Biology- Week of Nov 20-22

Topic:  Science Fair & Cellular Energy

Classwork:  Cellular Energy Review 

Cellular Respiration Marshmallow Model 

Homework:  Reading ?’s 4.5 Part I and Part II- Due Monday, November 20th

Reading ?’s 4.6– Due Tuesday, November 21st

Test: Cellular Energy Test- Wednesday, November 22nd

Science Fair:  You should be working on your display boards.  (See guidelines here.)   Science fair project presentations will be the week of November 26-30.  You should aim for a 7-10 minute presentation. For the presentation, you will need the following ready- a) display board, b) research paper printed and in a folder, c) science fair packet/logbook complete, d)  oral presentation (you make use notecards, if you desire), and e) dressed professionally.  You will need to sign up in this Google Doc for your date.  (Do not change people’s names.  I see edits and who made them.)  If you wish to present next Wednesday, November 22nd, please sign up to do so.  There will be extra credit for this.   The rubric for the presentations is found at this link.

Biology- November 16

Hello student!  Here are the reading ?’s and video to watch for today.  Please answer the video questions in your folder.

Two announcements:

  1.  You should be working on your display boards.  (See guidelines here.)   Science fair project presentations will be the week of November 26-30.  You should aim for a 7-10 minute presentation. For the presentation, you will need the following ready- a) display board, b) research paper printed and in a folder, c) science fair packet/logbook complete, d)  oral presentation (you make use notecards, if you desire), and e) dressed professionally.  You will need to sign up in this Google Doc for your date.  (Do not change people’s names.  I see edits and who made them.)  If you wish to present next Wednesday, November 22nd, please sign up to do so.  There will be extra credit for this.   The rubric for the presentations is found at this link.
  2.  The test for the cellular energy unit will be on Wednesday of next week (November 22nd).  You will have a review to work on in class on Monday.   Please start to review.

Reading ?’s 4.5, Part I

Reading ?’s 4.5, Part II

Anaerobic Respiration Video

Questions to be answered in your notebook.

  1.  Discuss why this is a false statement.  When organizations do not have enough oxygen, their body stops working.
  2.   What is not involved in anaerobic respiration that is involved in cellular (aerobic) respiration?
  3.   Why is anaerobic respiration less efficient than cellular (aerobic) respiration?
  4.  What happens if lactic acid builds up in a muscle?
  5.   In other organisms (such as the plants mentioned in the video), how do they do anaerobic respiration?

Biology- November 14

Hello students!  Please watch these videos and answer the questions in your Cellular Energy folder.

Videos I and II- Relationships between Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis Lab-

1)  What does the bromothymol blue indicator show when in the presence of carbon dioxide?

2)  From video one, why does the fluid turn yellow when the teacher blew into it?

3)  From video one, why does only one test tube turn back to blue after 24 hours?

4)  From video two,  for each of the jars A-D, write an explanation of the processes that occurred          in the jar and why each of them had a different color at the end.

Video III- Ameoba Sister

1)  What type of energy do cellular processes require?

2)  What molecule is necessary to begin the process of cellular respiration?

3)  What are the three steps of cellular respiration?

4)  What is the role of NADH and FADH2?

Design-A-Cell STEM project Lab Requirements
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)
Procedure:  List the step-by-step, detailed instructions for testing your hypothesis.  (12 points)
Data:  Create a table which shares the data taken from your lab.  Be sure it’s clearly labelled and has the proper units for all measurements.  (6 points)
Conclusion:  Based on your data, draw a conclusion about each of your hypotheses.  Describe how this experiment demonstrates osmosis.  If there are any errors, discuss these and how you would redesign your cell to create the desired result.  (8 points)
