The Standards

High School

From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

Students who demonstrate understanding can:



Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed resulting in a net transfer of energy. HS-LS1-7

Clarification Statement and Assessment Boundary

Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of cellular respiration
