FTCE Biology: Origin of Life on Earth - Chapter Summary
Our video lessons on the origin of life on Earth can help you prepare for these types of questions on the FTCE Biology exam. You'll learn about theories on how life began and how cells evolved. By the time you've completed this chapter, you should be able to:
- Describe theories regarding the origin of life
- Delineate the history of life on Earth
- Define evolutionary change
- Identify forms and patterns of evolutionary change
Our instructors make learning enjoyable in these brief lessons. They know what you need to ace questions on the origin of life. Each lesson includes a written transcript with key words and passages marked so they'll stand out as you study.
Objectives of the FTCE Biology: Origin of Life on Earth Chapter
In Florida, passing the FTCE Biology exam is required of anyone seeking certification to teach the subject. The FTCE contains 120 multiple-choice questions, and questions on the origin of life are included in the section on knowledge of evolutionary mechanisms, which comprises 10% of the FTCE exam.
Our lessons and quizzes offer a good way to prepare for these types of FTCE questions. The quizzes allow you to test your knowledge, while giving you practice in taking this type of computer-based, multiple-choice test.
1. The Endosymbiosis Theory: Evolution of Cells
Ever wonder why some cells are very simple and others are complex with countless organelles to remember? We will look at how simple cells evolved to become more complex cells - as well as evidence to support this.
