M: Biology - Today we wrapped up our work on digestion. We're going to learn the next step by examining a specific enzyme called catalase, but to put what you know so far into a solid piece of work I want you to spend some time with your the meals you submitted to me last work as part of your homework. On this sheet, I want you to describe at which point in the meal each part get's broken down. You must include mechanical digestion and chemical digestion (acid, bile, etc.) This will be worth 3 points to your grade so be sure to do it, and do it on time. If you are one of those people who didn't do your homework last week, please use the following as the meal to digest: 1) a bologna sandwich, 2) a glass of cold water, 3) a salad with oil and vinegar. Think about each part of digestion and which enzymes break down each type of food.
If you take the following test you must register using your school email address to receive credit. Once it begins, you will only have 6 minutes before the quiz will time out. Be ready with your notes.
Medical Biology - Today you were introduced to the process by which we digest our food in order to get the materials that we need to function properly. You used the following website: http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/0072495855/student_view0/chapter26/animation__organs_of_digestion.html
to identify the mechanical and chemical digestive process each step of the way. Tonight, on the left side of the entry, you should identify where each of the following foods get digested (mechanically and chemically): A bologna sandwich (bread and bologna), a glass of milk, and a salad with oil and vinegar dressing (acetic acid, oil, greens).
T: Biology - Today you were introduced to the concepts of how to conduct experimentation, and more specifically the claim that was made on the advertisement I showed in class (https://knockout908.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/photo_00003-3.jpg). We discussed all of the components found in the lab write up guidelines (reference sheet in your notebook). Tomorrow we will lay the ground work for your first experiment on the enzyme catalase!
Medical Biology - Today you learned about the last pieces of metabolism and chemical digestion before we start experimenting; temperature, pH, water, and enzymes. Tonight I want you to finish what you didn't finish in class by playing the game (http://biomanbio.com/GamesandLabs/LifeChemgames/Enzymatic.html) and to then summarize your notes on the left hand side of the entry we started today using each of the terms today, as well as creating an illustration. ...If I was going to do an illustration I would do a "lock and key" to illustrate enzyme specificity.
W: Biology - Today you learned about a special enzyme called Catalase. It's only one of thousands of enzymes, but this is a very important enzyme that breaks down the cellular wastes that are produced in metabolism. Tonight you need to start the electronic version of your lab report that you will eventually print out when all of this lab work is done. So, tonight get the Title, Introduction, Hypothesis, Materials, and Procedures, whatever you didn't complete in class. Oh, the procedure can just be cut and pasted from the powerpoint I used today, it's posted below.
Medical Biology - Just see the above instructions for regular biology.
Th: Biology - First Big Lab today! Yippee! You all are in various stages of your research, but I think everyone finished collecting data on the first of your experiments. Take that data and put it into a Google Sheet so that you can easily make a graph for your lab report. I've included my example form class, just remember that my data is fictional!!! It's posted below. That's all you have to do at this point. Theoretically you should have a title, introduction, hypothesis, materials list, and procedure. Now you have the beginnings of your data graphs. By the time we're all done you should have a graph with your data, the classes data, and data from all of my classes like you'll see in my examples.
Medical Biology - You are working on the same lab right now as regular bio so just look above at what you should have. :)
F: Biology - So today you were able to collect the last of your data. You now have the data you need to turn your graph into a two line/bar graph. By Monday we'll have all of the collected data from all of the classes and you'll be able to put in your third set of data. This weekend, just make sure you have your graphs ready for that third set. If you are absent, please get the data from someone who was at school today. One more thing, don't forget about the fictional data that I've posted below. This document should help you navigate how to graph the data using Google Sheets.
Medical Biology - Take a look above for your class and homework information. You may want to compare your work to the work of others if you have the time to see if you are on the right track.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
