Integrated Science 1
The periodicity of elements is a method of organizing the components of matter.
The characteristics of matter are defined by composition and structure.
Movement of tectonic plates and actions at plate boundaries are determined by and can be characterized by wave phenomena.
The characteristics of energy transmission explain electricity, matnetism and wave phenomena.
Geochemical Earth systems discussed in Semester I form the basis of the abiotic factors affecting the biosphere.
Biogeochemical cycles impact life on Earth.
IIA Biogeochemical cycles support biotic system.
Acid rain and pollution provide examples of human impact on all biogeochemical cycles and the subsequent effects on ecosystem stability.
The biotic systems of Earth exist in a dynamic equilibrium.
