CP BIOLOGY - Mr. Nolan 2009-2010
Welcome to Teacher Notes. I hope this helps you, but keep in mind that instructions I provide in class may be more accurate than what I have posted here.
Your homework is to be sure you understand our concepts every day. If you don't, learning the concepts is your homework. You are responsible for your success and future.
LATES: Keep in mind that if you don't hand in homework on time, you are responsible for getting it to me by the start of the next class meeting for a 20% deduction. After that it goes to zero. I won't know who did not submit the homework on time, so I can't remind you.
COPYING: Never copy anything from anybody for any assignment. I follow the student handbook policies for cheating and plagiarism. I value honesty and learning by thinking and putting in effort.

ENERGY TRANSFER & CYCLING OF MATTER
of Living Things:
Made of CELLS
HOMEOSTASIS – maintain stable internal conditions as surroundings
change (ex. sweat to cool)
METABOLISM – carry out chemical reactions to obtain and use energy
(plants use energy from sun to make sugars to break down, animals break down
food nutrients) to grow, move, process info, etc.
RESPOND to changes in surroundings (find shelter from lightning, migrate
south when temperatures decrease, pupils dilate in darkness)
6. HEREDITY - Pass on DNA as genetic information to offspring.
GROW at some point in life
