Bio1: Students will demonstrate that the fundamental life processes of plants and animals depend on a variety of chemical reactions that occur in specialized areas of the organism's cells.

Bio2: Students will demonstrate that evolution is the result of genetic changes that occur in constantly changing environments.

Bio3: As a result of the coordinated structures and functions of organ systems, the internal environment of the human body remains relatively stable (homeostatic) despite changes in the outside environment.

Students will demonstrate that genes are a set of instructions encoded in the DNA sequence of each organism that specify the sequence of amino acids in proteins characteristic of that organism.

Students will demonstrate that stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects.

Students will also demonstrate that organisms have a variety of mechanisms to combat disease.
