Unit C Key Terms


C31 the range of disease

C31-The Range of Disease

  • Disease-a breakdown in the structure or function of a living thing


C30 it s catching

C30-It’s Catching!

  • Infectious-disease that is caused by a pathogen that invades the body (bacterium, virus, fungus, protist)


C33 from one to another

C33-From One to Another

  • Carrier-a person that carries a disease but never develops symptoms


C33 from one to another1

C33-From One to Another

  • Quarantine-forced isolation of people to prevent the spreading of disease


C33 from one to another2

C33-From One to Another

  • Vector-organism (other than a person) that spreads disease-causing pathogens


C37 the history of the germ theory of disease

C37-The History of the Germ Theory of Disease

  • Germ theory of disease-the idea that diseases are caused by microbes (“germs”)


Introduction to cells

Introduction to Cells

  • Cell- “the building block of life;” the smallest unit of structure and function in an organism


Introduction to cells1

Introduction to Cells

  • Cell theory-statement of scientific knowledge about cells:

    • (1) All living things are made of cells.

    • (2) All cells come from other cells.

    • (3) Cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things.


Cellular organization

Cellular Organization

  • Organism-living thing


C41 a cell so small

C41-A Cell So Small

  • Unicellular-organism made of one cell (examples: bacteria, protists, yeast)


C41 a cell so small1

C41-A Cell So Small

  • Multicellular-organism made of more than one cell (examples: plants, animals)


C35 a license to learn

C35-A License to Learn

  • Magnify-to make an object appear larger


C42 a closer look

C42-A Closer Look

  • Organelle-small structure that does a special job for the cell


C42 a closer look1

C42-A Closer Look

  • Cell membrane-part of ALL cells that separates the cell from the environment and controls what moves in and out of the cell


C42 a closer look2

C42-A Closer Look

  • Cytoplasm-jelly-like material that fills the inside of ALL cells


C42 a closer look3

C42-A Closer Look

  • Nucleus-part of some cells that is the “control center” of the cell and directs cell activities


C44 who s who

C44-Who’s Who?

  • Microbe-microscopic structure that often causes disease (virus, bacterium, protist)


C44 who s who1

C44-Who’s Who?

  • Classify-to put things into groups based on what they have in common


C45 the world of microbes

C45-The World of Microbes

  • Bacteria-microscopic single celled organism without a nucleus


C45 the world of microbes1

C45-The World of Microbes

  • Protist-microscopic single celled organism with a nucleus


C45 the world of microbes2

C45-The World of Microbes

  • Virus-microscopic non-living structure that often causes disease


C47 reducing risk

C47-Reducing Risk

  • Petri dish-equipment used to grow microbes


C49 an ounce of prevention

C49-An Ounce of Prevention

  • Antibiotic-chemical that kills bacteria


C49 an ounce of prevention1

C49-An Ounce of Prevention

  • Vaccination-medicine that can prevent disease by “training” the immune system to fight its cause


C51 the full course

C51-The Full Course

  • Full course-the length of a prescription for an antibiotic


C51 the full course1

C51-The Full Course

  • Infection-when the body is invaded by a pathogen


C51 the full course2

C51-The Full Course

  • Resistant-bacteria that is not easily killed by an antibiotic


C53 modern outbreaks

C53-Modern Outbreaks

  • Emerging disease-a disease that is new in the human population
