• Living things have features that help them survive.
• For example,hummingbirds
can beat their wings up to
80 times per second, allowing
them to hover and change
direction rapidly.
• All living things have needs that
must be met if they are to survive.
See pages 8 - 9

Compound Light Microscope
• The compound light microscope has
two sets of lenses that magnify an image.
• Each of the objective lenses has a
different magnification power.
 Low power = 4x objective
 Med power = 10x objective
 High power = 40x objective
• Multiply the objective by the
eyepiece for total magnification.
 Example: High Power = 40 x 10 = 400 x
Do you know all the compound microscope parts?

Resolving Power
• The ability to distinguish between two dots or objects
that are very close together is called resolving power.
• The human eye has a certain resolving power. You can
see the individual dots in diagrams A, B and C. The
human eye does not have the resolving power to see
the dots in diagram D.
Can you think of ways to increase resolving power?

The Functions of Cell Organelles
• The cell membrane protects the cell and regulates the movement
of particles in and out of the cell.
• Cytoplasm, the jelly-like substance within the cell, contains
organelles, water, and other life supporting materials.
• The nucleus:
 controls all the activities within the cell.
 contains deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
See page 25
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Energy in the Cell
• The mitochondria are the organelles that produce
energy in the cell.

throughout the room is an example of diffusion.
The diffusion
of ink in water.
See pages 40 - 41
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Diffusion and the Cell Membrane
• The cell membrane is a selectively permeable membrane.
 This means that it has many small openings that let some substances
pass through it but not others.
• One way that substances can move through the cell membrane is
by diffusion.
• When the concentration on both sides of the membrane is the
same, it is called equilibrium.
See page 42
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
• Osmosis is the diffusion
of water through a
selectively permeable
• Osmosis occurs when
water particles move
from a higher
concentration to a
lower concentration.

The Four Stages of Digestion
The process in which food is broken
down, nutrients are absorbed, and
wastes eliminated is called digestion
and occurs in the digestive system.
The fours stages of digestion are:
See page 70
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 1: Ingesting
Ingesting, or ingestion, means
to bring food into the body. This
is the starting point of the
digestive process.
See page 71
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 2: Digesting
The Mouth
Mechanical digestion occurs when
your teeth and tongue break food
into small enough pieces to swallow.
Each small piece of food is called
Chemical digestion occurs when
saliva begins to break down the
An enzyme in your saliva begins to
break down simple and complex
See page 71
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 2: Digesting
The Esophagus
When you swallow, your food
enters the esophagus.
The esophagus is a long
muscular tube that carries
food to your stomach.
The bolus is pushed through
the esophagus in a process
called peristalsis.
See page 72
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 2: Digesting
The Stomach
Inside the stomach is gastric
juice, which is very acidic.
The stomach walls are lined with
mucus to protect the tissue from
being damaged by the acid.
An enzyme called pepsin, present
in gastric juice, breaks down
The bolus that enters your
stomach breaks down into a liquid
called chyme.
See page 73
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 2: Digesting
The Small Intestine
The first metre of the small
intestine is called the
The pancreas adds enzymes
that help break down the
carbohydrates, protein, and fat
in the chyme.
The liver produces bile which is
stored in the gall bladder.
Bile breaks the globs of fat into
smaller droplets.
See page 74
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 3: Absorbing
The Small and Large Intestine
Absorption is the process in
which nutrients and water are
absorbed by the small and
large intestine.
The small intestine is covered
with villi to help increase the
rate at which nutrients are
The large intestine absorbs
water and some minerals.
See page 75
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Stage 4: Eliminating
Any solid material, undigested by
the end of the large intestine is
called feces.
Feces are stored in the rectum
until they are eliminated through
the anus.
Liquid and gas wastes are
removed by your excretory

2.3 The Circulatory and Respiratory Systems
• The circulatory system consists of the
heart, arteries, capillaries, and veins.
• Your heart is a pump that pushes
approximately 4 L of blood through your
body every minute.
• The main purpose of the respiratory
system is to exchange gases.
• The main organ of the respiratory system
are the lungs.
See pages 82 - 83
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Taking a Closer Look at the Heart
• The heart pumps blood throughout
the body.
• The heart has four chambers:
 Left atrium
 Blood arrives from your lungs
 Right atrium
 Blood arrives from your body
 Left ventricle
 Pumps blood to your body
 Right ventricle
 Pumps blood to your lungs
• Between each of these chambers is
a valve.
See page 84
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
The Circulatory System
• The circulatory system moves blood throughout the body.
• There are three types of blood vessels:
 Arteries
 Carry oxygenated blood away from your heart
 Capillaries are tiny blood vessels
 Responsible for transfer of
oxygen and nutrients into the body
cells and collecting waste
from the cells.
 Veins
 Blood containing waste
products returning to the heart.
See pages 85 - 86

• Red blood cells carry oxygen from the
lungs to the cells.
• White blood cells fight infection.
• Platelets are important for clotting
See pages 88 -89
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
The Respiratory System
• The respiratory system moves
oxygen into your body and carbon
dioxide out of your body.
• When you inhale, air is filtered by
tiny hairs called cilia.
• Air passes through your larynx and
continues down your trachea
towards your lungs.
• At the base of the trachea are two
tubes called bronchi.
• Bronchi branch into smaller air
tubes called bronchioles.
See page 90
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Gas Exchange in the Alveoli
• There are millions of alveoli at the
ends of the bronchioles, and this
is where gas exchange takes
• Oxygen and carbon dioxide move
back and forth between the alveoli
and the surrounding blood
See page 91
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
• Smoking may cause both respiratory disease and heart disease.
• Respiratory diseases could include emphysema and lung cancer.
 Emphysema causes the alveoli walls to lose their elasticity. This may
make breathing very difficult.
• Smoking also destroys the cilia lining your respiratory system.

stops most pathogens from entering
the body.
• The sweat and oils on skin are slightly
• Gastric juices in your stomach can
destroy some pathogens.
• Mucus and cilia in your nose prevent
pathogens from entering your
respiratory system.

Acquired Immune Response
• Highly specific attack on a specific
pathogen or antigen.
 An antigen is a non-living particle or
substance that body cannot recognize.
• All acquired immune responses help
give you active immunity.
 This means your body remembers how to
fight a pathogen that has infected it before.
 This is why you get diseases such as
chicken pox only once.

Acquired Immune Response
B cells in action
• First process in the acquired immune response:
 B cells recognize antigens present in the body.
 Produce particles, called antibodies, used to fight antigens.
See page 104
(c) McGraw Hill Ryerson 2007
Acquired Immune Response
T cells in action
• Second process in the acquired
immune response:
• Two types of T cells:
 Helper T cells
 Recognize antigen or pathogen
and activate B cells
 Killer T cells
 Recognize and destroy antigen or
pathogen without B cells.
See page 104

3.2 Factors Affecting the Immune System
• Vaccines are weakened versions of a
disease pathogen that are given to
people to protect them from getting
the disease later.
• Vaccines allow your body to create
antibodies against the disease.
• Boosters are needed for some
vaccines to extend the immune
system’s memory.
