Finish the cell/microscopy worksheet.
Be sure to know the cell organelles, their functions and the cell theory.
We will begin talking about classification next class.
Finish the two chemical formula/name worksheets.
Be sure you have supported your learning by reading carefully the textbook sections 4.1 and 4.2.
Please complete the practice problems on p. 187, 188, and 190 of the text book.
Be sure you have worked on 4.1 and 4.2 in the workbook and have attempted to complete them.
We will continue going over answers in class.
Period 2-3: please complete worksheets given in class.
Continue with your reading on Biological Molecules (Unit A in workbook as well as Ch. 2 in textbook).
Work on the periodic table handout as a review only. Not for handing in.
Be sure you have read up to 4.2 in the text.
Continue with reading of Unit B (workbook) and Ch. 15 (textbook).
Finish new microscope problems and cell chart.
Finish the microscope crossword and the microscope calculations worksheet.
Study Unit B in the workbook (Classification) and read text chapter 15. We will review the cell and then begin Classification at the end of next week.
Read and be able to answer the questions for Unit A in the workbook.
Answer the questions given in class on feedback loops:
Explain the following factors as they relate to feedback loops in homeostasis:
Afferent and efferent feedback loops
As always, please list references for any and all sources you use.
Finish the diagram of the atom (see p. 170 or the workbook for some good examples). Label the diagram, and list as many facts/points about the atom and atomic bonding as you are able.
Complete section 4.2 in the workbook.
Go to periodictable.com. You were assigned a number in class. That number corresponds to the atomic number of the element you will research on the periodictable.com site. For example, if you were assigned #1 by me in class today, that means your element is atomic #1, Hydrogen. If you are #2, that is Helium, and so on.
You will make a mini poster for next class. On an 8.5 X 11 inch piece of blank paper (no lines), provide the following information:
On the mini poster, show:
the element name,
whether it is a metal or non-metal,
its period (horizontal row on the periodic table)
its group(family) (vertical column on the periodic table),
whether it is a solid, liquid, or gas at standard temperature and pressure (STP),
some of its characteristics,
and applications/uses (what do we use that element for?)
Include at least one image.
Please be sure to include references on the mini poster (list all sources that you used).
Read the remainder of Appendix C (p. 10 – 11 in reference section of textbook) on the care and use of the microscope.
Finish the microscope crossword. Clue 17 across is difficult to read on the handout. It is “1 X 106 microns (or micrometers).”
Be sure you have read and understood 5-1 to 5-3 in the textbook.
