Agenda Spring 2019

Peer Tutoring Dates

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

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.

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.
