It looks like I'm not completing my chemistry education with this book after all, unfortunately. This is sort of a shame, as I spent a great deal of time with it open in front of me, this past semester. I took away a "B" I think for the class and the instructor didn't teach a damned thing so I think that says a lot for the book.
As far as textbooks go, this one wasn't that bad. It was broken down into manageable chunks of information. The information was relevant and presented in a good way. This is probably the first and last textbook in my college career I will have read from cover to cover. Thankfully, it is also probably the most clear, well-written, and relevant-to-the-course textbook I have used.
It got me through 2 semesters, and now I'm done with chemistry classes for the rest of time hopefully. Very informative chemistry book.
Structural Organization of the Human Body – Anatomy and Physiology
Well written, illustrated, great everyday jobs associated with learning topics. My only caveat is that she used poisonous rather than venomous when speaking about snakes, snakes have fangs they inject venom, toads have poison on their skin the are poisonous. Beside that great book for chemistry! I found this to be a great textbook. Easy to read, it got me through the semester and helped me get a distinction.
I had never studied Chemistry before and I found this to be a great introduction to the subject. Pretty much read it cover to cover. Aug 29, Camille Ewell rated it liked it. Really hard to understand the topics later in the book. Multicellular organisms have a hierarchical structural organization, in which any one system is made up of numerous parts and is itself a component of the next level.
Feedback mechanisms can encourage through positive feedback or discourage negative feedback what is going on inside the living system.
Representing structures of organic molecules
B: Growth and Development of Organisms In multicellular organisms individual cells grow and then divide via a process called mitosis, thereby allowing the organism to grow. The organism begins as a single cell fertilized egg that divides successively to produce many cells, with each parent cell passing identical genetic material two variants of each chromosome pair to both daughter cells. Cellular division and differentiation produce and maintain a complex organism, composed of systems of tissues and organs that work together to meet the needs of the whole organism.
C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms The process of photosynthesis converts light energy to stored chemical energy by converting carbon dioxide plus water into sugars plus released oxygen.
HS-LS The sugar molecules thus formed contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen: their hydrocarbon backbones are used to make amino acids and other carbon-based molecules that can be assembled into larger molecules such as proteins or DNA , used for example to form new cells.
HS-LS As matter and energy flow through different organizational levels of living systems, chemical elements are recombined in different ways to form different products. Cellular respiration is a chemical process in which the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and new compounds are formed that can transport energy to muscles. Cellular respiration also releases the energy needed to maintain body temperature despite ongoing energy transfer to the surrounding environment. Students who demonstrate understanding can: HS-LS Science and Engineering Practices Developing and Using Models Modeling in 9—12 builds on K—8 experiences and progresses to using, synthesizing, and developing models to predict and show relationships among variables between systems and their components in the natural and designed worlds.
Disciplinary Core Ideas LS1.
B HS-LS Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to important distinctions the author makes and to any gaps or inconsistencies in the account. Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and audience.
Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question including a self-generated question or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the specific task, purpose, and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation.
Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. Make strategic use of digital media e.
