World History 2 – Points Recovery (Mr. Stewart)

Discovery School World History 2
G. Palacios, Principal Mr. Ian Stewart

Points Recovery – Greece and Rome Units

Up to fifty exam points recovery can be earned for complete answers to the following. Students may choose to do either one of these prompts, both of these prompts, or neither of these prompts.

THE MAXIMUM CREDIT ON ANY EXAM WILL BE 100 POINTS. For example, if a student currently has a score of 65 on a test and earns 40 points on the recovery activity, the student will “only” receive a 35-point bump.

Question One – Ancient Greece

Focusing on the achievement of Hippocrates, explain the level of medical knowledge that existed during the time of the ancient Greeks. Your answer should give a rundown of the medical theories of that time and give some explanations about why their knowledge wasn’t better than it was.

DO NOT TRY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION BY GOING TO JUST ONE SOURCE.

Question Two – Ancient Rome

Was there anything the Roman Empire could have done to both maintain its size/greatness AND prevent its own collapse, or was the fall of the Western Roman Empire inevitable?

Points will be granted based on the quality and depth of your analysis. There isn’t a “right” answer here, but there is a “right” way to go about answering the question.

DO NOT TRY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION BY GOING TO JUST ONE SOURCE.

For both questions, the following condition applies . . .

PLAGIARIZED WORK (EITHER FROM THE INTERNET OR A CLASSMATE) WILL RESULT IN ZERO CREDIT WITH NO SECOND CHANCE TO EARN EXTRA CREDIT . . . EVER.

50 points
Observations: Use the qualitative and quantitative observations from the grape lab to describe what happens to a material surrounded by semipermeable membrane.  (4 points)
Problem/Question:  Make a one sentence statement to describe the main problem or question you are trying to solve in this project. (2 points)
Research:  Describe the properties of the cell membrane and how these make the cell membrane semipermeable.   Define osmosis and explain how it takes place, including the various environments that cause it to occur.  Explain how the cell reacts to the environments in order to keep homeostasis.  Describe the cell membrane’s role in maintaining homeostasis.  (10 points)
Hypotheses:  State the three hypotheses regarding how the cell will react to each environment.  (6 points)
Materials:  Create a list of materials that was used in your lab. (2 points)
