Friday 6-6-09 for B day
Monday 6-9-09 for A day
Most of the 60 question multiple choice exam will focus on macromolecules, cells, DNA, and evolution. There will be also be some questions about the scientific method, variables and reading charts and graphs. Anything we’ve covered in class may be on the final.
Review chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, and 13 in our AGS biology book. If you took notes on the chapters, as assigned, you will have a much easier time.
Review your notes on the readings and notes from class. QUIZ YOURSELF or work with a partner to quiz each other to see if you know what the terms mean in your own words.
I may make the final open notes so bring your complete notes just incase.
Topics you must make sure you can demonstrate your knowledge about:
Experiments: for example, independent and dependent variables
Macromoleules: for example, lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids
Atomic structure: for example, electrons, protons, neutrons
Homeostasis: for example, osmosis, hypertonic and hypotonic solutions
Cells: for example, organelles such as nucleus, mitochondria, membranes and chloroplasts, as well as photosynthesis and ATP,
DNA: for example, cytosine, guanine, thiamine, adenine, deoxyribose backbone, codons, mutations, replication, base pairing, double helix
Genes: for example, genetic engineering, genotype, transgenic species, mutations
Human Genome: for example, percent of shared DNA with other species
Mitosis: for example, interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, cytokinesis cell division, cancer
Meiosis: for example, production of gametes
Evolution: for example, natural selection, common descent, common ancestors, Origin of Species, Charles Darwin, Lamarck, evidence, homologous structures, biogeography
HOMEWORK: Write at least 15 test questions with an answers including at least one Q and A for each of the above topics. This is due the day of the final as a review.
