Ch 27: Plant Biology & Structure: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Plant Biology and Structure chapter of this Middle School Life Science Help and Review course is the simplest way to master an understanding of plant biology and structure. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of plant biology and structure.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering middle school life science material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn middle school life science. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding pollination or other topics related to plant biology and structure
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about plant biology and structure
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the Plant Biology and Structure chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Plant Biology and Structure chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any plant biology or structure question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

1. Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

Plants may not seem like the most interesting things around, but they are definitely useful. In this lesson, we will explore the basic classification of plants and the unique characteristics of each group.

Structure of Leaves: The Epidermis, Palisade and Spongy Layers

2. Structure of Leaves: The Epidermis, Palisade and Spongy Layers

Leaves may look pretty in the fall when they are changing colors, but they also provide many necessary functions for plants. In this lesson, we will explore the structures and functions of leaves.

Nitrogen Fixation: Significance to Plants and Humans

3. Nitrogen Fixation: Significance to Plants and Humans

Almost 80% of our atmosphere is nitrogen, but we can't use it. We will look at how this unusable nitrogen is converted into a form we can use and why nitrogen is important to plants and humans.

Flowers: Structure and Function of Male & Female Components

4. Flowers: Structure and Function of Male & Female Components

In this lesson, we'll look at the parts of a flower and learn their functions. These natural beauties provide indispensable services to the plants they adorn.

Methods of Pollination and Flower-Pollinator Relationships

5. Methods of Pollination and Flower-Pollinator Relationships

Ever wonder why bees are attracted to specific flowers? We will look at why certain animals are drawn to certain plants and other methods of pollination in this lesson.

Plant Cell Wall: Function, Structure & Composition

6. Plant Cell Wall: Function, Structure & Composition

All cells have a cell membrane on the outside of them that acts like a skin. Plant cells go one step further and have a cell wall - a protective outside that provides support and other functions.

Complete Flowers: Examples, Definition & Structure

7. Complete Flowers: Examples, Definition & Structure

Biologically speaking, all flowers are not considered complete. In this lesson, we will learn what makes a flower complete and examine the structure of complete flowers. We will also view examples of commonly found complete flowers.

Venus Flytrap: Classification & Anatomy

8. Venus Flytrap: Classification & Anatomy

In this lesson you will learn the scientific classification of a Venus flytrap. In addition, you'll look at the anatomy of both the main plant and the traps themselves.

Venus Flytrap: Habitat, Diet & Adaptations

9. Venus Flytrap: Habitat, Diet & Adaptations

Venus flytraps have a unique diet, especially for a plant, and some interesting adaptations that help them survive in their habitat. They live within a very limited range.

Ascomycota Reproduction: Ascus & Ascospore

10. Ascomycota Reproduction: Ascus & Ascospore

Have you ever thought about how yeast reproduces? That's what you'll learn in this lesson! We will look at the reproduction of Ascomycota, a group of fungi that includes yeast.

Ascomycota: Characteristics & Structure

11. Ascomycota: Characteristics & Structure

Ascomycota isn't a household name, but I bet you've heard of one or two species within this group. This lesson will explore the characteristics and structure of this enormous group of fungi, so you can leave an Ascomycota expert.

Ascomycota: Habitat & Facts

12. Ascomycota: Habitat & Facts

In this lesson, we'll look at a group of fungi with more than 30,000 members: ascomycota. You'll learn about their habitat, as well as some interesting facts regarding their history and growth.

The Economic Importance of Ascomycota

13. The Economic Importance of Ascomycota

In this lesson we'll take a look at the economic importance of Ascomycota fungi. You'll see how we use them in food and medicine, and learn about some of their negative economic impacts.

Spherical Symmetry: Definition, Biology & Animals

14. Spherical Symmetry: Definition, Biology & Animals

Only two types of organisms exhibit spherical symmetry. Read this lesson to learn about biological symmetry and what makes spherical symmetry rare and unique.

Biradial Symmetry: Definition, Advantages & Examples

15. Biradial Symmetry: Definition, Advantages & Examples

You may feel like you understand symmetry in biology, but I am going to throw a wrench into your understanding with biradial symmetry. This lesson will introduce this term and will discuss how it fits in with bilateral and radial symmetry.
