although it will certainly help

Lab Safety - Do's and don'ts

Life Processes
The 9 life processes all living things carry out:
-Cellular respiration --> IT'S NOT JUST BREATHING!
-Synthesis and Assimilation
-Regulation aka "respond to stimulus"
-Reproduction --> why is reproduction not essential to the individual?

Homeostasis and what happens when an organism fails to maintain homeostasis

Scientific Method
-know the steps
-designing experimental procedures - sample size/repitition
-graphing data -->line vs. bar, axes, titling, etc.,
-control group and variables -->experimental/independant and dependant

-different types of microscopes = simple, compound, dissecting, electron (scanning and transmission)
-all parts and functions of the compound light microscope
-microscope technique = image flip, when to use coarse adj, etc.
-resolution, magnification, depth of field, field of view

Other tools and techniques
-all tools and techniques from the tools lab conclusion questions (indicators, chromatography, dissecting instruments, etc.)
