Biology- Regents Review Vocabulary - ABC

  1. 1. Living Environment Vocabulary sorted alphabetically William Siebert Arlington High School VOCABULARY FOR THE NEW YORK STATE LIVING ENVIRONMENT CORE CURRICULUM GUIDE Alphabetized by Bill Siebert, Arlington High School, Lagrangeville NY updated with lab appendix and several terms to be included in a new edition to be released at some pointNote on Part D Vocabulary:According to various people involved in Regents Exam development at SED, we can use the words specific to arequired lab in Part D only in an item based on that particular lab, and this would only be acceptable to the extentthat it was explained in the lab. A word from one lab can not be used in items based on any of the other requiredlabs. In other words, we cannot just take a vocabulary word in a lab and assume full knowledge of it in the way it isunderstood now, or was required in the old syllabus. The words have a context and that must be considered too.For example, a word such as mRNA can be used when asking about the Biodiversity lab. A student could be asked,given a particular DNA sequence and a mRNA codon table, to deduce the mRNA that would be formed, but aquestion about its movement from the nucleus to the ribosomes would not be OK unless that was specificallymentioned in the lab.A word that does not appear in the core, but is used in one of the required labs cant show up on Parts A, B, or C ofthe same exam even though the lab is required during that academic year.Using the same example, since in the Biodiversity Lab the word “translates” is used in explaining the connectionbetween the mRNA and the protein, it would be acceptable to see the word “translates” or “translation” in aquestion that specifically tests the Biodiversity lab, but a question on part A or B to the tune of “Identify themolecule that is made when the sequence of molecular bases originally in DNA is translated.” would not beacceptable. 1
