Molecular Basis of Heredity: Demonstrate an understanding that organisms ensure species continuity by passing genetic information from parent to offspring. Utilize genetic information to make predictions about possible offspring. Apply concepts of molecular biology (DNA and genes) to recent discoveries.
Science is a dynamic process; concepts and processes in life systems, earth and space systems, and physical systems are best learned through inquiry and investigation. Students develop an understanding of scientific content through inquiry within the context of these unifying concepts and processes:
