Biology Competency Test Review REVIEW OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION;

Biology Competency Test Review REVIEW OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION; STUDENT SHOULD REFERRED TO NOTES FOR MORE THOROUGH INFORMATION. Science (inquiry) A SEARCH FOR EVIDENCE IN ORDER TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS Observation, identification, description, and explanation of natural phenomena. SCIENCE Observable facts or events in the world around us. NATURAL PHENOMENA Since multiple possible solutions Observations ( using 5 senses-sight, touch, smell, sound &taste)

Collect data Ask questions Investigate Choose solution Research information from many sources Eliminate solutions that use data that cannot be verified or supported by evidence

Recognize data that is biased. Experimental Design/Scientific Method SCIENTIFIC METHOD steps in logically solving problems;may begin with clearly stating problem you are trying to solve. Once establish question-you can make "educated prediction"HYPOTHESIS. Established through reasoning Inductive reasoning-made based on observations (every time throw ball up, come down::every time throw ball up it will come down) Deductive reasoning-general truths (Newton's law of gravity, if

throws up up it it will come down) Process of testing-EXPERIMENTAL DESiGN Steps of the Scientific Method Observation- see or notice something no one else has Problem- identify the problem or ask a question (what is it you need to find out? Research the problem-check books, scientific papers, etc. (what is already know? Hypothesis- tentative explanation that can be formally tested. States how the independent variable (what testing) will affect

dependent variable (what you are measuring). Independent (manipulated variable) -the factor changed (variable testing) Dependent variable (responding variable)- variable measured Steps of the Scientific Method Experimental Design List procedures and material Identify experimental CONTROLS (unchanged factors)

Groups (who?) Experimental group-getting the variable tested Control group-group not getting the variable testing (comparison) Data-observe and record results with charts, lists,graphs, etc. Quantitative (numerical) verses Qualitative (observations) (Graph data- visual comparison between independent and dependent variables.

X axis-independent variable, Y-axis- dependent variable;title and labels Line(show how dependent responds by independent), bar (comparison), and pie(100%) Steps of the Scientific Method Analyze-predict trends and see if data supports hypothesis. CONCLUSION-based on data; describe how independent variable affected dependent variable Did you data support hypothesis

Report results Notes Valid results use multiple subjects and test trials Practice safety List of materials must include everything you need to complete experiment. Procedure must include every step Make table to organize and record data.

Use mathematics to interpret data and graph the results of data Math for science. Why are we integrating subjects ? Metric conversions Based on power of 10s Uses prefixes and symbols Same all over the world

1cc=1ml=1cm3 SI Measurements Length-distance from one point to another Mass-Amount of matter Weight-measurement of gravitational force Volume-amount of space occupied by an object. Graduated cylinder-measures volume of liquid

Brown hair, tall, etc

Punnett Square-mathematical chart used to predict genetic crosses Phenotypic ratio for heterozygous x heterozygous is 9:3:3:1 Special Genetics Incomplete Dominance-intermediate blend Codominance - Both parental phenotypes show up. Sex linked - carried on sex chromosomes Multiple Allelism - traits with 3+ alleles (eg. blood type)

Pedigree charts-used to interpret patterns of inheritance within a family Mutation-change that occur in gene or chromosome Can be negative, positive or no effect. Change genotype and could alter phenotype form expected Internal causes-e.g mistakes during meiosis when crossing over External causes-UV light, X-Rays, drugs, alcohol etc.

Biotechnology/Alteration of DNA Biotechnology-used to describe field of science that specializes in changing the base sequence on DNA to change or improve traits in an organism. Genetic Engineering-changed the gene to produce better results (eg. Crops) Recombinant DNA- recombines DNA from two or more organisms to improve its characteristics. Gene Splicing uses enzymes to remove a gene from the section of DNA in one organism and placer in another organisms for beneficial reasons like the use of a bacterium to produce human insulin.

Cloning-making an exact copy of organism Ecology-Study of interactions between living things and their environment Abiotic factors- non-living things Biotic-living factors Energy Pyramids-show how energy is passed through the environment. All energy is pass from sun to green plants that trap energy through photosynthesis> Cellular respiration to get energy Trophic levels (feeding levels) are energy levels.

Eating Producers/Autotrophs (self energizing) energy from sun, used to produce glucose. Make up base of pyramid Consumers/Heterotrophs (others energizing) eats others; pyramid: Primary consumers-second level, eat plants (herbivores) Secondary Consumers- next level, eat primary consumers Carnivores- meat eaters

Omnivores-eat plants and animals Tertiary consumers third or forth level. Can be carnivores or omnivores. Decomposers-bacteria and funguses live off dead organisms; rot things and put nitrogen and other minerals back into the soil. Scavengers-feed off dead organisms Relationships b/w organisms Predator/Prey- one organism hunts and eats another organism Scavengers- organisms that feed off dead organisms

Symbiosis- permanent relationship among organisms Mutualism-both organism benefit from relationship Commensalism-one organism benefits other neither harmed or benefited Parasitism- one organism benefits other harmed Niche-job or role of organisms what it has to do to stay alive Competition"fight" b/w organisms in organisms in an ecosystem for food or

shelter.

Viruses small parasite that cannot reproduce by itself.

Not considered living; do not have all characteristics of life. Antibiotics WONT kill. Contain either DNA or RNA- single or double stranded Lytic or Lysogenic cycles Evolution Charles Darwin- proposed the organisms change over time (evolution)

Natural selection (survival of the fittest)process by which species derived from common ancestor; individual organisms or phenotype so that possess favorable traits are more likely to survive and reproduce. Descent with modification- change in populations over generations. Lines of evidence Fossils (geological time) Homologous structures similarity in structure of different parts and organs of different animals (human hand/dogs paw); inherited from common ancestors Analogous structure-save same function in different species, but

evolved independently (winds of bats, birds and butterflies. Vestigial-refers to parts and organs that, due to historical evolution and development, may no longer be necessary (tail bone, appendix) Embryology-embryos of various species all appear identical Lines of evidence Biochemistry- DNA and protein(amino acid) sequence comparison Adaptive radiation- an ancestral species radiates or diverges into many species (Galapagos finches) Evolution theories

Endosymbiosis-eukaryotic cells formed when prokaryotic cells began to live together permanently. Urey and Miller-simulated Earth's early environment and created organic compounds like amino acids. Biologist Robert Hooke-discovered and named cells Anton van Leeuwenhoek-Named living cells Gregor Mendel-father of genetics; patterns of inheritance with pea plants.
