2 Biology Detailed Course/Unit Overview Biology is a high school level course which satisfies Ohio Core science graduation requirements as required by section of the Ohio Revised Code. This course investigates the composition, diversity, complexity and interconnectedness of life on Earth. Fundamental concepts of heredity and evolution provide a framework through inquiry-based instruction to explore the living world, the physical environment and the interactions within and between them. Cells Elaboration for Instruction Building on knowledge from middle school (cell theory), this topic focuses on the cell as a system itself (single-celled organism) and as part of larger systems, sometimes as part of a multicellular organism, always as part of an ecosystem. The cell is a system that conducts a variety of functions associated with life. Materials enter and leave the cell as these functions occur through a cell membrane, which serves as a boundary between the cell and its environment. Important concepts include: Cell Structure and Function - Structure, function and interrelatedness of cell organelles - Eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells Cellular Processes - Characteristics of life regulated by cellular processes - Photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, cellular respiration - Cell division and differentiation Addressed in middle school NGSS HS.LS-SFIP Structure, Function, and Information Processing a. Obtain and communicate information explaining how the structure and function of systems of specialized cells within organisms help them perform the essential functions of life. c. Develop and use models to explain the hierarchical organization of interacting systems working together to provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. HS.LS-MEOE Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems a. Construct a model to support explanations of the process of photosynthesis by which light energy is converted to stored chemical energy. b. Construct an explanation of how sugar molecules that contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are combined with other elements to form amino acids and other large carbon-based molecules. c. Use a model to explain cellular respiration as a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and bonds in new compounds are formed that result in a net transfer of energy. d. Evaluate data to compare the energy efficiency of aerobic and anaerobic respiration within organisms. b. Use a model to explain how mitotic cell division results in daughter cells with identical patterns of genetic materials essential for growth and repair of multicellular organisms. c. Construct an explanation for how cell differentiation is the result of activation or inactivation of specific genes as well as small differences in the immediate environment of the cells. d. Use a model to describe the role of cellular division and differentiation to produce and maintain complex organisms composed of organ systems and tissue subsystems that work together to meet the needs of the entire organism.
3 Heredity Elaboration for Instruction Building on knowledge from elementary school (plants and animals have life cycles and offspring resemble their parents) and knowledge from middle school (reproduction, inherited traits and diversity of species), this topic focuses on the explanation of genetic mechanisms and the molecular basis of inheritance. Important concepts include: Cellular Genetics Structure and function of DNA in cells Genetic mechanisms and inheritance Mutations c. Construct an explanation for how cell differentiation is the result of activation or inactivation of specific genes as well as small differences in the immediate environment of the cells. HS.LS-SFIP Structure, Function, and Information Processing b. Communicate information about how DNA sequences determine the structure and function of proteins. a. Ask questions and obtain information about the role of patterns of gene sequences in DNA molecules and subsequent inheritance of traits. e. Communicate information about the role of the structure of DNA and the mechanisms in meiosis for transmitting genetic information from parents to offspring. f. Communicate information that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) genetic combinations in haploid sex cells, (2) errors occurring during replication, (3) crossover between homologous chromosomes during meiosis, and (4) environmental factors. g. Use probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. f. Communicate information that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) genetic combinations in haploid sex cells, (2) errors occurring during replication, (3) crossover between homologous chromosomes during meiosis, and (4) environmental factors.
4 Evolution Elaboration for Instruction Building on knowledge from elementary school (living things can only survive when their basic needs are met and comparing fossils to current life forms) and from middle school (diversity of species through gradual process), this topic focuses on evolutionary mechanisms and the unity and diversity of life. Evolution is not an explanation for the origin of life, but the accepted science-based explanation for the origin of the diversity of life. Emphasis shifts from thinking in terms of selection of individuals with a particular trait to changing proportions of a trait in populations. This evolutionary theme can use the Modern Synthesis Theory, historical perspectives as represented by study of the theory s development from the time of Darwin and his contemporaries, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), phenotypic and genetic variability in populations brought about by random mutations, independent assortment and genetic recombination that occur as gametes are produced, speciation, natural selection and genetic drift. Important concepts include: Natural Selection - Undirected variation and environmental change - Genetic drift, immigration, emigration and mutation - History of life on Earth Evolution and Diversity of Life - Speciation and biological classification based on molecular evidence - Variation of organisms within a species due to population genetics and gene frequency HS.LS-NSE Natural Selection and Evolution a. Use models to explain how the process of natural selection is the result of four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the selection of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment. b. Use evidence to explain the process by which natural selection leads to adaptations that result in populations dominated by organisms that are anatomically, behaviorally, and physiologically able to survive and/or reproduce in a specific environment. c. Analyze and interpret data to explain the process by which organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase in numbers in future generations; but organisms that lack an advantageous heritable trait tend to decrease in numbers in future generations. d. Obtain and communicate information describing how changes in environmental conditions can affect the distribution of traits in a population and cause increases in the numbers of some species, the emergence of new species, and the extinction of other species. f. Plan and carry out investigations to gather evidence of patterns in the relationship between natural selection and changes in the environment. g. Use probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. History of life on Earth addressed in Middle School NGSS HS.LS-NSE Natural Selection and Evolution e. Use evidence obtained from new technologies to compare similarity in DNA sequences, anatomical structures, and embryological appearance as evidence to support multiple lines of descent in evolution. g. Use probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population.
5 Diversity and Interdependence of Life Elaboration for Instruction Building on knowledge from elementary school (interactions of organisms within their environment) and from middle school (cycles of matter and the flow of energy), this topic focuses on the study of diversity and similarity at the molecular level, why diversity within and among species is important, and coherence to the complex array of relationships among organisms and environments studied in prior grades. The concept of an ecosystem should bring coherence to the complex array of relationships among organisms and environments that students have encountered. Students' growing understanding of systems in general can suggest and reinforce characteristics of ecosystems interdependence of parts, feedback, oscillation, inputs and outputs. Variables such as population size, number and kinds of species, and productivity can be considered along with stability and change in ecosystems. Organisms must process energy (flow of energy) and matter (cycles of matter) to survive and reproduce. The cycling of matter and flow of energy can be found at many levels of biological organization, from molecules to ecosystems. The study of food webs starts in the elementary grades with the transfer of matter, continues in the middle grades with the flow of energy through organisms, and then can be integrated in high school as students' understanding of energy storage in molecular configurations develops. Important concepts include: Classification systems are frameworks created by scientists for describing the vast diversity of organisms, indicating the degree of relatedness between organisms. Ecosystems - Homeostasis Carrying capacity Equilibrium and disequilibrium Not explicitly addressed in NGSS HS.LS-SFIP Structure, Function, and Information Processing d. Use modeling to explain the function of positive and negative feedback mechanisms in maintaining homeostasis that is essential for organisms. HS.LS-IRE Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems a. Evaluate data to explain resource availability and other environmental factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems. b. Design solutions for creating or maintaining the sustainability of local ecosystems. c. Construct and use a model to communicate how complex sets of interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms for long periods of time when conditions are stable. d. Construct arguments from evidence about the effects of natural biological or physical disturbances in terms of the time needed to reestablish a stable ecosystem and how the new system differs from the original system. g. Plan and carry out investigations to make mathematical comparisons of the populations and biodiversities of two similar ecosystems at different scales.
6 Physical Science Detailed Course/Unit Overview Physical Science is a high school introductory-level course which satisfies Ohio Core requirements (ODE, 2008), as required by section of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) that requires a three-unit course with inquiry-based laboratory experience that engages students in asking valid scientific questions and gathering and analyzing information. This course introduces students to key concepts and theories that provide a foundation for further study in other sciences and advanced science disciplines. Physical Science comprises the systematic study of the physical world, as related to chemistry, physics and space science. Study of Matter Elaboration of Instruction Building upon observation, exploration and analytical skills developed at the elementary and middle school levels, and foundational knowledge about matter (its basic particle composition and behavior under various conditions), a more extensive understanding of matter, its composition and the changes it undergoes are further constructed. The detailed structures of molecules and the atoms that compose them serve as models that explain the forces of attraction between molecules.
