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
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.
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
TEKS B.9 and B.10 included and clearly outlined.
2 pages- B.9 (A) Compare the functions of different types of biomolecules, including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids
2 pages- B.9 (B) Compare the reactants and products of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in terms of energy, energy conversions, and matter.
2 pages- B.9 (C) Identify and investigate the role of enzymes.
3 pages- B.10 (A) Describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of regulation, nutrient absorption, reproduction, and defense from injury or illness in animals.
3 pages- B.10 (B) Describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of transport, reproduction, and response in plants.
1 page- B.10 (C) Analyze the levels of organization in biological systems and relate the levels to each other and to the whole system.
TEKS B.11 and B.12 included and clearly outlined.
1 page- B.11 (A) Summarize the role of microorganisms in both maintaining and disrupting the health of both ecosystems and organisms.
2 pages- B.11 (B) Describe how event and processes that occur during ecological succession can change populations and species diversity.

1 page-B.12 (B) Compare variations and adaptations of organisms in different ecosystems
2 pages- B.12 (C) Analyze the flow of matter and energy through trophic levels using various models, including food chains, food webs, and ecological pyramids.
2 pages- B.12 (D) Describe the flow of matter through the carbon and nitrogen cycles and explain the consequence of disrupting these cycles.
2 pages- B.12 (E) Describe how environmental change can impact ecosystem stability.
