IB Biology - HOLIDAY
Honors Biology - HOLIDAY
IB Biology - Today we reviewed all of the components that you must use for the evaluation piece of your IA. You have a rubric, 2 samples, be sure to really make it happen. This beautiful piece of work is due by next Tuesday at midnight, but don't wait until the end. Many of you have come to me for help and I have offered a lot of guidance, GOOD JOB! In addition to the IA, I also need you to continue working on your content sections that were assigned last week. Please make sure you have those ready to go by Friday. You'll have time to work on those tomorrow.
Honors Biology - Today we started by reviewing your homework from the weekend. Stem cells have amazing potential to help us in the future. I always think about what the future would be like if our doctors all had reserves of our own stem cells ready to be grown for any use we needed. IN any case, we know that during gamete production during meiosis can cause some problems for a baby (monsomy and trisomy), and we'll look at that later this week by doing a lab. For tonight, on the left hand side of your notes on chromosome problems from today, you will watch the following movie and make a 5 point guideline for mothers. This guideline must have color and can be no more or less than 5. Remember, put it on the left. Here's the link to the movie: http://www.webmd.com/baby/video/amniocentesis
Lastly, know that we'll be checking PARENT INPUT for the grading period. This should already have been placed in the back of your notebook when we first came together, and you should approach your parents about completing it. I know you haven't done this before, but your parent only needs to read the rubric, read your work, and place a score, comment to you, and signature in the appropriate spot. This counts like a test grade, so DON'T FORGET!!!!
IB Biology - Today you had the day to prepare your section from the book and to work on your IA. Thank you to those people who came for more guidance on your work. I am your partner!!! Please make sure that you are keeping the pace! ...and the peace. Tomorrow we have our flight nurse coming as a guest speaker so on Friday you should be ready to put some final touches on your IA and be ready to present.
Honors Biology - Today you had the opportunity to plant some corn. this is actually some special seed, not just popcorn. We'll see what happens as we grow it and I'll let you in on a secret once we get to sprouting. In the meantime, we discussed amniocentesis and it's uses for karyotyping. You then received the karyotype for a patient and using the left side of the entry you should sort the chromosomes to show 22 autosomes and one set of sex chromosomes. If your patient has an abnormality, the karyotype will not match a normal human, so finish matching the karyotype at home tonight. ...and don't forget that you need to get your parent input filled out tonight as well. details are listed yesterday.
IB Biology - Today we had the pleasure of hearing from Mrs. Cochran and how to make decisions about what branch of healthcare might interest you. She also shared the path that took her into her exciting career of being a flight nurse on a rescue helicopter. Tonight there isn't any specific homework, but you should have your content chapter ready to go, and your IA in a near-final form. I will be going to going over the fine points from my conference so that you can polish the IA in preparation for the Tuesday turn in date.

OH, and I talked to you guys about making sure to fill out the Medical Pathways form. Here's that link again: https://sites.google.com/guhsd.net/emonge/medical-pathway/forms
IB Biology - Today you first got the fine points of doing the IA. Next we used went over the review questions on cell membranes, and then lastly we got to hear the introduction to chapter 3.1 on genes. When we complete this chapter we will post these powerpoints online. In the meantime, I know everyone is freaking out on their IA to get it done before the Tuesday at midnight deadline. If you chose to check your info ahead of time on turnitin.com you can do so by going to the website and using class code: 17388897 and passcode: IBIA
Honors Biology - Today we diagnosed your patients for chromosomal disorders. Next you submitted your lab work for your points, and then we learned that the boy in the triplet has down's syndrome! This adds another layer to the mystery of the triplets, but I bet you could explain it now! Lastly, we watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyaEQEmt5ls No homework this weekend. Enjoy mother nature.
