Science Inquiry and Application
Cycles of Matter and Flow of Energy
Matter is transferred continuously between one organism to another and between organisms and their physical environments.
Ohio Science Academic Content Standards (2002)
Explain how energy entering the ecosystems as sunlight supports the life of organisms through photosynthesis and the transfer of energy through the interactions of organisms and the environment.
Explain the characteristics of life as indicated by cellular processes and describe the process of cell division and development.
Explain the flow of energy and the cycling of matter through biological and ecological systems (cellular, organismal and ecological).
Grade Level Indicators (Grade 7)
Explain that photosynthetic cells convert solar energy into chemical energy that is used to carry on life functions or is transferred to consumers and used to carry on their life functions.
Grade Level Indicators (Grade 10)
Describe how cells and organisms acquire and release energy (photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, cellular respiration and fermentation).
