KNOW ------- Mitosis vs. Meiosis! IPMAT....Foldable! (Asexual vs. Sexual)
- Basic Genetics: Dominant/Recessive, Codominant, Incomplete Dominance, Multiple Alleles (Blood Types), Sex-linked
- Genetic Disorders: Recessive= Cystic Fibrosis, Sickle Cell
Sex-linked: Hemophilia, Colorblindness, male-pattern baldness
Mutation = Nondisjunction! during Meiosis Prophase I = Down's Syndrome(47), Turner's
--> Basic Pedigree Concept
****Genetic Disorder Research Project -
DUE 5-11-11, Wednesday, Counts as TWO TEST grades!!!!

--> --> CELLS!!!
*** This is an awesome powerpoint on cell organelles and their functions! I cannot take credit for this powerpoint though - Thank you Mrs. Foglia. .....

The following websites are good for starts for animal research:
COOL WEBSITE -->
National Geographic Animal Video Website:
PLANTS --> chapters 21-24
--> March...18, 2010, Thursday --Today we studied the parts of a flower and how it reproduces, what attracts insects to a flower, and what a "ripened ovary" is.....hope everyone comes prepared for a possible pop quiz tomorrow :) .... hint, hint!
--> Wednesday..March 17, 2010...
--> Seed/Monocot/Dicot ppt....
--> good plant tutorial .... http://urbanext.illinois.edu/gpe/case1/c1brief.html
The Plant Unit covers chapters 21-24. We will be doing quite a few labs involving seed germination, fruit structure, and plant growth. Students will be responsible for keeping up with daily obserrvations, questions, and notes that go along with each lab.
Diagrams to know -->
PROTISTS & FUNGI --> Ch.19&20
--> fungus ppt...

Bacteria & Viruses--> Ch.18
Powerpoint for viruses....
***Take good notes on all sides up until the reproductive cycles...then be able to tell the difference between Lytic & Lysogenic Cycles!
Here is the powerpoint on bacteria covered last week....

I was very impressed to see so many of my students (past and present) involved in the festival. It involves so much of what we are studying right now....so whether they realize it or not....students are practicing what they are learning!!!!
Over 3 days students completed labs using eggs, vinegar, corn syrup, and water. They practiced lab safety, data collection, and observational skills. We discovered how different substance can affect our eggs in surprising ways.
