Learning Standards

Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks: Biology

 

8.MS-LS1-7. Use informational text to describe that food molecules, including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, are broken down and rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support cell growth and/or release of energy.

HS-LS1-7. Use a model to illustrate that aerobic cellular respiration is a chemical process
whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and new
bonds form, resulting in new compounds and a net transfer of energy.
Clarification Statements:
• Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of aerobic cellular respiration.
• Examples of models could include diagrams, chemical equations, and conceptual models.
• The model should include the role of ATP for energy transfer in this process.
• Food molecules include sugars (carbohydrates), fats (lipids), and proteins.
State Assessment Boundary:
• Identification of the steps or specific processes involved in cellular respiration is not expected in state assessment
