Finish Drosophila diagram and label it. Be sure it is detailed and of high quality.
Label the head, thorax, abdomen, compound eye, wing, sex comb (if present), bristles, any other anatomy that is visible and that you can recognize.
Title the drawing and underline the title. Indicate whether the specimen is a male or female. Include your name, block, and the date.
Complete the flower structure diagram from p. 212 on the green sheet provided. Be sure to label all the reproductive parts.
Complete p. 30 – 35 in workbook, using section 6.2 in the text ( 204 – 224).
Read the 2 handouts on drosophila and complete these questions. Be sure you have completed the Phylum Arthropoda and 4 Sub-Phyla unifying characteristics. These are the features shared by the organisms in each of these groups, not just a list of example organisms from each group.
It is possible that there will be a quiz on the readings next class.
Finish the diagram from p. 205 (sea urchin fertilization and early development). Be sure the diagram is labelled:
A – fertilization: sperm meets egg; sperm nucleus enters egg.
B – zygote – diploid cell that results from fertilization
C – 1st mitotic division – 2 cells
D – 2nd mitotic division – 4 cells
E – 3rd mitotic division – 8 cells
Be sure you have finished and handed in the meiosis diagram (see p. 191), labelled. This was assigned earlier and has been collected.
Complete the lab (due 20 and 21 Nov, depending on the block). See previous post for full instructions, and ask if you need clarification.
Complete the enzymes practice problems, and the reading of chapter 6.
Finish the unifying characteristics of Phylum Arthropods, as well as the 4 subphyla (Trilobita, Uniramia, Crustacea, and Chelicerate). Just give point form information describing the main characteristics of each group.
Finish the drosophila diagram (labelled).
Study for the test on genetics/case study next class.
Begin reading chapter 6 and use this link for the chapter outline.
Attempt the enzymes problems (key has been provided).
Continue working on the diffusion/osmosis lab (information and guidelines are in previous blog post. Due 20 Nov.
Finish the reading about asexual reproduction handout, as part of your studying for chapter 5 test next class. Golden Rice and GMOs will also be on the test.
Review all notes, textbook and workbook sections, activities, etc.
Study for membranes test (chapter 4 and all relevant notes, case studies, handouts, etc). Practice tests will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, 7 and 8 Nov, depending on the block.
Study for genetics practice test (mostly chapter 9 and the problems we did in class, also read chapter 10) (Tuesday and Wednesday, 7 and 8 November, depending on the block).
