Curricular Goals and Competencies

  • Curricular Goal – 3: Explores the structure and function of the living world at the cellular level.
  • Competency - 3.3 : Describes mechanisms of heredity (in terms of DNA, genes, chromosomes) and variation (as change in the sequence of DNA, Mendel performed hybridization experiments to bring out new varieties of plants).
  • Curricular Goal – 4: Explore interconnectedness between organisms and their environment through reproduction.
  • Competency - 4.4 : Analyses patterns of inheritance of traits in terms of Mendel’s laws and its consequences at population level. (Using models and/ or simulations).
  • Competency - 4.5 : Analyses evidences of biological evolution demonstrating the consequences of the process of natural selection in terms of changes- in allele frequency in population, structure, and function of organisms.
  • Curricular Goal – 5: Draws linkages between scientific knowledge and knowledge across other curricular areas.
  • Competency - 5.1 : Explores how literature and the arts have influenced science.
  • Competency -5.3 : Applies scientific principles to explain phenomena in other subjects like mathematical and statistical knowledge to understand the ratios of monohybrid and di hybrid cross and the probability of finding the recombinant traits in next generation.
  • Curricular Goal - 7: Develops awareness of the most current discoveries, ideas and frontiers in all areas of scientific knowledge in order to appreciate that science is ever evolving, and that there are still many unanswered questions.
  • Competency – 7.1: States concepts that represent the most current understanding of the matter being Studied- using the knowledge obtained from stem cell research to solve many genetic related health complications.
  • Curricular Goal - 8: Explores the nature of science by doing science.
  • Competency - 8.2 : Designs and implements a plan for scientific inquiry (formulates hypotheses, makes predictions, identified variables, accurately uses scientific instruments, represents data- primary and secondary- in multiple modes, draws inferences based on data and understanding of scientific concepts theories, laws, and principles of monohybrid and di hybrid cross, law of dominance, law of segregation, law of independent assortment, homologous and analogous organs etc.
