How They Work
Flashcards help increase your high school biology knowledge thanks to repetition and the ability to confirm concepts you understand and revisit those that require more attention.
- Open a flashcard set for the topic you're studying.
- Identify the image, word, name or event on the flashcard.
- Click the button to flip the card and view the answer.
- Select whether you got it right or missed it to keep track of your progress.
- Click the Next arrow to proceed through the flashcard set.
- Review the cards you missed or shuffle all cards back in and go through them again.
Cell Membrane Functions List & Flashcards
This flashcard set will introduce you to the cell membrane and its structure and function. All cells have cell membranes, which act as the border patrol of a town, only allowing certain things in or out.
Cell Organelles Flashcards
In this flashcard set, you will learn about the parts of a cell that work together like the parts of a factory to help the cell perform the functions necessary for its survival.
Homeostasis Vocabulary Flashcards
Want to know why you shiver when you are cold or start sweating when you are hot? Use this flashcard set to quiz yourself on the basics of homeostasis.
Abiotic Factors of an Ecosystem Flashcards
This flashcard set will help you to understand the difference between abiotic and biotic factors, as well as memorize specific examples of the two types found in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
Cell Biology Flashcards
This flashcard set will overview cell theory and the major components of the cell. It also reviews the characteristics of the two types of cells: prokaryotic and eukaryotic.
Endocrine System Flashcards
In this flashcard set, you'll be able to practice your knowledge of the endocrine system. We'll go over the important endocrine glands, their hormones, and their functions.
Nervous System Flashcards
This set of flashcards will help you understand the different divisions of the human nervous system. Learn about the parts of the nervous system that give you information about your environment, keep your heart beating and allow your eyes to move to read this description right now!
Medical terminology for body parts can be confusing. These flashcards will help you learn and understand some of the major vocabulary terms associated with skeletal muscles and other important parts of the muscular system.
Skeletal System Flashcards
In this flashcard set you'll learn about the different parts of your skeleton, as well as the different structures that make up long bones, or bones in your appendages. We'll also go over the different types of cells within your bones.
