What YOU need to be able to do in order to do well on the test:
1. Define the following words: Biology, organism, cell, unicellular, multicellular, metabolism, homeostasis, growth, reproduction,
    evolution, natural selection, environment, ecosystem, photosynthesis, autotrophs, heterotrophs, SI system, magnification,
    resolution, scientific method, hypothesis, experiment, control groups, experimental group, independent variable, dependent
    variable, theory
2. Identify and explain the use of common lab equipment such as beakers, test tubes, etc. (refer to your notesheet on this!).
3. Identify major fields of biology: Anatomy, biochemistry, botany, ecology, marine biology, microbiology, zoology
4. List and explain the 6 common characteristics/criteria for living things.
5. Identify where most of the energy on Earth originates.
6. Compare and contrast asexual and sexual reproduction.
7. List (in order) and explain the steps of the scientific method.
8. Identify parts of an experiment, such as the control group, experimental group, independent variable, and dependent variable.
9. Identify and use appropriate SI units for measuring length, volume, mass, and temperature.
10. List and describe the uses of light and electron microscopes.
