Matter and Energy in Systems

In this module, students who demonstrate understanding of the matter in organisms and ecosystems can

  • Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.
  • Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for how carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen from sugar molecules may combine with other elements such as nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorous to form amino acids and carbon-based molecules.
  • 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 the bonds in new compounds are formed resulting in a net transfer of energy.
  • Construct and revised an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in ecosystems.
  • Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
  • Develop a model to illustrate the role of various processes in the cycling of carbon among the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere.

License Info

  • Each Learner license includes 1 student’s desk and 1 teacher’s desk
  • Each Classroom license includes 1 teacher’s desk and 10 student’s desks
  • The Student’s Desk contains all Learning Modules assigned to students by the teacher. STEM guides, Poly & Mer, step students through each module by offering clues and information to help students complete the hands-on activities, assessments, and experiments in the module. Each module comes with resources which include video, audio, MS Office documents, .pdf, links to websites, and more. Students can interact and collaborate on projects using the private chat and email system, as well as ask teachers questions at any time, all within a closed social network.
  • The Teacher’s Desk contains classroom management tools for mastery-based learning, the communication systems described in the student’s desk, real-time teacher commenting on work submitted for each module step and grading, real-time metrics-based monitoring of student progress, a grade book, and more.
