Biology for High Schoolers

  1. 1. Biology: Themes in The Study of Life<br />Areil Henderson<br />EDU 290 11-12:15p.m.<br />High School Biology Class<br />October 10, 2010<br />
  2. 2. About Biology<br />Biology is the scientific study of life.<br />Biology has woven into fabric of our culture more than ever before.<br />Biology apart of our everyday life; without biology we as humans would not exist.<br />
  3. 3. The World of Life<br />Evolution- the process of change that has transformed life on Earth from its earliest beginning to the diversity of organisms living today.<br />
  4. 4. What are the properties of life?<br />Evolutionary adaptation<br />Order<br />Response to the environment<br />Regulation<br />Energy processing<br />Growth and Development<br />Reproduction<br />
  5. 5. Themes of the concepts of biology<br />Emergent properties are due to the arrangement and interactions of parts as complexity increases.<br />Example: If a serious head injury disrupts the intricate architecture of a human brain, the mind may not function properly<br />Our thoughts and memories are emergent properties of a complex network of nerve cells.<br />
  6. 6. Systems Biology<br />Systems biology constructs models for dynamic behavior of whole biological systems.<br />Systems biology is relevant to the study of life at all levels.<br />Systems biology has taken hold at the cellular and molecular levels.<br />
  7. 7. Cells are an organisms basic unit of structure and functions<br />In life, cells have a special place as the lowest level of organization that can perform all activities required for life.<br />The division of cells to form new cells is basis for all reproduction and for the growth and repair of multicellular organisms.<br />Understanding how cells work is a major focus in biological research.<br />
  8. 8. All cells share certain charecteristics<br />Every cell is enclosed be a membrane that regulates the passage of materials between the cell and its surroundings.<br />Every cell uses DNA as its genetic information<br />We can only distinguish between two main forms of cells: prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells.<br />
  9. 9. About the cell<br />Eukaryotic cell<br />Sub-divided by internal membranes into various membrane-enclosed organelles.<br />Plants, animals and all life forms are composed of eukaryotic cells.<br />Prokaryotic cell<br />The DNA is not separated from the rest of the cell by enclosure in a membrane-bounded nucleus.<br />Bacteria and archea are prokaryotic.<br />
  10. 10. How well were you listening?<br />What is biology?<br />Biology the composition, structure, properties, and reactions of matter, especially of atomic and molecular.<br />Biology is the scientific study of life.<br />Biology is designed for explaining what prokaryotes and eukaryotic cells are made of.<br />
  11. 11. Biology Rocks<br />What are the properties of life?<br />Pull out a sheet of paper and list at least 4 of the 7 properties of life.<br />List the importance of systems biology.<br />Give a brief summary of what systems biology is and why it is important to humans.<br />

Biology is the scientific study of life.</li></ul>What are the properties of life?<br />Evolutionary adaptation<br />Order<br />Response to the environment<br />Regulation<br />Energy processing<br />Growth and Development<br />Reproduction<br />List the importance of systems biology.<br />Anywhere along the lines of:<br />Systems biology constructs models for dynamic behavior of whole biological systems.<br />Systems biology is relevant to the study of life at all levels.<br />Systems biology has taken hold at the cellular and molecular levels.<br />
