Honors B-day 4/3/17

Today, we reviewed chromosomes and sexual vs. asexual reproduction briefly. We went over the PowerPoint below and previewed vocabulary for the upcoming material. The important terminology was: autosome, somatic, meiosis, mitosis, haploid, diploid, gametes, chromosome, homologous chromosome, sister chromatids, and fertilization.

A Day Classes for 3/8

1A and 4A

We review the process of meiosis and compared in to mitosis. For a power point review click here: Chromosomes Meiosis Reinforcement Worksheet

B Day Classes for 3/3

1B and 2B

Reviewed Meiosis Simulation and  Meiosis. Check out a power point of that click the following link: Chromosomes Meiosis Reinforcement Worksheet

Next, we compared Mitosis and Meiosis. Check the previous powerpoint for a review mitoisvsmeiosis

Next, we did the Potato head genetics lab. For an extra copy click: Potato Head lab15 This can be made up after school if you missed it.

4B

We started out reviewing student computer simulation of  mitosis and turned in the homework worksheet 5.2 Mitosis & Cytokinesis.

For a power point that reviews mitosis: Mitosis

Next, we reviewed chromosome number and important vocabulary: somatic, gamete, diploid, haploid, autosome

For that chromosome number : Chromosomes and Meiosis

The accompanying worksheet is here: Chromosomes Meiosis Reinforcement Worksheet

We then did the Meiosis Simulation: Click Here for Link

Finally, reviewed Meiosis Simulation and  Meiosis. Check out a power point of that click the following link: Chromosomes Meiosis Reinforcement Worksheet

Next, we compared Mitosis and Meiosis. Check the previous powerpoint for a review and look at above graphic.

 

A Day Classes for 3/2/16

1A and 4A

Started class with a review of the chromosomes models student constructed during last class.

Exit ticket to activity was to describe a chromosome using the terms chromatid, centromere, DNA and histones. (10 summative points)

Next, we watched a video clip where students had to compare asexual and sexual reproduction and write down the pros and cons of each in their notebooks.

We discussed both of these topics.A review of that discussion and notes taken can be found here: Cell Reproduction

Next, students look at the stages of mitosis from an online computer simulation.

Click here for the simulation.Draw what is happening in each stage and also write a description.
