Study for test: rDNA and ATP.
Bring case study handout to class, and be sure to go over answers for the pre-class assignment.
Work on the Pre-Assignment for the case study, FOXP2 gene and speech. Study for the test on rDNA and ATP (19 December 2013). See pages 500 – 509 and Chapter 7.
Bring the “Biology 12 Questions” from the last test day (mutations, law of thermodynamics, etc).
Test on ATP and rDNA will be on Tuesday, 17 Dec 2013.
Continue with the rDNA review sheet and read the section on rDNA (500-503) in text.
Remember the online resources that compliment the textbook (link in earlier post).
Continue working on the ATP review sheet (second page of notes) and be sure that you have read the textbook sections.
Complete the “Biology 12 Questions” that I put on the moodle site today and projected in class. We will discuss these next week, so there is time to work on them. Be sure you check out the resources on the Inquiry Into Life website and go to Chapter 7.
Study for Enzymes Test. Notes, Problem sets, Chapter 6, other resources (online resources that I provided the link for), etc.
I will also have a few questions from earlier chapters (cell organelles/functions, biological molecules, DNA etc, transcription, translation, replication).
Work on ATP review sheet.
What’s Your Type event – Monday 25 November in class. Great opportunity to learn about blood and blood type from the experts.
We will be having a special presentation from Canadian Blood Services called “What’s Your Type.”
We will learn about blood type, blood donation, and will have the opportunity to find out our blood type, if we wish. (Note – this is completely voluntary and involves only a small finger-poke, for those who wish to find out their blood type.)
**IMPORTANT NOTE** If you are 16 years of age or younger, a signed parental consent form is required for the blood typing. Please download the attached form, print, and bring the signed consent form to class, if you wish to have your blood type tested. Anyone 17 years of age or older can sign on their own behalf.

Enzymes test is on 3 December. Please also bring the Insulin Case Study.
Continue working on Enzymes review sheets.
Ensure that you have read Ch. 6 (enzymes) and work on the enzymes worksheet.
Continue reading Ch. 6 (enzymes). Use the online resources provided (see earlier blog) to support your learning in this area.
