Biomolecules

Foundational Concept 1: Biomolecules have unique properties that determine how they contribute to the structure and function of cells, and how they participate in the processes necessary to maintain life.

Cells

Organ systems

Foundational Concept 3: Complex systems of tissues and organs sense the internal and external environments of multicellular organisms, and through integrated functioning, maintain a stable internal environment within an ever-changing external environment.

Physical processes

Foundational Concept 4: Complex living organisms transport materials, sense their environment, process signals, and respond to changes using processes that can be understood in terms of physical principles.

Chemical processes

Foundational Concept 5: The principles that govern chemical interactions and reactions form the basis for a broader understanding of the molecular dynamics of living systems.

Processing the environment

Demographics

9B: There are many different ways of looking at a population. You can separate the population into different groups to view statistics. For instance, one may want to compare the efficacy of a drug in treating diabetics with congestive heart failure compared to diabetics without heart failure - these each form two separate populations of patients. In this module, you will come to see how different populations interact and change over time.

Culture

Why is it that in America it is acceptable to eat a quarter pound hamburger and guzzle down a large soft drink yet it is weird to eat a grasshopper? The answer is because of our culture. Culture varies across the world and provides rules for a society of people to live by. Here we explore what culture is and how it shapes our human experience.
