  1. 1. Name _______________________________ Date ______________________ Per _____ Midterm Study GuideThe following list is meant to only be a guide to help you prepare for the midterm. This isnot a definitive list. There may be questions on areas of the course that are not shown onthis list, however I will attempt whenever possible to make the test question subject areasalign to this guide.1. What is Biology and what are some benefits of studying biology?2. What are the 5 life processes3. What is homeostasis?4. Recognize the control group and the experimental group5. Identify the independent and dependent variable6. What is a product and what is a reactant?7. What is an enzyme and how do they work?8. Know all the parts of the microscope and their functions9. Compare and contrast types of microscopes (compound, stereomicroscopes, transmission electron, scanning electron)10. compare and contrast eukaryotes and prokaryotes11. Know the organelles of a eukaryotic plant and animal cell and their functions12. Compare plant and animal cells13. What is diffusion and osmosis14. What is equilibrium?15. What is active transport?16. What are the levels of organization in multicellular organisms17. Know everything about photosynthesis (where it takes place, reactancts and products, what effects it, etc…)
