  • Multicellular organisms have organ systems that enable them to survive and interact within their environment.
  • Solutions are homogeneous.
  • Everyday materials are often mixtures.
  • Multicellular organisms rely on internal systems to survive, reproduce, and interact with their environment.
  • Newton’s three laws of motion describe the relationship between force and motion.
  • The solar system is part of the Milky Way, which is one of billions of galaxies.
  • Earth and its climate have changed over geological time.
