400 possible mastery points
About this unitYour body is an amazing system of interacting parts. In this unit, we'll go from micro to macro as we explore genes, cells, and organisms. Learn about cell specialization, DNA and proteins, and the organization of multipcellular organisms, all while gaining a deeper appreciation for what makes you, you!
How do cells perform the essential functions of life? Learn how systems of cells create eyeballs, livers, and more!
Multicellular organisms contain worlds within worlds—each system is both made up of smaller systems and is part of larger systems.
