M: Biology - Today you had a chance to regroup, and then we started the conversation about what makes a good resource for finding information, and we used that to start the next entry in our notebooks, "where do all of the elements come from that make organic molecules?" I'm not really sure we're going to finish this today so I'll just say that here are the videos made in connection with the notes we took. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neMEo8ZrwuI AND https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mcC8kFacrk Tonight please look these up and tell me why these are good, or not such good sources of information. The following link should be able to help you make that decision. http://www.library.georgetown.edu/tutorials/research-guides/evaluating-internet-content
Medical Biology - So today we've set us up for our first medbio lab! It's all about your ability to measure and calculate. Tonight I want you to find objects or body parts that can help you remember the common medical measurements. Draw a picture and describe the equivalence. You should know mm, cm, m, ml, l, g, kg.
T: Biology - Today we finished our notes on where the elements came from and realized how much is really involved on the cosmic level as well as the microscopic level! Amazing, isn't it? Anyway, you were assigned your element cycle on Earth. Dig up what you can on how your assigned element transfers between the atmosphere, geosphere, and hydrosphere, and anything else that might be helpful, like how man influences these cycles. Pictures are great! This should be placed on the bottom on the left page of our notes and on an online document.
Medical Biology - Today you continued to learn about the measurement systems we'll be working with as we explore the field of medicine. There isn't much to do tonight since the equipment is all in class so just clean up your notes. Easy enough, right?! Actually, you could check out the following site: http://symptoms.webmd.com/#introView We'll be getting into diagnoses after measurement so it could be cool.
W: Biology - Today you did your research on your matter cycle. You looked at the basics of how the matter cycles in Earth's systems, transfers of matter from organic to inorganic, transfers from the atmosphere to the geosphere to the hydrosphere, disruptions to the system/cycle, how it integrates with other cycles, and finally evaluate the system as a whole to determine what we should be concerned about the most. Oh, and don't forget to create a bibliography on this shared document. Tonight you need to do what you didn't do in class today. This will set you up well for tomorrow.
Medical Biology - Today you continued completing the calculations and evaluations of quantitative and qualitative data. You really just need to be double checking your work to make sure that it's accurate. You will have today and tomorrow to complete the 8 stations, one of which you should have completed yesterday. If you were absent, I've placed the work sheets below. These really aren't very useful without the station data, but it will at least give you an idea of what we did.
Extra, Extra, Read all about it! If you would like to do a great public service to all of us, please consider participating in Coastal Clean Up Day on September 17th! Sign up at http://www.coastal.ca.gov/publiced/ccd/cleanup/#/map
Th: Biology - Okay, so today you had your last chance to get answers to your probing questions for cycling matter by getting into "expert" groups. Tonight you'll want to make sure that all of your information is summarized into small bits on the shared document. Tomorrow you'll be creating an integrated model with your team mates on a poster.
Medical Biology - Today was a short day so you probably only got 2 stations completed. This means that I'm going to give you tomorrow to work as well. BUT we'll take the quiz the last 10 minutes of class so make sure you have complete and accurate numbers and know the difference between qualitative and quantitative data. Oh, and today I passed out something that I didn't know I had to get to you! It's the authorization to do community service. I only received a hard copy so I haven't attached it to the website, but if you didn't get one, or lost it, come see me. Please get this important document back to me ASAP (As Soon As Possible).
F: Biology - So it's been a week of finding out where all these elements of life come from and how they cycle through the Earth. Today you put all of the pieces together on your poster. Next week when we get together you will be taking an assessment on this cycling of matter. You'll get a diagram or two and need to identify how matter cycles through it. Try explaining the image you see below for practice. The questions you need to respond to can be found on Wednesday's post. Also, don't forget that you have taken notes this week on these topics/concepts on a shared document and you are welcome to print out these notes and attach them to your notes. Please consider this and your assessment will be super easy ....if you've taken good notes.
Medical Biology - Today you should have finished up your measurement labs and in the last part of class we assessed the accurate completion of this work. This weekend you really just need to chill! Next week we'll progress to our next lab where we revisit the House, MD episode you watched and compare it to real diagnosing of patients.
