M: Biology - Today we recapped a lot of our info from last year/first semester. We looked at the 8 big ideas and went over the few of the less understood concepts from the final. We also established new lab groups and did a check on our notebooks to make sure we have all of the tools we need to be successful. Tonight you should make sure everything is in order and that you replace any missing pieces to your notebook. The last thing you need to do is to address our next "Big Idea," How are new cells created? You can write down your idea on the top right page of a new entry that uses this question as it's title. You may need to look stuff up, but just reference your source in your notes if that's the case. Oh, and do NOT use more than the upper half of the right page if you have a lot to say.
Medical Biology - Today we recapped a lot of our info from last year/first semester. We looked at those 8 big ideas and went over a few of the less understood concepts from the final. We also established new lab groups and did a check on our notebooks to make sure we have all of the tools we need to be successful. Tonight you should make sure everything is in order and that you replace any missing pieces to your notebook. Also be sure that you have at least 50 more clear entries to work with at A MINIMUM!
T: Biology - Today we started in our our first big essential question, "How/why are cells created" You watched the following video in an attempt to understand what was going on in these cells, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L61Gp_d7evo , but it's clear that there are some things that we still don't know about cells. So tonight, using the next entry or two, use the following website to draw a cell picture on the left, and on the right I want you to compile a listing of all of the parts from http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model_js.htm and what they do in the cell. Remember that you are only responsible for a few of the parts in this big list.
Medical Biology - So today you watch a video on cells doing "something" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L61Gp_d7evo ). You made a claim, cited evidence, and stated your reasoning, but it's clear there's still more that we don't know. Tonight I need you to make alist of the parts of a cell on the right side of a new entry and then draw a cell using color coding from this website http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model_js.htm As you work your way through this material, be sure to be thinking about what each of these parts might do in relation to your claim from today.
W: Biology - Today we looked at the parts of a cell that are involved in cellular reproduction, or mitosis. These new parts play a role, but it's really the process that they all participate in which is most important. Today you looked at this "Dance" called mitosis and you not only wrote about the process on the right hand side of a new entry, but you also drew what happens in each stage on the left side of the entry using this website: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/body/how-cells-divide.html Tonight I need you to finish whatever you didn't complete in class.
Medical Biology - Today we isolated the pieces of a cell that participate in the rcreation of new cells, but the process of mitosis is the key to what these parts do. Using this website: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/body/how-cells-divide.html you then created a description of each step on the right side of a new entry and then on the left you created drawings to help you understand it.
Th: Biology - So today was a shorty so we only focused on making sure that you have all of the notes you need to score well tomorrow. Then we looked back at the original video from Tuesday and you got to discuss it with your lab partners. Finally you watched a video on what cancer is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeUANxFVXKc. Tomorrow you will come to class ready to explain what this weeks video is all about.
Medical Biology - Today you made sure you have everything you need for tomorrow's test. You also watched the video one more time and asked me any last minute questions. On the additional entry we set up yesterday there were four concepts that you and your partners should have divided up, they were: stem cells, cancer, CRISPR9, and ethics. Your job is to find out what these concepts have to do with cells and cell replication. Please use APA format on your citation.
F: Biology - WHoa! You have no homework! You've worked hard today on your cell division assessment and watched a fascinating video on the anti-angiogenic foods (https://www.ted.com/talks/william_li) Maybe you should think about this and your diet. You don't need to write anything though. Have a good weekend.
Medical Biology - Today you did your initial assessment on cellular division/mitosis, there's quite a bit more of that coming. You then watched a great video on anti-angiogenic foods with the TED talk from Dr. Li https://www.ted.com/talks/william_li. On the right side of the entry we started answering What does anti-angiogenic mean? and what does metastasis mean? You then listed the top foods, and then described how these foods help prevent cancer? On the left side on the top half I want you to create a anti-angiogenic meal that you would actually eat, and then at the bottom of the left side I want you to quickly report on one of the other follow up "deeper discussion" and then connect it to this talk.
