M: Biology - Okay, so today you finalized your thoughts on the mystery solution and what you know about water! Tomorrow we move on to another topic, but first I would like you to create a Venn diagram of for water and macromolecules. Be sure to state more than just what atoms build them. Let's hear something about their properties (Hint; polarity, etc.). This should all be completed on your notes for "Properties of water."
Medical Biology - Today you submitted your final diagnoses for the five patients we looked at last week. This was really an exercise in thinking logically. Today we picked up where we left off prior to all of the class shifting, which was dealing with the chemistry of life. Today we discussed the origins of the elements that make up living things. Tonight I want you to use the element that you chose in your group and to create a drawing on the left of your entry of the cycle is goes through on Earth. Be sure you know what everything means on your illustration and give us an APA citation for the site you used. Should it have color? OF COURSE! Four or more! Here's some help for doing your APA formatted citation: http://www.bibme.org/citation-guide/apa/website.
HEY MEDBIO STUDENTS: Your Health Pathways Release form is due THIS FRIDAY. The electronic version can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uCWEUdv9tjr0pBfmshqYG_jCgRVoIO62yJqN4FKvMZc/edit
ALSO VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!! We currently have volunteer opportunities specifically for our health pathway students available. Please encourage your students to volunteer and sign up on the website for the following opportunities:
T: Biology - Today we started to look at how macromolecules get processed in the body through digestion. Tonight, on the right side of the entry, identify the steps to digestion and the organs involved. You are simply adding to your notes from today. Tomorrow you need to have an idea of what happens at each step.
Medical Biology - So today we looked at how the cycles of matter intersect. Tonight, if you didn't get to it in class, you need to identify man-made disruptions to these cycles and what health impacts (direct and indirect) these disruptions have. Fairly simple. I think you can squeeze this list below the illustration of your cycle, but if you need to go to the next entry you can. Or you can put it on another piece of paper and then attach it to your notes "Elemental Origins."
W: Biology - Today you learned about the difference between mechanical digestion and chemical digestion and the role they play in us getting what we need to survive. Tonight I want you to get specific and describe how your section of the digestive track might do mechanical and chemical breakdown of the macromolecules in your gut and for what reason. You can use the next entry if you have no room on your current notes.
Medical Biology - Today you reviewed the health consequences of disruptions to our natural matter cycling, and then we got a chance to view the Mystery Solution! Tonight I want you to identify and record five properties of water that are unique to this special substance! This should be only five sentences and should be on the top left of the entry you started today. You can find information in many places on the web. Be sure to use an APA citation/reference below your work.
Th: Biology - Today you put it all together about the digestive system. Here's a simulation that can help if you weren't here: http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/0072495855/student_view0/chapter26/animation__organs_of_digestion.html Your job tonight is to put together what you think is a healthy meal on a separate piece of paper. Be sure to include not only the type of food, but also the quantity. While you are working on this, I want you to hand your notebook over to a parent and ask them to use the rubric provided in the back of your notebook to review your notes and to give you a score. You must have a number, signature, and a comment to you to receive the credit, and it counts like a test score! If you somehow lost those sheets, it is posted on the page "Online Resources."
Medical Biology - Today you worked hard on learning more about the amazing nature of water! You should have completed a chunk of it in class. I'm asking you to complete through number 17 before tomorrow. 1-12 goes on the right and 13-17 goes on the left, but remember I'm not talking about just writing out answers, but recording the information that the question solicits. A copy of the work can be found below. And in addition, please have your parent go through your notebook and to score you using the rubric and the parent input score sheet. These are in the back of your notebook, but if you somehow lost it, you can find another copy on the "Online Resources" page.
F: Biology - So today you played an online game that was meant to teach you some of the basics of how chemical digestion works. Here's that site again: http://biomanbio.com/GamesandLabs/LifeChemgames/Enzymatic.html We'll come back to these concepts first thing on Monday in the form of a quiz. so your only homework this weekend is to be prepared by knowing what amylase, lipase, and protease do. Know what mechanical digestion is, what happens in each part of the digestive system, and what enzymes do. Lastly, get your parents to complete the parent input section of your notebooks if you haven't already done this. Remember, this score is worth the equivalence of a test score! Big points! If you have somehow lost your parent input sheets you can still print a new copy by downloading a copy from the "Online Resources" page.
Medical Biology - Today you had a chance to describe your theory on how the mystery solution demo worked. ...I hope you mentioned the polarity of graphite and water in your description! In any case, this weekend I hope you'll get your Parent Input sheet completed by your parents. This is worth a whole test grade so do a good job! If you need the sheets again, you can download them from the "Online Resources" page.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
