M: Biology - This week we are finishing our projects on climate change! You should have addressed most of our issues at this point. You should have by tomorrow:
1) The Problem,
2) The region,
3) The biome type,
4) a trophic pyramid for the biome,
5) a food web that shows at-risk animals and keystone species and uses population dynamics concepts.
6) The reasons/ethics around why we have created this problem.
7) A restatement of how your problem impacts your region
8 )How we can recover, succession.
9) What is the impact of this problem on humans?
10) How climate change affects this problem.
11) What are our solutions (might be related to #8)
And...APA in text citation.
A minimum of 3 data sets must be included, but you probably will use more.
The website we used to get our information about succession can be found at: http://biologiepagina.nl/Flashfiles/successie.swf
Medical Biology: See the above instructions, but you really need to make sure all of your citations are really clean; Author and Date in parentheses in the text, APA formatting in a bibliography. Also remember that if a particular concept does not apply to your topic you should still include it and then explain why it doesn't apply.
T: Biology - Today we had some time to finish our projects, but you needed to add the information on human impact so the readers know how it affects us directly. Please make sure you are using citations! This is all due Friday.
Medical Biology - Today you had a split amount of time between human impact issues of the problem you are studying and working on the project overall. You need to be sure that you include the conditions and symptoms that happen due to the problem you are researching. Oh, are you using the proper citation as you go? And lastly, here's the website I showed you today: https://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/programs/geh/climatechange/health_impacts/
W/Th: Biology - So Friday is the big day when your project is due, and we have two minimum days in a row! Use the list above to make sure you have everything. Tomorrow I'll be asking you to clean up your "Story line" and what I mean by that is that your slides have transitions so that you tell your climate change story so that there is...
An introduction to the problem,
A description of the environment without your issue,
Why the problem exists and why we should solve it,
How the problem impacts
How climate change will affect your problem,
And lastly, Our best solution to this issue,
Here are the sites I used in class today: Extreme weather events: https://climate.nasa.gov/effects/
I forgot to add the video we watched on Thursday: https://www.ted.com/talks/al_gore_the_case_for_optimism_on_climate_change?language=en
Medical Biology - See the above instructions. Please be sure that you include proper APA citation and symptoms of your health issues. Don't forget to use the resource links I've provided.
F: Biology - SO the projects were all shared with me today. It'll take me a few days to get through those so hang tough, but in the meantime you should know that your will be having a test on Tuesday of this coming week. It's on climate change and will mostly be focused on interpreting graphs like the ones I've attached below and then being able to draw conclusions about the affects of this data. The best thing you can do is to go through your notes, starting with "Everyone is talking about climate change" and then writing a level 2 or 3 question on each entry. Just one questions per entry will do if it a level 2 or 3 question.
Medical Biology - Much of what I need you to do is listed above, but remember that you had a heavier focus on human health impacts so as you prepare for next weeks test, not only should you know how to interpret the data I've posted below, but also prepare questions that are focused on human health with each entry we've done.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
