Intro to Cells

Scientific Theory An explanation based on evidence that has been repeatedly tested in confirmed by many scientist and explains WHY something works.
Scientific Theory Explains WHY something works or happens in science.
Scientific Law A statement based on repeated scientific observations that describes HOW something works or happens.
Scientific Law Explains HOW something works or happens in science.
Theory in science an explanation based on evidence
Theory in science is reviewed by many scientist and verified
Theory in science a majority of scientists agree with it
Theory in everyday life is a point of view or opinion
Theory in every day life can vary among cultures
Theory in every day life Is a guess or prediction
Law in science is Determined by nature
Law in science Describes the behavior of the natural world
Law in science always true under set condition
Law in every day life determined by governments
Law in every day life controls the behavior of citizens
Law in every day life can be broken
law in every day life only true in some locations
Cell theory All living things are made of cells, cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things, living cells come only from other living cells.
Germ Theory many diseases are caused by microorganisms, and that microorganisms grow by reproduction, rather than appearing out of nothing.
Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection Organisms that are better adapted to their environment survive to reproduce and pass on their traits to their babies. Organisms that cannot adapt will not survive to have babies. "The Survival of the Fittest."
Law of conservation of mass Mass cannot be created or destroyed
Law of conservation of energy Energy cannot be created or destroyed
Atom The smallest particle of matter
Atoms Organized on the periodic table of elements according to their sizes.
Atoms Make up everything
Atoms Non living particles of matter
Atoms Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Hydrogen are a few examples that can be found in living things
Molecule Formed from the combination of two or more atoms
H2O Water molecule (formed from two atoms of Hydrogen and one atom of Oxygen)
C6H12O6 Glucose molecule (formed from 6 Carbon atoms, 12, Hydrogen atoms and 6 Oxygen atoms)
Macromolecule Long chains of molecules
Macromolecule DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is an example of this
Organelles Specialized structures within a cell
Organelles Complex macromolecules bound together to perform a specific function
Molecules Non living combinations of two or more atoms.
Macromolecules Non living larger versions of molecules
Organelles Nonliving structures found inside cells
Organelles Mitochondria and Chloroplasts are examples
Cell The smallest functional unit of living things
Cell Made of many different types of molecules, macromolecules and organelles working together.
Cells skin, blood, hair... all parts of your body are made of these.
Cells The bark, leaves and flowers of trees are all made of these.
Cells Any part of any living (or once living) thing is made of these.
Cells Make up all living things
Tissue A group of cells working together
Connective Tissue made of a group of cells working together that connects, supports, binds or separates other tissues or organs in living things.
Epithelial Tissue made of a group of cells working together that line the cavities and surfaces of blood vessels and organs throughout the body of living things
Muscle Tissue made of a group of cells working together that assist the bodies of living things in movement.
Nervous Tissue made of a group of cells working together that regulate and controls bodily functions and activity in living things.
organ a group of tissues working together in living things.
Organs eyes, brain, heart, lungs, & intestines are all examples of this.
Plant Tissues Plants also have these structures, known as Xylem and Phloem.
Plant Organs Plants also have these structures, leaves and flowers are two examples.
Organ system A group of organs working together
Organ system the reproductive system, digestive system, nervous system are all examples of this.
Plant Organ systems The roots of a plant and the shoots(leaves, stems and branches) of a plant are examples of this.
Organism Organ systems all working together in an individual animal or plant
Organism All plants and animals are examples of this level of organization.
