Ms. Caparas’s Biology Syllabus

Ms. Caparas’s

Biology Syllabus

Welcome to Biology! This course is designed to expand on your previous knowledge and experience in science along with your ability to form questions and solve problems. Through activities, labs, projects, and discussions we will explore various topics in biology including cell biology, evolution, genetics, and ecology. This course promises to be not only challenging but also exciting as students are able to investigate biology facilitating their learning process.

CALIFORNIA CONTENT STANDARDS:
INVESTIGATION AND EXPERIMENTATION: Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
CELL BIOLOGY
1. The fundamental life processes of plants and animals depend on a variety of chemical reactions that occur in specialized areas of the organism’s cells.
GENETICS
2. Mutation and sexual reproduction lead to genetic variation in a population.
3. A multicellular organism develops from a single zygote and its phenotype depends on its genotype, which is established at fertilization.
4. Genes are a set of instructions encoded in the DNA sequence of each organism that specify the sequence of amino acids in proteins characteristic of that organism.
5. The genetic composition of cells can altered by incorporation of exogenous DNA into the cells.
ECOLOGY
6. Stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects.
EVOLUTION
7. The frequency of an allele in a gene pool of a population depends on many factors and may be stable or unstable over time.
8. Evolution is the result of genetic changes that occur in constantly changing environments.
PHYSIOLOGY
9. As a result of the coordinated structures and functions of organ systems, the internal environment of the human body remains relatively stable (homeostatic) despite changes in the outside environment.
10. Organisms have a variety of mechanisms to combat disease.

EXPECTED SCHOOLWIDE LEARNING RESULTS:
1. Every student will become a creative and critical thinker who uses available technologies for deeper understanding.

Ms Caparas’s
Chemistry Syllabus

Welcome to Chemistry! This a a two-semester course that emphasizes the major concepts of chemical science (aligned with the California Curriculum Standards), as well as the scientific method, problem solving, group work and laboratory safety.

CALIFORNIA CONTENT STANDARDS:

ATOMIC AND MOLECULAR STRUCTURE
1. The periodic table displays the elements in increasing atomic number and shows how periodicity of the physical and chemical properties of the elements relates to atomic structure.
CHEMICAL BONDS
2. Biological,  chemical, and physical properties of matter result from the ability of atoms to form bonds from electrostatic forces between electrons and protons and between atoms and molecules.
CONSERVATION OF MATTER AND STOICHIOMETRY
3. The conservation of atoms in chemical reactions leads to the principle of conservation of matter and the ability to calculate the mass of products and reactants.
GASES AND THEIR PROPERTIES
4. Their kinetic molecular theory describes the motion of atoms and molecules and explains the properties of gases.
ACIDS AND BASES
5. Acids, bases, and salts are three classes of compounds that form ions in water solutions.
SOLUTIONS
6. Solutions are homogenous mixtures of two or more substances.
CHEMICAL THERMODYNAMICS
7. Energy is exchanged or transformed in all chemical reactions and physical changes of matter.
REACTION RATES
8. Chemical reaction rates depend on factors that influence the frequency of collision of reactant molescules.
CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIUM:
9. Chemical equilibrium is a dynamic process at the molecular level.
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY AND BIOCHEMISTRY
10. The bonding characteristics of carbon allow the formation of many different organic molecules of varied sizes, shapes, and chemical properties and provide the biochemical basis of life.
NUCLEAR PROCESSES
11. Nuclear processes are those in which an atomic nucleus changes, including radioactive decay of naturally occurring and human-made isotopes, nuclear fission, and nuclear fusion.
