- Biology 101, 201, 202: Helpful Acronyms to KnowThese are some acronyms that summarize the properties of life and our chemical make-up. There are seven main qualities of life, and all seven must be displayed, that can help classify organisms as “living”.
- Biology 101, 201, 202: The CyclesThere are three cycles that influence living organisms and the environment that surrounds them. The carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle, and phosphorus cycle all play a big role in taking a chemical and converting it into a usable form that organisms can receive and use/transfer the energy or utilize as fuel or food.
- Biology 101, 201, 202: The Cell CycleThe stages of the cell cycle contain growth, DNA synthesis, and mitosis and are described in order. Since there are different types of cells, a cell can go through with mitosis or meiosis, and the differences/similarities are discussed what separates the two different cell divisions.
- Biology 101, 201, 202: Organelles and FunctionsEukaryotic and prokaryotic cells share similarities as well as differences. The organelles that make up these cells is what serves as the differences from appearances to their overall functions.
