EXTRA CREDIT: Click this link to find out more about the SDSU Science & Engineering Sampler Event coming Saturday, March 18th from 9am-2pm! Here's just a few of the workshops you can participate in: CSI meets CSU
Learn about Forensic Science, develop fingerprints utilizing different methods. Electron Microscope Facility
See inside cells magnified thousands of times on our scanning and transmission electron microscopes. Regenerating the Human Body with Stem Cells Learn how stem cells make all the different parts of the human body, and how they repair and replace dead and damaged organs.Flow Cytometry Facility: Lasers Make Cells Glow Watch with microscopes as high-powered lasers allow individual cells to fluoresce in different colors. Museum of Biodiversity See big bugs, hairy spiders, skeletons, furs, feathers, plants, and more from our vast museum collection. Learn about field biology and natural history education at SDSU. Phage Attack: Weapons of Microbe Destruction There’s a battle between the smallest, most numerous entities on Earth. Learn how phage, the viruses of bacteria launch attacks against their bacterial targets. See bacterial cultures before and after phage attack. Learn about the impact these interactions can have on human health. AND MANY MANY MORE
M: Biology - HOLIDAY
Medical Biology - HOLIDAY
T: Biology - Today started by looking at what we've learned so far this year. Then we looked at the experimental data from the corn growing experiment and compared that data to the predicted data. Lastly we looked at co-dominant and incomplete dominance in organisms. Tomorrow you will be putting in responses from these three sheets that you've done into Socrative for points so make sure they are all complete.
Medical Biology - Today there was a recap of what we've studied so far this year. Then we reflected on the corn growing experiment. How does experimental data compare to predicted data? Lastly, you had a powerpoint presentation on incomplete and co-dominance. Tonight I want you to use "Haiku Master says..." strategy to come up with haiku for each of these two terms.
W: Biology - Today we first put all of our responses to the sponge bob worksheets in on Socrative. Next we looked at sex linked traits and sex influenced traits as they might give us a clue into our triplet mystery which we will prepare for tomorrow. By Friday you will be taking your test on the "News of the Weird" triplets.
Medical Biology - Today's lesson was all about sex linked and sex influenced traits. Then we took this info and applied it to our triplets, which today you found out the boy has Downs Syndrome. Tomorrow you will be taking your test on explaining the "News of the Weird" triplet scenario. You will be required to use the following vocabulary: Meiosis, gametes, zygotes, chromosomes, genes, alleles, dominant and recessive. Make sure your notes are clean, and easy to read.
Th: Biology - Today we spent our time preparing for the test we have tomorrow. This means that your paperwork should be all together and glued into your notebook. You can also pre-write your responses to the big questions. How is it possible? How can you have a kid with characteristics that the parents don't have? etc. (The paper can be found below). Oh, but don't forget that the boy was found to have Down Syndrome. Don't also forget that the vocabulary words you MUST use: Meiosis, Gametes, Zygote, Chromosomes, Genes, Alleles, Dominant and recessive.
Medical Biology - Today you took the test on how the triplets could possibly be real. Tomorrow you will be making a kid with your "Soul (sole) Mate"! The only thing I need you to do is to .... I just realized I can't have you do the self-assessment to do this project tomorrow. We'll get it worked out tomorrow. I bet you're upset not having homework! In the meantime, you might want to check out this interesting site that talks about what research is out there on eye color, intelligence, etc.: https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer#traits
F: Biology - Today you made your final responses to the News of the Weird, Two is Company, Three's a Crowd. This weekend I need you to relax and get ready for making babies on Monday! You will be looking at your phenotype and combining it with a partner to create offspring.
Medical Biology - Today you did a self-assessment of your phenotype in order to combine that phenotype with a partner on Monday. This weekend, you have nothing more, but to relax! Woo-Hoo!
