Additional Ideas for Developing Investigations and Learning Experiences and Suggested Extensions to Learning in Technology/Engineering are in Appendix III.
|2.1 ||Relate cell parts/organelles to their functions.*|
|2.2 ||Differentiate between prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells, in terms of their general structures and degrees of complexity.*|
|2.3 ||Distinguish between plant and animal cells.*|
|2.4 ||Describe how cells function in a narrow range of physical conditions, such as temperature and pH, to perform life functions that help to maintain homeostasis.|
|2.5 ||Explain the role of cell membranes as a highly selective barrier (diffusion, osmosis, and active transport).*|
|2.6 ||Identify the reactants and products in the general reaction of photosynthesis. Describe the use of isotopes in this identification.|
|2.7 ||Provide evidence that the organic compounds produced by plants are the primary source of energy and nutrients for most living things.*|
|2.8 ||Identify how cellular respiration is important for the production of ATP.|
|2.9 ||Explain the interrelated nature of photosynthesis and cellular respiration.*|
|2.10 ||Describe and compare the processes of mitosis and meiosis, and their role in the cell cycle.*|
