Biology is simply applied Chemistry. Well, at least at the level of cellular function it is. But since cells are the smallest unit of life, understanding the nature of ions and molecules allows us not only to understand the structure and function of cells, but to explore questions about what life is at its essence.
Study Guides to help prepare students for quizzes and exams.
Students should treat these guides as practice quizzes/tests: Review your notes and other materials from class, then take a break. After a while, come back to these study guides and, without reviewing or looking at your notes
respond as fully as possible in writing
to define each vocabulary word, and answer each short-answer objective. If you don't know an answer, or are unsure, mark it as as a reminder of such to yourself, and then continue without reviewing your notes. When you have worked through the entire study guide, then go back to your notes and check your work. Your next round of studies should focus on what you didn't know or were unsure of. Repeat as time allows!05 Atoms Ions Molecules06 Physical Changes and Solutions07 Chemical Reactions08 Organic Molecules
