Today we discussed cancer. We also added HENRIETTA LACKS to our Giants of Science pages. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch the video below and then add Henrietta Lacks to your GOSATOT. Some of you still need to finish up your station work for cell division. If you are not playing dodgeball tomorrow homebase I will expect you to spend some time on stations with me instead of spectating!
Today we finished station work and completed the WRITE IT! portion. Some of you still need to come in during homebase or lunchtime to finish this work. Tomorrow we discover what happens when cell division does not stop. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can't just copy someone else's work for this task. You will need to setup a time with me to catch up this work (some of you have missed the entire stations lab... that is okay... when you return we will get you set up).
Today we continued station work to understand the purpose, phases, events, and sequence of cell division. Tomorrow will be chaos as we visit the last station and go back to really finish them all! We also will add the "WRITE IT!" work. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you definitely should plan to spend lunch working (pack one or grab one and come to 211) to get caught up! Study hall Thursday is also an option!
Today we began our understanding of the purpose, events, sequence, and phases of cell division. Tomorrow we continue with our stations. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY come visit during homebase study hall to catch up a station or two (or come at lunch). You will need to put in a bit of extra time to keep pace for our station rotations. You can also do some practice with THIS MATCHUP GAME.
Today we explored DNA is copied and then an organized set of events evenly divides these instructions so identical cells can form. Next week we explore more of cell division, mitosis, and meiosis. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you don't need to worry about making anything up however the video below is quite interesting to ponder.
Today we reviewed transcription (when mRNA is created from DNA code), translation (protein synthesis: amino acids are linked together to make proteins), and replication (when DNA is copied). We also took a SWYK on the nucleus information we have been learning. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to take that SWYK when you return.
Today we were able to transcribe and translate a code to build critters (just like RNA transcribes and translates the code from DNA to make proteins). Tomorrow we SWYK on the Nucleus 101 information. You can play THIS GAME TO REVIEW or maybe choose to play THIS BUILDING DNA GAME. Both are helpful to review the concepts this week plus the website is really cool to explore. Take 10 minutes and adventure away! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed the activity (bummer) but nothing to make up. You will need to review tonight and be ready for the SWYK too!
Today we compared and contrasted the two nucleic acids (and added a venn diagram to our notes... p. 75). We also discussed what might happen if there is a "typo" or mistake in the DNA code... it's a mutation. Some mutations are harmful, some are helpful, and many don't change a thing. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can add THESE NOTES to your Nucleus 101 work so far.
Today we discovered how DNA codes for proteins and how RNA fits in the process! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can watch the video below and COPY THESE NOTES in your notebook page 75. I will grade your notebook on Tuesday or when you return to class!
