Question:

Explain in your own words what a chord is and how to know which notes to play in a chord.

Answer:

A chord consists of different notes or pitches that are played together at the same time. A simple chord can have 3 notes that are played together. When given the name of a chord, we can count the 1st, 3rd and 5th notes starting from the first note, which is always the name of the chord - to get the specific notes to play. Think of all the keys (black and white) on a piano - each key is a note. Really there are just a few notes and they are repeating over and over. We use letters to name each key. All the letters we use for notes are A,B,C,D,E,F,G. Then they just repeat, ABCDEFG ABCDEFG ABCDEFG for every key on a piano. So - for a C major chord, the name of the chord is C, so we would play the first note C, the third note E, and the Fifth note G. G, E and G make up a C chord. For a G major chord, since the name of the chord is G, the first note would be G, the third note would be B, and the fifth note would be D.

Question:

Biology is the study of life. We use certain characteristics to decide what things are living (organisms) or nonliving. List at least two and explain why something must have all of these characteristics and not just some of them.

Answer:

One of the characteristics of life is that it has to get and use materials and energy. Another is that it must be able to grow. Some objects that are nonliving might be able to do one of these things, but not the other. We could say that a cell phone gets and uses energy, because we plug it in and charge the battery. If we only needed to use that ONE characteristic, then we would have to say a cell phone is alive! However, since a cell phone is NOT able to grow, then it doesn't meet the definition of life, and is classified nonliving. From this example we can see how important it is that we must use ALL the characteristics of life when deciding to classify things as living.

Answer:

The six levels we can study the body at are: 1. Chemical Level 2. Cell Level 3. Tissue Level 4. Organ Level 5. Organ System Level 6. Organism Level At the organism level - an organism just means something that is living as a whole. This means at the organism level, we are looking at a living whole thing, ranging from one whole cell, to a bacteria with more cells, all the way to a human with LOTS of cells. At the organ system level - this means any group of organs that function TOGETHER to do a specific job. For example, the digestive organ system (or just digestive system) is a group of organs that helps us digest our food. These organs include the small and large intestines, the stomach, appendix and several others.
