Biology Class PowerPoints

These PowerPoints can be used to help you study or review the class lecture.

  • Macromolecules

  • All organisms are constructed from the same types of macromolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, lipids) and inherit a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) genome from a parent or parents.

  • The structures inside the basic unit of life. What are the parts inside that keep them going?

The process that uses the Sun's light to create most of the chemical energy used by living things.

How is food broken down and used as energy?

This PowerPoint explains how DNA is used as a set of blue prints to make proteins.

The blue prints of life. DNA is the genetic material passed on from generation to generation. DNA

An explanation of how traits are passed from parents to their children.

  • Evolution by Natural Selection

  • In this section we discuss how life has evolved by Natural Selection for millions of years. Natural selection is the process by which the diversity of life has arisen from.
  • Ecology

  • The study of how living things interact with each other. How do populations, species, individuals, live among one another.

What are ways that we have altered the Earth's environment.

  • Digestive and Circulatory System

  • How do theses two systems work together to not only process your food but also deliver and collect materials to be delivered to different parts of you body.
