We are 1 week from the summative unit test in grade 9 science, which means it’s time to start revising. Here’s a list of the major topics you’re likely to find on the test.
- Cell structure and function
- Plant vs animal
- Biological molecules
- Energy flow through ecosystems
- Nutrient cycles within ecosystems
- Photosynthesis and respiration
- Food webs
- Levels of organization
- Trophic levels
There will be several skills assessed on the test: recalling scientific facts (vocabulary and definitions, labeling diagrams), explaining scientific concepts, analyzing results, and evaluating trends in experimental data. Make sure you know this stuff well!
