The Science of Biology
1 Science methodology
1.1 4) Collecting And Analyzing Data
1.1.1 record observations; gather information quantitatively and qualitatively
1.2 3) Designing Controlled Experiments
1.2.1 independent and dependent variables must be present
1.3 5) Drawing Conclusions
1.3.1 draw conclusions based on data; look back to hypothesis
1.4 2) Inferring and Forming a Hypothesis
1.4.1 Use observations to make inferences that can lead to a hypothesis
1.5 1)Observing and Asking Questions
1.5.1 Begin with noticing events in a careful, orderly way that can lead to other new questions
2 Scientific Laws/Theories
2.1 Scientific Law
2.1.1 laws are concise, specific descriptions of how some aspect of the natural world is expected to behave in a certain situation
2.2 Scientific Theory
2.2.1 A scientific theory is a well-tested explanation that unifies a broad range of observations and hypothesis and that enables scientist to make accurate predictions about new situations.
3 Science and Society
3.1 They are related
3.1.1 science involves understanding its context in society and its limitations
4 Characteristics of living things
4.1 iving things are based on a universal genetic code
4.2 living things grow and develop
4.3 living things respond to their environment
4.4 living things reproduce
4.5 living things maintain a stable internal environment
4.6 living things obtain and use material and energy
4.7 living things are made up of cells

5 Big Ideas in Biology
5.1 Cellular Basis of Life
5.1.1 living things are made of cells
5.2 Information and Heredity
5.2.1 living things are based on universal genetic code called DNA
5.3 Matter and Energy
5.3.1 living things obtain and use material and energy
5.4 Growth, Development, and Reproduction
5.4.1 all living things reproduce; generalized cells become specialized during growth and development
5.5 Homeostasis
5.5.1 living things maintain a stable internal environment
5.6 Evolution
5.6.1 living things evolve physically and internally
5.7 Structure and Function
5.7.1 some structures have evolved to fit their functions
5.8 Unity and Diversity of Life
5.8.1 all living things are fundamentally similar at molecular level but are in variety of forms
5.9 Interdependence in Nature
5.9.1 all living things are connected into a biosphere
5.10 Science as a Way of Knowing
5.10.1 science is not just facts but an explanation of the natural world
