1 BIOLOGY- SEMESTER 1

2 MAIN CONCEPTS SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY »BEING A SCIENTIST » JOURNALING TECHNIQUES » SCIENCE STANDARD #1 » SCIENTIFIC METHOD » BSCS 5 Es OF SCIENCE » 6 UNIFYING PRINIPLES OF BIOLOGY » GRAPHING TECHNIQUES » MICROSCOPE USE

3 MAIN CONCEPTS EVOLUTION – THE HUMAN ANIMAL – CHANGE ACROSS TIME – UNITY AND DIVERSITY ORGANISMS AND CLASSIFICATION

4 MAIN CONCEPTS HOMEOSTASIS –THE CELLULAR BASIS OF ACTIVITY LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION –INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT OF ORGANISMS CELL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION MAINTAINING BALANCE IN ORGANISMS BODY SYSTEMS

5 MAIN CONCEPTS ENERGY, MATTER AND ORGANIZATION – PERFORMANCE AND FITNESS – CELLULAR ACTIVITY RESPIRATION AND PHOTOSYNTHESIS

6 BEING A SCIENTIST COOPERATING LIKE A SCIENTIST – USUALLY BETTER TO DO SCIENCE IN GROUPS – PARTNERS CAN HELP ACCOMPLISH MORE – COLLABORATION IS KEY- SEEK OTHERS OPINIONS – COMPARING DATA AND RESULTS – BUILD CONCENSUS!!!

7 COMMUNICATING LIKE A SCIENTIST Folder Set-Up and Maintenance –Left Folder Pocket- Label Classwork –Right Folder Pocket- Label Skeleton Notes –Three-Ring Section- Add Loose Leaf for Daily POD Start new paper for Unit, Section, Objective, and Assignment OTHER USES FOR YOUR FOLDER – WRITING LAB REPORTS – RECORDING DATA – RESPONDING TO QUESTIONS – TAKING NOTES – RECORDING YOUR QUESTIONS AND DUTIES

8 COMMUNICATING LIKE A SCIENTIST Daily Procedures –First 5 Minutes- Settle Down & Warm Up Record Date, Unit, Section Objective and Assignments in Middle Section Problem Of the Day (POD)- Warm Up –Record POD in daily section and attempt to answer. –If no POD is displayed, do default warm-up: –Write 3 sentences describing what you learned in the previous Biology class

9 SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY VOCABULARY Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new [1] knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. [2] A scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation and experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.

10 IN OTHER WORDS… IT IS THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH

11 SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY VOCAB. A____________is a broad and comprehensive statement of what is believed to be true, supported by considerable experimental evidence resulting from many tests of related hypotheses. A _______________ is a proposed explanation for an observation. A_______________________is an question whose result can be determined scientifically through experimentation. Usually the reason or motivation for performing a lab. A__________________ is an answer, proposition or resolution based on prior knowledge, observation, inference, or the evidence and data gathered in an experiment. What you learned from the experiment! THEORY HYPOTHESIS TESTABLE QUESTION CONCLUSION

12 In science, _______________ is the process of acquiring information through your senses or specialized recording equipment, and the accumulation of this data through experimentation. This ___________is used to support or demonstrate the fact that something is true. ____________ is a type of observation that based on describing what is going on in the experiment (ie. The car is blue). Whereas _____________ is a type of observation or data that involves measurements, amounts, or numbers. ___________The act of deriving a logical conclusion from an observation. EVIDENCE OBSERVATION QUANTITATIVE QUALITATIVE INFERENCE

13 A___________________________ is a set of procedures through which you control all variables except for one. The _______________________ is a factor in an experiment that is changed ON PURPOSE by those who are conducting that experiment. It is usually plotted on the x-axis of a graph. On the other hand, the ____________________ is a factor in an experiment that changes depending on what happens to the other factors in an experiment. It is usually plotted on the y-axis of a graph. A __________ is something that stays the same throughout an experiment. In many cases, time is used. CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT DEPENDENT VARIABLE CONSTANT INDEPENDENT VARIABLE

14 THINKING AS A SCIENTIST THINKS THE BLACK BOX LAB USING THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD ASK A QUESTION GATHER INFORMATION USE LOGICAL REASONING MAKE A PREDICTION TEST YOUR PREDICTION GATHER DATA DRAW A CONCLUSION

15 THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD

16 DATA TABLES & GRAPHING

17 WRITING LAB REPORTS AND EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN DIAGRAMS

18 THE 6 UNIFYING PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGY 1.Evolution- The Patters and Products of Change in Living Systems 2.Homeostasis- Maintaining Dynamic Equilibrium In Living Systems 3.Energy, Matter, and Organization- Relationships in Living Systems 4.Continuity- Reproduction and Inheritance in Living Systems 5.Development- Growth and Differentiation in Living Systems 6.Ecology- Interaction and Interdependence in Living Systems

19 THE 5 ES OF SCIENTIFIC THINKING 1.Engage- Get Interested in the Topic 2.Explore- Find out More About the Topic 3.Explain- Describe the Topic 4.Elaborate- Get into Detail About the Topic 5.Evaluate- Summarize What You Learned About the Topic
