The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
What’s Trending with the Elements?
This resource, aligned with Chemistry TEKS (5)(C), provides alternative or additional tier-one learning options for students using the periodic table to identify and explain trends.
Cell Specialization and Differentiation
Given examples, descriptions, and illustrations, students will be able to describe the role of DNA, RNA, and environmental factors in cell differentiation.
The Bohr Model
Students will understand Bohr’s experimental design and conclusions that lead to the development of his model of the atom, as well as the limitations of his model.
Survival of a Species
Given scenarios, illustrations or descriptions, the student will describe how long-term survival of species is dependent on changing resource bases that are limited.
Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will predict the shape of molecules based upon the extent of the electron pair electrostatic repulsion.
Chemical Bonding: Metallic Bonds
