About This Chapter
FTCE Biology: Plant Reproduction & Growth - Chapter Summary
The video lessons in this chapter are taught by expert instructors and cover material you may see on the FTCE Biology 6-12 related to plants life cycles, growth, reproduction and hormones. The lessons in this chapter can prepare you for questions on:
- Alternation of generations
- Reproductions through vegetative propagations and bulbs
- Different types of tropisms
- Effects of day and seasonal cycles on plants
- How hormones effect plant growth and reproduction
Following the video lessons, take quizzes to gauge your mastery of the material and determine what topics you still need to review before taking the FTCE Biology 6-12. You can use the video timelines to go directly to where key topics were discussed, or read over the lesson transcripts to review all the material covered in the video lessons. Our instructors can also answer any questions you may have about this topic.
FTCE Biology 6-12: Plant Reproduction & Growth - Objectives
The state of Florida administers the FTCE Biology 6-12 to certify educators wanting to teach 6th through 12th grade biology. Test takers are given 2.5 hours to complete this computer-based certification exam that has about 120 multiple-choice questions. Eight percent of the 120 questions are on the structural and functional diversity of protists, fungi, and plants, which you can prepare for with the lessons in this chapter.
1. Asexual Plant Reproduction: Vegetative Propagation and Bulbs
Not all plants make attractive flowers in order to reproduce. Some plants will not make seeds and pollen either. These plants have other ways to create new offspring. We will look at a few key methods of vegetative propagation.
2. Tropisms: Phototropic, Geotropic and Thigmotropic Plant Growth
Animals aren't the only things that can respond to the environment. While plants may seem inanimate at times, they, too, can respond to the environment in order to better survive.
3. Plant Hormones: Chemical Control of Growth and Reproduction
We most often think of hormones as things that control our actions and development. However, even plants have these chemicals to help regulate growth and reproduction.
