Washington EOC Biology Grade 10: Matter & Energy Cycles - Chapter Summary
As you get ready to take the Washington EOC Biology Grade 10 test, it's good to feel confident that you know what to expect on the day of the exam. This chapter can help boost your confidence by providing access to exam topics through matter and energy cycles lessons. Once you've reviewed the lessons, you will be ready for the following:
- Describing the diagram, process and meaning of the carbon cycle
- Discussing the carbon cycle and carbon storage
- Explaining how matter cycling can affect environmental health
- Sharing the meaning, facts and steps of the nitrogen cycle
- Identifying forms of matter and energy changes in ecosystems
Tailor the lessons to match your study needs and habits by reviewing them in the sequence and at the frequency you choose. Feel free to print text lessons and transcripts to take additional notes or highlight key points. If you can't access the lessons from a computer, review them from your smartphone or tablet. When ready to assess your comprehension of matter and energy cycles, take short quizzes and a chapter exam.
1. What Is the Carbon Cycle? - Diagram, Process & Definition
The carbon cycle is the process by which carbon moves from the atmosphere into the Earth and its organisms and then back again. Gain a deeper understanding of how the carbon cycle works in this lesson.
2. The Carbon Cycle and Long-Term Carbon Storage
All living organisms have a role in the carbon cycle. Do you know you understand how humans, animals and plants use carbon? This lesson will introduce you to the carbon cycle and explain how it functions on a global scale.
3. How Matter Cycling Can Impact Environmental Health
What is matter cycling? Learn what the term means, how humans can cause matter to cycle, and how it can have positive or negative effects on the health of an ecosystem.
4. The Nitrogen Cycle: Definition, Facts & Steps
Oh the places we'll go on our nitrogen cycle tour! Nitrogen is an element that cycles through you, me, plants, and other organisms. This lesson will not only follow nitrogen on this cycle, but will also share some nitrogen facts!
5. Types of Matter & Energy Changes in an Ecosystem
Ecosystems are a constant flow of matter and energy from one place to another. In this lesson, we will discuss some of the important energy and matter cycles that take place within and between ecosystems.
