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
