Chemistry Of Life Warm Up 3

Welcome to the Electronic Learning Environment for Life Science (biology). The roles of biology and chemistry are becoming very evident of the relationship between the two fields. Chemical reactions of all living things take place in the aqueous environment of the cell. Water has several unique properties that make it one of the most important compounds found in living organisms. This warm up allows you an unlimited number of attempts to increase your test-taking and learning skills in advanced biology. As a bonus, each attempt randomly generates new questions and answers.
