Studyguide for Unit 1 

How science is different from other subjects?

What is Science? 

∙ A body of knowledge based on observation, description, experimentation and  experimentation of natural phenomena. 

How is it different from other subjects?

∙ Because science uses to study things other subjects you study other stuff people  do. Science proposes experiments. 

How to design an experiment

∙ Hypothesis (and null hypothesis use of no)­ proposed explanation on an  observation.

∙ Control group –not exposed to treatment.

∙ treatment group­ condition applied to 

∙ Bias­ favorable or unfavorable. For or against idea

∙ placebo­ pill identical to pill that has effect but it does not have an effect ∙ Statistics – use it to determine how likely it is that certain results.  Pseudoscience­ Hypothesis and Theory not supported by trustworthy and methodical  scientific studies

In biology, what causes elements to bond?

Anecdotal evidence­ Is not a link between two things.  

Hypothesis proposed explanation based on observation vs. theory broader in scope. Biological molecules, organic molecules

Types of bonds (ionic, covalent, hydrogen) – Ionic bonds transfer electrons. Covalent  bonds shares electrons. Hydrogens any bond in the presence of hydrogen generally  weaker than the other bonds. 

What causes elements to bond? To form new substance to be more stable.  Be sure that  you can draw an atom if given the atomic number! 


∙ Diagrams H20

∙ Bonding is hydrogen 2 hydrogen atoms to 1 Oxygens

∙ Behavior freezing 0 degrees C and boiling point 100 degrees C

How many types of diabetes are there?

We also discuss several other topics like Organisms made up of membrane-bound units are called what?

∙ Importance for life on earth. 

Macromolecules are lipids, proteins, and nucleic acid. 

Carbs: structure and functions Carbs are energy. Carbo loading is done by runners.  Diets  Low carb fruits and veggies. High carb­ bread

High Fructose Corn Syrup starts out as corn syrup empty calories, no vitamins,  minerals. Unhealthy sweetener found in soft drinks 

Diabetes body inability to regulate blood sugar, insulin located in pancreas used to help regulate blood sugar their two types of diabetes.  

Lipids: form and function (saturated fats are at room temperature such as butter and  cheese) vs. unsaturated (healthier but they are liquid are room temperature.  fatty acids, long term energylong hydrocarbon chain of carbon molecules. Head is  made of glycose and the ends is fatty acids.  Don't forget about the age old question of What was galileos's famous experiment?

 Proteins: Form and function made up amino acids which are building blocks)

Example of Water Molecule 

We also discuss several other topics like In biology, what are the mechanical defenses?
If you want to learn more check out What are the sources of socialization?
We also discuss several other topics like What are vertical asymptotes?
Don't forget about the age old question of Where do chariot races take place?

Example of Carbon Atom 6
