From our class mind map we have highlighted that the role of water is linked to photosynthesis.

We have defined key structures and chemical pathways for all plants.

Today, we introduce the idea of “tissues”

We will look for phloem and xylem and how they change their arrangement from root to leaf.

Looking at text material and videos, lets start to build a vocabulary list.

2.   Alternation of Generations

3.   Intro to photosynthesis

 

 
Topic

Number One

Mitosis verses Meiosis

The best strategy is to make a venn diagram to show how both processes are linked to reproduction.

This is a good source of data to make diagram

http://www.yourgenome.org/facts/mitosis-versus-meiosis

 

With plants, the genetic material shifts from being diploid (two pairs or 2n) to haploid (half the ploidy and n). Why? To create a chance for diversity to occur. Meiosis is a process in which changes in genetic material can be shared.

Mitosis is pretty much a copying process to insure that once a cell grows to a specific size and age, it can make two new duplicate copies.

 
Topic

Number Two

Remember the term “sessile”? If you are an organism that may be limited in movement, you need to come up with a strategy that will allow you to adapt.

History of world and pathology assignment

Biology 11 : History of Pathology Time line

There is something known as the “butterfly affect”, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_effect

The premise is that one small change can have a large affect. In Biology, a simple observation can sometimes lead to a discovery that save millions of lives. How could how one event affects another? How is it that rapid changes in on pursuit of knowledge can be linked to world history.

Using the following table you are to compare World History to the history of medicine and pathology.

  • In History of Pathology and Medicine you should included :
  • You should seek out the history, pathology and epidemics linked to HIV virus and Spanish Flu, E. Coli and Staphylcoccus, and Malaria and Trypanosoma.
  • You should also include new discoveries for curing disease, and the names of those who brought forth the discovery. ( examples: Morgani, Jenner, Pasteur, Walter Reed, Dr. Don Francis, Dr. Robert Gallo, Francoise Barre-Snoussi)

In world events, you should keep track of:

  • majour wars on the planet, changes in transportation and trades, periods of renaissance, revolutions (social and industrial), changes in human transportation and changes in world economy ( examples: world disasters such as Potato famine, Panama Canal, World Wars 1 and 2, and the Industrial revolution.

You are to use: Online resources (please cite your bibliography), including “Wikipedia” and

World History Date History of Pathology and Medicine

Comparative Questions

  1. How is the changes of movement of people linked to how diseases moved?
  2. Was the Spanish flu really from Spain?
  3. What 10 year period of time showed the greatest change both in world history and pathology?
  4. Hypothesize why this may have occurred.
  5. What three world events had the greatest affect upon pathology and medicine?
  6. What five events in the history of pathology may have had the greatest affect upon humanity?

How to study for this exam

 

There are three main focal points.

  • Classification
  • DNA and it’s role in evolution
  • The six activities of life.

 

This exam is focusing on how two different sources of disease can enter your body and what happens.

It is also focusing on classification of a living a non living things.
