Document Summary

Know the 10 levels of biological organization as described in section 1. 1, figure 1. 3. Cell, tissue, organ, organ system, organism, population, community, ecosystem, Know the three domains of living things as described in section 1. 2. Understand the aspects of scientific inquiry as described in the textbook in section 1. 3. Deductive reasoning- apply general principles to predict scientific results. Inductive reasoning- use specific observations to construct general principles. What you expect to happen in an experiment. Dependent variables- vary depending on the independent variable. Interpreting results/drawing conclusions (do data support or disprove the hypothesis) Proposed explanation for why you got the results you did. Be able to apply the concepts of scientific inquiry above to design an experiment to test a hypothesis. Mass number= total numbers of protons and neutrons. Be able to determine the number of valence electrons based on the atomic number of an atom. Valence electrons are the electrons in the outermost orbital.
