Agenda Spring 2019

Peer Tutoring Dates

1/24,  2/7, 2/21, 3/7, 3/14, 4/4, 4/11

4/11–In class:  students took their Mod 15 exam and then we began the first half of Mod 16.  See the email for more information about what was discussed in class.  We ended class watching the beginning of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, an indepth dvd that explains in great detail the fertilization of the egg by a sperm and then what happens after fertilization.  A summary will be due once we finish the dvd.

Hwk–follow the agenda, study for quiz over Male Reproductive system (use notes and PPT). No diagram on this quiz.  It is a mix of matching and true/false.  Know the terminology and structures.

4/4–In class–students took the Cell Respiration quiz in class.  They were allowed to make a notecard to use on the exam.  (Ms. Kim has them graded–anyone that wants to retake the quiz or correct it may pick it up on Tuesday and return in on Thursday.  If you only attend on Thursday, plan to come early to correct your quiz.  You may use your notes when you retake/correct the quiz.)  After the quiz, we finished mod 15, watched 2 video segments from Khan Academy over Nephrons and how they filter the blood and discussed some upcoming info for Mod 16.

Hwk–follow the agenda. Study for quiz over Mod 15.  Study your notes and the info from the PPT.  This quiz is not deep–most questions are straightforward ie what is micturition, what is urine made of, what are the parts of the nephron, what are the organs of the system and what are their functions, what are the parts of the kidney, path of urine, label the system and nephron (possibly).

3/28–In class–today was a tough day (cell respiration is hard!).  We finished Mod 14 on Cellular Respiration then began Mod 15 and dissected a sheep’s kidney.  No lab report for the kidney dissection.

I handed out 4 items at the end of class (2 if students already had a coloring book).  One item was Mod 14 quiz (since we did not get to do much with first half of module, I would suggest taking quiz open notes or book) and the other was the printed PPT from lecture.  I am attaching the PPT, too, b/c there is a diagram of Kreb’s Cycle on the PPT that is not in the handout and there is a correction on # ATP produced during ETS (should be 32 not 36/38 for that step).  There are 36 net ATP produced overall.  The other two sheets are coloring pages for Mod 15.
Hwk is to follow the agenda.  I will email a handout detailing what students should study for Cell Respiration quiz.  I am revamping the quiz–students will not have to write out each step, but will have to answer questions about each step.  I am also attaching a summary handout to this email to help them study.  The quiz will ONLY cover cellular respiration.  I will take questions directly from the handout attached to this email and from the PPT.  For BONUS, students will be allowed to write each step (must follow the handout I will make and send today–I will title it Steps for Cellular Respiration for Bonus on Quiz).  This is not easy–those that haven’t had chemistry may feel overwhelmed but they need to understand that I am not testing their chemistry knowledge.  I am testing the info from A P over cellular respiration, the 3 main steps, what happens in each step, where each step occurs, how many ATP’s are made at each step, what steps give off carbon dioxide, what steps carry Hydrogen to the last step (ETS), which steps require oxygen, etc.
For those that would like to study more, I can be available Tuesday morning before Tutorial at 8 to review and study.

3/14–In class–students took Quiz 13B and then watched Dr. Menton’s Respiratory System video (it covered what I had planned to cover), then I went over the first few slides of the PPT, then Ms. Kim scrolled thru the slides until class ended. No summary due for the dvd but you should plan to use those notes to help you study the chapter.

Hwk–follow the agenda.

2/28–In class:  students completed Exp 13.1 in lab and then we went over about 1/2 of the module in class.  Hwk is to follow the agenda–work on your coloring pages and finish the lab report, if not done in class.

2/21–In class:  students took Exam 9 – 12 and then watched a video entitled, “Evolution vs God” featuring Ray Comfort.  I highly recommend parents watch it, too.  After the exam, students were given the Path of Blood quiz to retake (those that did not do well the first time).

The exams have been graded and recorded in the grade book.  Students may restudy and correct their exam next week before Tutorial, 8 am, in D204, on Thursday.  If you will email me, I will respond with your grade.  Remember to study the eye, ear and heart diagrams.  They accounted for 39 points out of a total of 101.
 Hwk is to follow the agenda.  We will begin Mod 13 next week.

2/14-Today was a great day!  Students completed the ‘Path of Blood’ quiz, dissected a sheep’s heart and cow’s eye, then watched a 26 min video of circulatory system.  Hwk is to follow the agenda. No lab reports for the dissections but you do have to type a summary of the video segment we watched.  Make sure that you title the summary using the title of the video and date it 2/14.

2/7–Today was an eventful day!  I am sure you have already heard about the blood typing–students seemed to really like finding out their blood type.  I told them to check with their parents to see if what they determined in class was accurate.

Hwk is to follow the agenda.  For those that did not turn in their coloring pages today, you need to email/text me the pictures if you want us to grade them.  Test Mod 9 – 12 is in 2 weeks, so start studying now.  We will review next week and I will give you a former students study guide (I did not make this) as a study tool.  Study for path of blood quiz and labeling diagram (heart).

1/31–In class–we were split into lab and lecture today.  In lab, students took quiz Mod 10 and then performed the blood slide lab–they looked at a prepared slide of a blood smear under the microscope.  In lecture, we finished the module–we went over the path of blood thru the heart, the anatomy of the heart, oxygenated vs deoxygenated blood and watch 3 short video segments.  Two were on the electrical signal and heartbeat and the other was a Crash Course video summary of the class lecture.

Blood Type Lab is next week.  Bring your permission slips to class if you did not turn it in today.  This is part of the required lab for this class.
Hwk is to follow the agenda.  Study for your quiz next week over the Blood.  Make sure you know everything from the PPT from that lesson. Slides from that PPT to know for sure:  1-19, 22.  The quiz is fill in the blank with no word bank.
1/24–In class–students took quiz 9C over the diagrams of eye and ear, I handed back coloring sheets and last week’s quiz, handed out coloring pages for Mod 11, notes sheet for Mod 11 and the permission slip for Blood Typing Lab (which is in 2 weeks).    Then, we covered about 1/2 of the module–everything related to the blood, watched a 7ish minute video segment on blood cells and then a 30 minute video on Sickle Cell disease.
Hwk–follow the agenda.  We will quiz on Mod 10 next week in class.  Hormones to know: calcitonin, insulin, thyroid hormones, estrogen, testosterone, melatonin, prolactin, growth hormone.  Know the info on the additional notes sheet and know each organ and what its major purpose is.
1/17–In class–students took the first quiz over the eyes and ears then we covered all of Mod 10.  Hwk is to follow the agenda for 1/17.  Next week, assuming our dissecting stuff arrives, we will dissect the cow’s eye and take the second quiz (diagrams with no word bank) over the eyes and ears.  I added the link to the website that has the PPT we used today to take notes.  Quiz over Mod 10 in two weeks.
Link to PPT for Mod 10:

1/7–in class, we began Mod 9 and covered the info thru the tongue and nose (gustation and olfaction).  Students should study for their quiz over the notes from the PPT that was emailed last week.  I should have the up-to-date Agenda posted before the next class–although I handed out the first page in class that covers the first 2 – 4 classes.
For 1/3–we will begin Module 9 tomorrow.  We will have a lab as well, so plan to set up 4 tables in the Big Room and 4 Tables in D204.  Don’t forget your student notebooks.

Honors Letter

Honors Requirements Detailed

Letter of Intent

Science Fair Timeline–same as timeline for biology (this is only for those interested)

A & P Honors Research Project–a research paper coupled with a PPT presentation for the class.

“This is our advanced biology course. Combined with Exploring Creation with Biology, it gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. In other words, these two courses together cover the entire “advanced placement” (AP) curriculum. In order to take this course, the student MUST have completed a first-year biology course AND a first-year chemistry course. It covers both the anatomy and the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail.”  Apologia website

Organization is very important and students are required to keep a notebook with sections for notes, book work, quizzes/tests, and worksheets.  Students should bring their textbook, student notebook, coloring book, binder, colored pencils and pencils to every class.

Two weeks will be spent covering most modules.  There is a tremendous amount of information per module—vocabulary, structure, functions, etc.  Students will need to spend time studying every day.  Weekly work will include reading, questions from the textbook, worksheets and studying for quizzes and tests.  Students will complete at least two small projects i.e. building a sarcomere.   In addition to normal course work, students will read and critique current event articles.

Students should plan on at least two quizzes per module.  Quizzes normally cover the previous week’s lesson, vocabulary, and diagrams.  Tests are administered after modules 1 – 4, 5 – 8, 9 – 12, and 13 – 16.  The fall final exam will cover 5 – 8 in-depth and possibly have important material from 1 – 4.  The spring exam will cover material from 13 – 16 plus possibly important material from 9 – 12.  Tests will be taken in class.

Lab experience is a vital component of anatomy and physiology.  Students will spend time performing microscope labs and doing dissections.  At this level, most dissections will be done alone.  The only dissections that will be done in a group setting will be the fetal pig, frog and brain.  Due to cost and size, the pig will be dissected in groups of two.  Lab drawings and summaries will be required for all labs.

This course will have an honors component. This honors component will be different from the Chemistry honors component.
