IB Biology - I'm out tomorrow and Wednesday, but know that there will be a test on Thursday to close out our unit on genetics. The topics you will be tested on will cover fertilization, meiosis, inheritance, chromosomal problems, independent assortment, sex-linkage, PCR and Electrophoresis, chi-square test, ethics of genetic modification and cloning, and speciation. Today we practiced, but you won't have much of a chance to ask me questions so please make sure you get it all. The next few days you will be doing a virtual lab in class, but you will have no homework other than preparing for the test. Please do not waste your time both in and outside of class. On another note, the following question was asked about genetic drift and gene flow. Here's a response to that question,
Honors Biology - I'm out tomorrow and Wednesday, so please please please make sure you complete the protein synthesis project IN CLASS by paying attention to the steps. The steps should be on the board. As to homework, I want you to be prepared for Thursday's test. This test will be on using the original sentences (MOM AND DAD...) and showing what they mean in relation to what we are studying, also how do they show what can go wrong! ...point mutations, and frameshift mutations. BUT I also need you to complete a write up on the movie we watched today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1bZEUgqVI So on the right you should have addressed Individuals, others around the individual, Communities, and the future. On the left I need you use a writing strategy found in your resource pages called the Don't Break the Bank." to address a ultimate question of "How could our society be impacted by this concept of epigenetics. Consider bullying, poverty, drug use, crime, assualt, etc. OH, and don't forget you need TAPE for the lab!!! Hey, Tape! .....ummmm, TAPE! You need tape. ...for tomorrow. TAPE!!!!
IB Biology - See Monday, test on Thursday. Today you started your virtual lab. You will have tomorrow to continue with this project, but there is a lot so get moving. You may not use any online resources.
Honors Biology - See Monday. Today you continued with your protein synthesis project. You may want to look ahead to tomorrow nights homework which is preparation for the test on Thursday.
IB Biology - See Monday. If for any reason you and your partner did not complete the virtual lab, please finish it tonight. You may not use any online resources other than the virtual lab itself.
Honors Biology - See Monday, test tomorrow. Your protein should be complete at this point. Do you know what you would do to explain the "MOM AND DAD..." sentences? Do you know which sentences are samples of frame shifts, point mutations, etc.??? do you understand how this is an analogy for DNA coding?
IB Biology - Today was really just a test day. I hope you did well. I got a really good feeling from what I saw. Please hang in there. Senioritis is kicking in and I want you all to do so well on your upcoming exams. Let me know what you need if you are struggling. Spring break is right around the corner! There is no specific homework for tonight, but in the meantime, look at these really cool opportunities....
ATTN STUDENTS: This is a FANTASTIC opportunity for your students to learn about short-term, local and affordable healthcare training programs. Even if your students are convinced they are going straight to medical school, please know that most upper-level healthcare training programs require some type of experience even to apply. HOC programs provide certifications that would allow you to work in the healthcare field to gain experience (and money), while moving towards your goals.
the Health Occupation Center's upcoming OPEN HOUSE: Tuesday, April 10th from 4-6 pm (This is the Tuesday after we return from Spring Break.) HOC is an Adult Education campus with a CTE focus on medical training. Our 20+ programs ready students for employment in the healthcare industry. If you have any students getting ready to graduate and they are searching for options in medical educational training, then this might be a good fit for them!
If you, or any of your students or their families have wondered about HOC and would like to know more, please know this is an open invitation to everyone! Visit our website at hoc.guhsd.net
We will have all the clinical labs open:
EMT, Pharmacy Tech, Phlebotomy, Dental Asst, Medical Asst, three nursing labs, Veterinary Asst and many others. HOC We'll also have candy, prizes, and raffles. Lots to do and see throughout the campus. Hope to see you there!!
The UCSD San Diego Supercomputer Center and the UCSD School of Medicine Health Sciences Division is once again
offering the Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) for High School Students
Fall 2018 - Spring 2019
Student Application Period: March 19- April 18, 2018
UC San Diego’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) is a campus-wide program that engages high school students through a mentoring relationship with an expert from a vast array of campus disciplines and departments. MAP’s mission is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UCSD faculty, postdoctoral fellows and staff mentors in their own area of interest to complete a research project (i.e. independent study, class projects or career path interest). MAP is an opportunity for students to take the first step into a potential career path, allowing them to build an early foundation for success in their academic and research career.
The program reaches out to all students who are seeking mentors to guide them with their research and career interests. We strive to recruit mentors from across campus who work in fields as varied as aerospace engineering and archeology to athletics and cancer research. Students refer to the MAP website for mentor bios and research interests and through an online application process request to be paired with a mentor who best matches their research interest and career goals. By volunteering 2-4 hours per week during the school year, the program allows students to become familiar with a particular lab or work place from fall of this year through spring of next year.
For complete information about the MAP program and to access the online application, please visit http://education.sdsc.edu/studenttech/?page_id=2393. For questions, please contact Ange Mason of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Honors Biology - Today we mostly played catch up! We made sure to clarify the lab you have been working on and to finish it in order to get a score for it tomorrow. IN addition to finishing this protein synthesis you should also be prepared to discuss protein synthesis, mutations, and how the "MOM AND DAD..." sentences related to these concepts.
IB Biology - Work and life balance are important to stay sane. This vacation take time for you to expand your body and mind in new ways. Try something new. Go somewhere you haven't seen before. Be kind to a stranger and see how that feels. Look at mother nature, ...just look and be amazed. Go to the beach and breathe in the air for a while with a good friend. Stretch in the morning. Just don't sleep all day, or lock yourself in your room. You/we are often deficient in Vitamin N (nature), GO GET SOME!
