M: Biology - Today we went and took a look at the questions that you developed about ecology and climate change. At this point you should be ready for the test tomorrow on these topics. In addition you received a handout on creating a graph on human population growth. Please complete this work by Wednesday.
Medical Biology - We completed a review for the climate change and ecology text that will be tomorrow. In addition to being able to read data like the ones that were posted last week you should also know how climate change is connected to human populations (health impacts, cascading effects, threatening of keystone species, etc.). On those same lines you also received a graphing exercise in human population growth. Please be sure to have this completed by tomorrow. Oh, and here's the website link to the carbon footprint calculator: http://www.footprintnetwork.org/resources/footprint-calculator/?
T: Biology - Today you took a test on climate change and ecology. I hope you did well, but as we move into our last unit on density dependent factors in human populations I want you to complete the work that I assigned you yesterday. It will be worth 3 points on your grade! Don't forget that it actually has two sides to it.
Medical Biology - Today you took your test on our unit on climate change. Tonight I want you to... I want you to... CHILLAX!!! We start microbiology tomorrow. Super cool.
W: Biology - Today you were introduced to the microorganisms that are found in the microbiomes in every person. Using the information you were given on shape and size and researching the web, find out what Strep throat is and draw what it looks like on the left side of your entry. Then find out what a Staph infection is and what it would look like and draw that below the first. Be sure to include a description of each as well as a drawing. Lastly, on the left hand side of your entry, describe which you think would be worse to have, provide some kind of data to back up your point.
Here's the website we used today: http://htwins.net/scale2/
Medical Biology - Today you were introduced to the many types, shapes, and size of microbes in the microbiomes of people. Tonight, on the left hand side of your entry I want you to define what a pathogen is, and then rank the following pathogens as to the numbers they kill each year:
Hepatitis B virus
Human immunodeficiency virus (AIDS)
Extra credit question: e.coli doubles every 25 minutes. Starting with one, how many would you end up with in 24 hours, 1 week, 1 year? How much would they weigh? Show me EVERY calculation.
Th: Biology - Today was all about defining what the immune system does and what an infection is. You started by setting up a new entry titled Immune Response, the watched a video on microbiomes in the body. Next we defined what infection is and drew the immune system on the right side of the entry. On the left you worked with others to come up with a 1 sentence definition for each of these 9 major parts of the system. Then we swabbed some plates to grow cultures for Monday. As homework I want you to complete the handout (couldn't upload it) on Your Microbial Friends.
Medical Biology - Today we learned about the many microbiomes of the human body, what an infection is, and what happens when you use antibiotics. We then swabbed plates to grow some cultures for examination on Monday. The first graphic we used can be found below. The other resources are as follows: Microbiomes
Use of antibiotics and selection of microbes
Everyone has one of three gut ecosystems article: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/04/110420143620.htm
Tonight I want you to go to the left side of your entry and create a "One Pager" (see your process tasks) using the article listed above.
F: Biology - Today we reviewed the homework from last night and then you learned about how the immune system responds to attack and drew this on the right side of a new entry called Immune Response! On the left hand side I am asking you to make a drawing of how the immune system and the immune response can be thought of like a castle under siege. Yes, draw a picture and describe all of the players (B cells, T cells, macrophages, virus, antibodies, as well as the system structure) in immune response.
Medical Biology - Today you learned the parts of the immune system and then how that systems responds to invasions by viruses and bacteria. The immune response picture can be found below, but this is the video we watched today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQGOcOUBi6s So your job before Monday is to make sure you have a one sentence definition of what each of these immune system parts DOES. Not where they are found, but what they do! (tonsils, adenoids, lymph nodes, lymph vessels, thymus, spleen, appendix, peyer's patches, and bone marrow)
