinct offspring via sexual reproduction. 
  9. Genes are short segments of DNA that carry the instructions for a single trait of an organism.
