FTCE Biology: Requirements of Biological Systems - Chapter Summary
These video lessons and the accompanying quizzes help you review the requirements of biological systems in areas including reproduction and growth. You can use this information to prepare for these types of questions on the FTCE Biology exam. After viewing these lessons, you should be ready to:
- Describe the requirements that living systems have for free energy and matter
- Explain the environmental requirements for growth and reproduction
- Detail requirements for regulating dynamic homeostasis
- Name ways to use feedback systems to regulate growth and reproduction
These lessons are taught by professional instructors who are experts in the field. They know how to make learning enjoyable through dynamic animations and illustrations while teaching you what you need in order to be ready for the FTCE Biology exam questions on this topic. A chapter exam helps ensure you understand these topics before you take the FTCE Biology exam.
Objectives of the FTCE Biology: Requirements of Biological Systems Chapter
In Florida, aspiring teachers who want certification to teach biology to 6th-12th graders must pass the FTCE Biology 6-12 test. Questions regarding requirements of biological systems are in the section on knowledge of structural and functional diversity of animals. This section comprises 13% of the 120-question FTCE exam.
All the questions on the FTCE Biology exam are multiple-choice. Question types include commands, scenarios, complete the sentence and direct question. You will be given four possible answers. Our quizzes at the end of each lesson allow you to assess your knowledge of the subject and practice taking this type of exam.
1. Living Systems Requirement for Free Energy and Matter
Free energy and matter are required by all living things in order to grow, reproduce, and maintain biological processes. Additionally, free energy and matter must also be recycled through the environment in order to remove dead material and allow for new growth.
2. The Environmental Requirements for Growth, Reproduction & Dynamic Homeostasis
Cells need to maintain internal environments that are different from their external environments in order to grow and reproduce. In this video lesson, you will understand some ways that cells can control their internal conditions to ensure proper biological functioning.
3. Using Feedback Systems to Regulate Growth, Reproduction & Dynamic Homeostasis
In order to maintain specific internal conditions, organisms use feedback mechanisms. Feedback is essential to the regulation of internal environments, which allows for proper biological functioning.
