Category 1: Cell Structure and Function

TEKS B.4 and B.5 are included and clearly outlined.

2 pages- Compare and Contrast Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells

2 pages- Investigate and Explain Cellular Processes, Including Homeostasis and Transport of Molecules

3 pages- Compare the structure of viruses to cells, describe viral reproduction, and describe the role of viruses in causing diseases such as HIV and influenza.

2 pages- Describe the stages of the cell cycle including deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) replication and mitosis, and the importance of the cell cycle to the growth of organisms.

2 pages- Describe the roles of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA, ribonucleic acid (RNA), and environmental roles in cell differentiation.

2 pages- Recognize that disruptions of the cell cycle lead to diseases such as cancer

Category 2: Mechanisms of Genetics
TEKS B.6 included and clearly outlined.

2 pages- Identify components of DNA, identify how information for specifying the traits of an organism is carried in the DNA, and examine scientific explanations for the origin of DNA.

1 page- Recognize that components that make up the genetic code are common to all organisms.

2 pages- Explain the purpose of transcription and translation using models of DNA and RNA

2 pages- Recognize that gene expression is a regulated process.

2 pages- Identify and illustrate changes in DNA and evaluate the significance of these changes.

2 pages- Predict possible outcomes of genetic combinations such as monohybrid crosses, dihybrid crosses, and non-Mendelian inheritance.

2 pages- Recognize the significance of meiosis to sexual reproduction.

Category 3: Evolution and Classification

TEKS B.7 and B.8 included and clearly outlined.

3 pages- B.7 (A) Analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular and development.

1 page- B.7 (B) Examine scientific explanations of abrupt appearance and stasis in the fossil record

2 pages- B.7 (C) Analyze and evaluate how natural selection produces change in populations, not individuals

2 pages- B.7 (D) Analyze and evaluate how the elements of natural selection, including inherited variation, the potential to produce more offspring than can survive, and a finite supply of resources, result in differential reproductive success.

2 pages- B.7 (E) Analyze and evaluate the relationship of natural selection to the adaptation and to the development of diversity in and among species.

2 pages- B.7 (F) Analyze other evolutionary mechanisms, including genetic drift, gene flow, mutation, and recombination.

1 page- B.8 (A) Define taxonomy and recognize the importance of a standardized taxonomic system to the scientific community.

2 pages- B.8 (B) Categorize organisms using a hierarchical classification system based on similarities and differences

1 page- B.8 (C) Compare characteristics of taxonomic groups, including archaea, bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals

Optional cover page to make a booklet.

An alternate version is available that has guided answers.

Black and white versions included.

Answer key is included.
