Biology

Quarter 1 Essential Standards: 

1. Essential HS.L1U1.20 - I can ask questions and/or make predictions based on observations and evidence to demonstrate how cellular organization, structure, and function allow organisms to maintain homeostasis.

  • PlusHS.Bio.L1U1.4: I can develop and use models to explain the interdependency and interactions between cellular organelles. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L1U1.5: I can analyze and interpret data that demonstrates the relationship between cellular function and the diversity of protein functions.

  • PlusHS.Bio.L1U1.6: I can develop and use models to show how transport mechanisms function in cells. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L1U1.7: I can develop and use models to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms (plant and animal). 

2. Essential HS.L2U1.21 - I can obtain, evaluate, and communicate data showing the relationship of photosynthesis and cellular respiration; flow of energy and cycling of matter. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L2U1.8: I can develop and use models to develop a scientific explanation that illustrates how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy and how cellular respiration breaks down macromolecules for use in metabolic processes.

  • Incorporated Earth Science Standard: HS.E1U1.12: Develop and use models of the Earth that explains the role of energy and matter in Earth’s constantly changing internal and external systems (geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere).


Quarter 2 Essential Standards:

1. Essential HS.L1U1.22 - I can construct an explanation for how cellular division (mitosis) is the process by which organisms grow and maintain complex, interconnected systems.

2. Essential HS.L1U3.23 - I can obtain, evaluate, and communicate the ethical, social, economic and/or political implications of the detection and treatment of abnormal cell function. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L1U1.9: I can develop and use a model to communicate how a cell copies genetic information to make new cells during asexual reproduction (mitosis).

2. Essential HS.L4U1.27 - I can obtain, evaluate, and communicate evidence that describes how changes in frequency of inherited traits in a population can lead to biological diversity. 

3. Essential HS.L4U1.28 - I can gather, evaluate, and communicate multiple lines of empirical evidence to explain the mechanisms of biological evolution. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L4U1.13: I can obtain, evaluate, and communicate multiple lines of empirical evidence to explain the change in genetic composition of a population over successive generations.

Quarter 4 Essential Standards:

1. Essential HS.L2U1.19 - I can develop and use models that show how changes in the transfer of matter and energy within an ecosystem and interactions between species may affect organisms and their environment.

  • PlusHS.Bio.L2U1.3: I can use mathematics and computational thinking to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy through trophic levels in an ecosystem. 

  • Incorporated Earth Science Standard: E1U1.12: Develop and use models of the Earth that explains the role of energy and matter in the Earth’s constantly changing internal and external systems (geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere)

3. Essential HS.L2U3.18 - I can obtain, evaluate, and communicate about the positive and negative ethical, social, economic, and political implications of human activity on the biodiversity of an ecosystem. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L2U1.1: I can develop a model showing the relationship between limiting factors and carrying capacity, and use the model to make predictions on how environmental changes impact biodiversity. 

  • PlusHS.Bio.L4U1.2: I can engage in argument from evidence that changes in environmental conditions or human interventions may change species diversity in an ecosystem.

  • Incorporated Earth Science Standard: E1U3.14: Engage in argument from evidence about the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, changes in climate, and human activity and how they influence each other.
