Biology 11 Martin 9-10 March 2016

Be sure you can answer all the prokaryote/Moneral questions posted earlier on this blog and covered in class, and that you are familiar with the bacterial infections we studied as well as the pond case study.

Study the immune system handout and be prepared to discuss next class.

Science 10 2-3 Martin 7 March 2016 and 1-1 8 March 2016

Lab Write-up for Activity 10-1A (p. 425 in text) is due at the start of class on Wednesday, 9 March and Thursday, 10 March, respectively.

The report must:

  • Be typed (12 font, Times New Roman) and printed/stapled before class, ready to hand in at the start bell (8:40 am)
  • include the first and last names of all group members (max. 4 persons), date and class period
  • Include Title, introduction, purpose, materials, procedure, data/observations, “what did you find out questions,” and conclusion
  • include underlined headings/subheadings
  • reflect the changes to the materials list and procedures that we made in class


  • Materials: omit the lamp; add one 250mL beaker, 100mL warm water, paper towel
  • procedure: instead of using a lamp to heat the water, thermometer was put into cold water first, and then warm water
  • “What did you find out” questions:
    • Question 1 (a) ¬†should read “when you put the thermometer in the cold water”
    • Question 1 (b) should read “when you put the thermometer in the warm water”
    • Question 3: Omit

Biology 11 Martin 1-4, 2-1, 2-2 1/2 March 2016

Please give the progress report to parent/guardian, and return signed copy to me next class (Thursday for 2-1 and 2-2 and Tuesday for 1-4).

Research the bacterial infection/disease that you were assigned, according to your group numbers for the jigsaw activity. For example, if your group was numbered “1” and you worked on Moneran question “1,” then you will research number 1, below. The bacterial infections/diseases are:

  1. Rocky mountain spotted fever
  2. Tuberculosis
  3. Impetigo
  4. Legionnaire’s disease
  5. Botulism
  6. Anthrax
  7. Diptheria

You will need to research an outbreak of the disease/infection, when and where it happened, who was infected/became ill (eg. elderly people, children, etc), symptoms, mode of transmission (how they became infected; eg. person-to-person, drinking contaminated water, bodily fluids, etc), effects on those infected and on the community, and what species (scientific name) of bacteria causes the disease/infection. Be sure to include references cited.

Be sure to read the sections of workbook and textbook (ch. 17) on Monerans.

Finish case study “A typical cold.” Modifications: Part 1 does not need to be a full 1-page report, as long as all the relevant information is included. Part II – Your list of learning issues and group members assigned was due at the end of the period today, in class.

Be sure that you arrive on Tuesday with all the research for the learning issues assigned completed (include citations). Bring 2 copies: 1 will be handed in to me at the start of the period, the other is for you to use during the class. You will be working on part III with your group and relying on the research you bring with you on the individual learning issues.

Be sure you have finished the reading/review package for the Respiratory system and have started the reading for the circulatory system.

Respiratory system diagram was due and collected today, 2 March 2016.
