M: Biology - So today you got to see an Unbe-Leaf-able Demonstration using lights, water, baking soda, and spinach discs. While watching this you recorded the data (if you're out today, sorry). Tonight I am asking you to make a graph on a separate sheet of paper of one of the sets of data (control, light, and light and baking soda). You should have decided in your group who is doing which. This should have time on the X-axis and the total number of discs floating up on the y-axis. Be prepared to discuss it tomorrow. Should the graph have a title? use color? labels? Can you use google sheets? YES, YES, YES, YES, and YES!
Medical Biology - You were able to see an unbe-leaf-able demonstration today. Tonight I want you to take your three data sets and create a colorful graph, probably using google sheets, to show the three data sets on one graph. Don't forget titles, labels, and color. If you were out today, you'll have to getthe data from someone who was in class since I can't post that quantity of data.
T: Biology - Today you learned about photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Two amazingly important functions that happen inside cells. Tonight I want you to use the information that you received today to creata top hat diagram that compares and contrasts these processes. Once you have placed a minimum of 3 points in each of the three sections of the top hat diagram, I want you do draw (no words) an image or symbol that is represented by that section. You should have a drawing next to photosynthesis, next to cellular respiration, and next to what they have in common.
Medical Biology - Today you recieved instruction on two of the must fundamental functions that can happen inside of a cell. You also wrote an analogy for cellular respiration and photosynthesis, how they are like a relationship. Tonight I want you to go to the left hand side and identify a medical condition caused by a malfunctioning of cellular respiration. Identify the condition, the causes, the possible treatments (if any), and include an illustration that shows the problem. You must identify TWO!
W: Biology - So today you reinforced what we started yesterday by really looking at the recipricol nature of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. We did this by using the graphic organizer that can be found below (On the right). This should be placed on the right hand side of a new entry when you are finished, if you haven't already. On the left hand side you should complete the questions that go along with this organizer (The file is below but you'll need to scroll through the document to pages 249-250 for your questions). Lastly, remember that on Friday you will be asked to explain the phenomenon from Monday so start to think about how, when the leaves had their gasses sucked out of them they replenished it and began to float again. Here's a good website that I found to review both processes: http://sepuplhs.org/high/sgi/teachers/photosynthesis2_sim.html
Medical Biology - Today was just as described above, but tonight I don't just want you to complete the study questions and think about the Monday phenomenon. Tonight, on a new entry, I would like you to read the following short article https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/04/090408074426.htm and on the right hand side of this entry complete a "Get Curious and Ask Question" on it. On the left side of your entry I want you complete a Haiku (look in your notebook reference sheets) on how something so small like a mitochodrion can have such a profound effect on an organism.
Th: Biology - Today you watched a video that gave us an explanation of what cellular respiration and our respiratory system have in common, it can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fxm85Fy4sQ Although this won't prepare you for tomorrow's test, it should give you some really good context to see how the microstructure and the macrostructures of the body work together. Next we practiced the two processes in our game. To close out tomorrow I want you to think about the phenomenon we had on Monday, maybe even do a little research, and when you come in tomorrow with your graph of the data from Monday, you should be able to completely explain why the leaf disks floated. you should be able to use the formula, and maybe even some more technical aspects, to describe what went on. Lastly, you should be able to talk about how the watse product of photosynthesis gets used. If you go to the end of this week's homework blog you'll find an explanation.
Medical Biology - Tomorrow you are going to need to explain the phenomemon that occured on Monday. You have all of the pieces. You are smart and capable, even if you aren't there is a good website at the end of this weekly blog. You should explain using the formula as well as the cellular functions, you should descirbe how it is a cycle, and how the waste products get used. Any way, that's all you need to do to be ready for tomorrow. Well, you need your graph to work from as well so make sure you have it! I guess I should have talked about what happened in class. ....we practiced the steps of both photosynthesis and cellular respiration by playing our game, but you also watched this video to tie what happens in the cell with what happens in our body: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fxm85Fy4sQ
F: Biology - No homework. Relax and be thankful.
Medical Biology - Just relax with your family and be thankful you live in the US.
