In living systems, energy flows through matter and is stored and released through chemical reactions. Basic survival energy transformations between cells and their environment include aerobic and anaerobic respiration and photosynthesis reactions. Energy is necessary for work to be accomplished and life to be sustained (e.g., At the cellular level, this work can be growth, repair, reproduction, and synthesis).
- Life Science
- All living organisms and their component cells have identifiable characteristics that allow for survival.
Students demonstrate their understanding of how Energy Flow Within Cells Supports an Organism’s Survival by
