Why is oxygen important for cellular respiration (i.e., what does the oxygen do?).

What happens when there is not enough oxygen present in a cell.

Chapter Questions 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (by immediate in Q#4, the author is asking when is ATP first synthesized i.e., which reaction first produces ATP).

What is an autotroph?

What is Heterotroph?

What is mesophyll?

What is stomata

What is stroma

What is thylakoids?

What is grana?

7.4 gives the reaction equation of photosynthesis. Realize this is the opposite of cellular respiration.

What is the inputs/outputs and where in the chloroplast each occurs (thylakoids and stroma)?

Understand that light behaves as discrete particles called photons.

Understand what happens, how APT is synthesized, and where CO2 is attached together to form G3P and ultimately Glucose.

Know the cell cycle, the stages of interphase (G1, S, G2) and Mitosis.

Remember that mitosis is NOT part of interphase.

8.5 describes the stages of Mitosis – know what happens at each stage (I will not ask you to draw each stage, but it’s a good idea to be able to do so to test your knowledge)

Meiosis is the production of Gametes (sperm and ovum). Where does it occur?How many daughter cells are produced? How many chromosomes are in each daughter cell?

Know the similarities and differences between Mitosis and Meiosis.

Who was Mendel and what did he study?

Understand how the law of segregation relates to Meiosis and in how the two versions (alleles) of a gene are separated during gamete formation.

Understand how to construct a Punnett Square for both a monohybrid cross and dihybrid cross

Know: Homozygous dominate, homozygous recessive, and heterozygote.

What is a genotype?

What is phenotype?

What is Homologus chromosome?

What is Tetrad?

What are linked genes?

What is Incomplete Dominance?

What is co-dominance?

What is pleiotropy?

What is polygenetic traits?

How can we determine the relative distance between two linked genes on a chromosome using the rate of crossing over?

Understand Sex-linked genes.
