1 June 206 Grading Period: st 9 s Scientific Method and Parts of Experiment Chemical Bonding, Properties of Water, ph scale b- Formulate questions that can be answered through research and experimental design. c Apply the components of scientific process and methods in the classroom and laboratory investigations. d Construct and analyze graphs. e- Analyze procedures, data, and conclusions to determine the scientific validity of research. f- Recognize and analyze alternative explanations for experimental results and make predictions based on observations and prior knowledge. g- Communicate and defend a scientific argument in oral, written, and graphic form. 2a Explain and compare the types of bond formations between or among atoms. 2b Develop a logical argument defending water as an essential component of living systems. 2c Classify solutions as acidic, basic, or neutral and relate the significance of the ph scale to an organism s survival. 3 s Conduct an original experiment. Provide student with experimental scenarios to select independent and dependent variables. Collect, analyze, graph, and summarize data. Use SI units in data collection. Analyze articles on recent scientific studies for bias and validity. Analyze results from lab experiments and offer multiple explanations for their results. Write lab report, create graphs, and present to classmates. Draw or build models of each type of bond. Review over Lewis Dot structures and atom models. Review over use of periodic table. Demonstrate properties of water using household materials and relate the findings to living organisms. Let student s measure ph of household substances and discuss ph levels in different parts of the body.

2 Chemistry of Life/Organic Chemistry and Enzymes 2d Compare the structure, properties, and functions of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids in living organisms. 2e Examine the life processes to conclude the role enzymes play in regulating biochemical reactions. 2 s COMPETENCY COMPETENCY 2 June 206 Draw models of organic compounds identify organic compounds in food labels or do a virtual lab on test analysis for organic compounds in foods.

Chart of Symbiotic Relationships. Predator-prey simulation. Build food chains and food webs. Biomes and Changes in the Environment Theory of Evolution 3a Compare/contrast the characteristics of the world s biomes. 3c Examine and evaluate the significance of natural events and human activities on major ecosystems. (succession, populations, natural resources) 6c- Research and summarize the contributions of scientists (Darwin, Malthus, Wallace, Lamarck, and Lyell) whose work led to the development to the theory of evolution. Biome project (biome-in a-box, brochure, and poster). Discuss primary and secondary succession. Recycling project. Students research theories and give a brief overview. 4

5 Evidence of Evolution and Natural Selection Classification Overview of Six Kingdoms 6e- Differentiate among chemical evolution, organic evolution, and the evolutionary steps along the way to aerobic heterotrophs and photosynthetic autotroph. 6d- Analyze and explain the roles of natural selection, including the mechanisms of speciation and the applications of speciation. (mutations, geographic isolation, antibiotic resistance) 6a Draw conclusions about how organisms are classified into a hierarchy of groups based on similarities that reflect their evolutionary relationships. (taxonomy) 6a Draw conclusions about how organisms are classified into an hierarchy of groups based on similarities that reflect their evolutionary relationships.
