This subject is designed to enhance the understanding of the principles and concepts in the study of biology, particularly heredity and variation, and the diversity of living organisms, their structure, function, and evolution.

Curriculum Information

K to 12
Grade 11, Grade 12
Organism and Biology Genetics Evolution and Origin of Biodiversity Systematics Based on Evolutionary Relationships
Compare and contrast the following processes in plants and animals:reproduction, development, nutrition, gas exchange, transport/circulation, regulation of body fluids, chemical and nervous control, immune systems, and sensory and motor mechanisms Explain how some organisms maintain steady internal conditions that possess various structures and processes Describe examples of homeostasis (e.g., temperature regulation, osmotic balance and glucose levels) and the major features of feedback loops that produce such homeostasis Predict genotypes and phenotypes of parents and offspring using the laws of inheritance Explain sex linkage and recombination Describe modifications to mendel’s classic ratios (gene interaction) Illustrate the molecular structure of dna,rna, and proteins Diagram the steps in dna replication and proteinsynthesis Outline the processes involved in genetic engineering Discuss the applications of recombinant dna Explain the mechanisms that produce change in populations from generation to generation (e.g.,
artificial selection, natural selection, genetic drift, mutation, recombination) Describe general features of the history of life on earth, including generally accepted dates and sequence of the geologic time scale and characteristics of major groups of organisms present during these time periods Show patterns of descent with modification from common ancestors to produce the organismal diversity observed today Trace the development of evolutionary thought Explain evidences of evolution (e.g., biogeography, fossil record, dna/protein sequences, homology, and embryology) Infer evolutionary relationships among organisms using the evidence of evolution Explain how the structural and developmental characteristics and relatedness of dna sequences are used in classifying living things Identify the unique/distinctive characteristics of a specific taxon relative to other taxa Describe species diversity and cladistics, including the types of evidence and procedures that can be used to establish evolutionary relationships
