Number of Students Included: 88    

1HS.LS.1.7Determine which measurement would best support a claim about usable energy in cells.
2HS.LS.3.1Describe the chromosomes shown in a karyotype diagram.
3HS.LS.2.6Analyze a food web to identify organisms that compete with an invasive species in an ecosystem.
4HS.LS.1.1Describe how a model of mRNA should be revised to replace nucleotides that were transcribed incorrectly.
5HS.LS.1.4Complete a table to show processes occurring during three phases of the cell cycle.
6HS.LS.2.4Calculate the amount of energy transferred between trophic levels and identify two factors that limit the amount of energy transferred.
7HS.LS.4.4Explain why bacteria are able to adapt to changing environments.
8HS.LS.2.5Determine whether carbon atoms are stored as biomass or released into the environment for three carbon cycle processes.
9HS.LS.1.2Analyze data to explain the movement of gases between the circulatory and respiratory systems.
10HS.LS.3.4Determine that a particular characteristic is a result of both genetics and the environment.
11HS.LS.4.1Explain how modern organisms can inherit genes that no longer function even though their ancestors had a functional version of the gene.
12HS.LS.3.3Use evidence from genetic crosses to support a claim about the inheritance pattern of a particular trait.
13HS.LS.4.5Identify a question that scientists can answer by analyzing the results of a cross-breeding experiment.
14HS.LS.4.2Describe how a particular trait in a population will change over time when a resource in the environment changes.
15HS.LS.3.1Identify the types of cells that combine to produce an offspring and compare the number of chromosomes in a gamete to a body cell.
16HS.LS.1.5Complete a model of photosynthesis, identify the source of energy for photosynthesis, and describe how the products of photosynthesis are used in a human cell.
17HS.LS.1.1Analyze a model to determine the number of DNA nucleotides that code for a chain of amino acids.
18HS.LS.3.1Analyze a diagram to determine whether normal meiosis occurred and use evidence to support the claim.
19HS.LS.1.3Analyze a model of a feedback loop to describe the function of the feedback loop.
20HS.LS.1.6Use models to identify which monomers make up organic macromolecules and describe how these organic macromolecules are used in cells.
21HS.LS.3.3Identify possible parental genotypes for a dominant-recessive genetic condition and a x-linked genetic condition and complete Punnett squares to determine the expected percentages of offspring that will inherit the conditions.
22HS.LS.1.3Describe how the process of diffusion helps to maintain homeostasis in cells.
23HS.LS.3.2Use evidence from a model to support a claim that meiosis increases genetic variability.
24HS.LS.1.2Complete a model to show the functions of three parts of the digestive system.
25HS.LS.3.4Analyze data to determine the effect of an environmental factor on the expression of a gene and describe how a gene is expressed to produce a protein.
26HS.LS.1.2Determine one piece of evidence that would show a kidney is functioning normally.
27HS.LS.3.2Analyze four single-base mutations and their resulting codons to determine which mutation would not result in a phenotypic change.
28HS.LS.4.1Complete a cladogram using differences in amino acid sequences to determine the evolutionary relatedness of several species.
29HS.LS.1.4Determine the percentage of a nitrogenous base in a sample of DNA when given the percentage of another nitrogenous base in the same sample.
30HS.LS.4.1Identify which type of evidence would best support a claim that two organisms are different species.
31HS.LS.2.1Determine which evidence is most useful for identifying a mutualistic relationship between two organisms.
32HS.LS.1.2Complete a model to show a pathway in the nervous system.
33HS.LS.1.7Analyze data to make a claim about the energy use of organisms.
34HS.LS.1.4Identify the cellular process that is responsible for tissue growth and repair.
35HS.LS.2.1Explain how the carrying capacity of a population can be affected by a certain biotic factor.
36HS.LS.2.4Identify the trophic level of an organism in a food web and analyze the food web to determine how a decrease in one population would affect other populations in the ecosystem.
37HS.LS.4.2Describe how genetic diversity of a population changed as the population decreased and explain how a trait can become more common in a population over time.
38HS.LS.1.1Identify a question that could be asked to determine whether a substance is an enzyme.
39HS.LS.3.2Explain the importance of meiosis for a certain type of plant.
40HS.LS.4.4Analyze research data to determine whether an infection is bacterial or viral.
41HS.LS.4.5Determine the best evidence that two populations are geographically isolated from each other and determine what evidence could be used to show that reproductive isolation occurred.
42HS.LS.2.7Explain how an organism can become an invasive species over a large area and explain how damage caused by an invasive species can affect other species in the ecosystem.
