Students should know that all the fundamental life processes of a cell are either chemical reactions or molecular interactions.
Cell Biology and Bio-Chemistry
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Observe and explain the role of enzymatic catalysis in biochemical processes.
Understand the function of cellular organelles and how the organelles work together in cellular activities (e.g., enzyme secretion from the pancreas).
Demonstrate that most cells function best within a narrow range of temperature and pH; extreme changes usually harm cells of modifying the structure of their macromolecules and, therefore, some of their functions.
Explain that complex interactions among the different kinds of molecules in the cell cause distinct cycles of activities, such as growth and division.
Explain how cell activity in a multicellular plant or animal can be affected by molecules from other parts of the organism.
