M: Biology - Tonight I need you to go to the website (scisavvy.weebly.com) make sure you understand everything found there. Once you've done this I want you to create a cover sheet should have "Biology" on it, your name, and then at least four images using a minimum of four colors related to our syllabus. The whole page should be full and should only have pictures related to the subjects we'll study this year so look at that syllabus. Next I need you to make a plan to get a durable 200 page notebook like the example I showed in class. You'll need it by Monday. Lastly, complete the safety contract/survey at the bottom of the Laboratory Safety page. 1) Look over the site, 2) Plan to get a notebook, 3) Create a cover page for your notebook, 4) Sign the online survey/safety contract .
Medical Biology - This first week your homework is going to pretty much be the same as regular biology so just look above.
T: Biology - So today you had a chance to look at the building blocks of life, macromolecules. You came up with a system of classifying them and you started to examine what you know and don't know about atoms and molecules. Tonight I want you to ask yourself, Is what we did "good" science? And what exactly is "good" science? I want you to write your response on the bottom of the note sheet we started today.
Also, did you complete the lab safety form? Did you come up with a plan to get a notebook? Did you create a cover for your notebook? All of this is due by Monday!!!
Medical Biology - As above
W: Biology - So today we solidified what we know as good science. We also collected new information to help us sort our biochemicals. Tonight I want you to write a Tweet (140 characters or less) that sums up what good science is. This should be placed at the bottom of your Four Person Reflection on Science. If you were not in class you can find a copy of the Nature of Science sheet we used below.
Medical Biology - As above. you get your own gig next week!
Th: Biology - Today you were able to turn in your condensed tweet on science. This will give you some more points towards your grade. You then learned a lot about organic molecules and created your final submission on the molecule sorting activity. Tonight What I want you to do is to create a rhyme/riddle/short connecting statement to remember the following four words AND THEIR MEANING: Atom, molecule, bond, and organic. This should be written on the bottom of the note page we did today.
Medical Biology - as above!
F: Biology - Well, today we had to swoop! So this shortened our day, but we still were able to put the final touches on our classifications of organic molecules, and set up our notes for the next activity. This weekend I really just need you to be prepared to construct your notebook. This means that you should make sure your notes are all organized and ready to go. You should have all materials like highlighters, scissors, glue, etc. If you can't get these things, talk to me and I'll see what I can do.
Medical Biology - As above. I want you to know that there has been a delay in some of the materials that we need for our lab so we may have some changes to my original plans for next week. Make sure you have those notebooks ready to go!
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
