- Hypothesis Testing
- Modern Forms of Life-Diversity
- All life-forms are composed of ____.
- Control Group
- Experimental Group
- a 1. Diverse environments support diverse organisms.
- b in an experiment, the group that is exposed to the treatment, that is, to one version of the independent variable.
- c Matter
- d the group that does not receive the experimental treatment.
- e 5 Stage Process
1. Observations are made regarding natural phenomena.
2. These observations lead to a hypothesis that tries to explain the phenomena. A useful hypothesis is one that is testable because it makes specific preditions.
3. Experimentation is conducted to determine if the predictions are correct.
4. The data from the experiment are analyzed.
5. The hypothesis is considered to be consistent with the data, or it is rejected.
5 Multiple choice questions
- If exercise is related to weight loss then increasing the amount of daily exercise in someone's routine will cause them to lose weight.
- 1. Proposed explanation for a natural phenomenon
2. Educated guess based on previous observations or experimental studies
3. Hypothesis must make predictions that can shown to be correct or incorrect (must be falsifiable)
4. Additional observations or experiments support or reject a hypothesis
5. A hypothesis is never absolutely proven
6. We may not have found the true explanation for a phenomenon.
- in a modern taxonomic system, a domain made up of all eukaryotes; this domain aligns with the traditional kingdoms Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia
- DoKi P ClOFaGeS
- Domain (largest)
- Species (smallest) It describes genetically similar individuals that are capable of mating to produce fertile offspring.
- 1. Progression of changes in a lineage
2. New species evolve from preexisting species by the accumulation of mutations
3. Natural selection takes advantage of beneficial mutations
5 True/False questions
Genome Characteristics → 1. Stores information in a stable form: The genome of every organism stores information that provides a blueprint to create its characteristics.
2. Provides continuity from generation to generation: The genome is copied and transmitted from generation to generation.
3. Acts as an instrument of evolutionary change: Every now and then, the genome undergoes a mutation that may alter the characteristics of an organism. In addition, a genome may acquire new genes by horizontal gene transfer. The accumulation of such changes from generation to generation produces the evolutionary changes that alter species and produce new species.
Independent Variable → independent variable, the component or factor being tested
Bacteria → (microbiology) single-celled or noncellular spherical or spiral or rod-shaped organisms lacking chlorophyll that reproduce by fission
Archaea → One of two prokaryotic domains of life, the other being Bacteria. Unicellular Prokaryote.
Enzymes (Proteomes) → Is the entire protein complement of a cell or organism. Proteins are largely responsible for the structure and function of cells and complete organisms. All of the proteins that a cell or organism can make.
