As of Monday morning, only slightly more than half of Mr. Hatfield's Biology students had handed in their 100-point project, the "Travel Brochure to the Cell." This was due on Friday, Nov. 8th. This item will NOT be accepted after Monday, Nov. 18th....which is also (not coincidentally) the date of the Cell Unit Test.
A study guide has been given in class today to prepare for Monday's exam, and a Study Session to prepare for that test will occur after school on Thursday, Nov. 14th.
Since quarter progress reports are being lifted from district servers this afternoon (Wednesday the 13th), students who have yet to complete their Project may see a drastic downtick in their grade, because their Project will show as a 'zero' and they do not yet have a test grade on ATLAS.
To help students prepare for the test, I am attaching the recent sets of Power Points. Students should use these to complete their Cornell Notes, which they are allowed to use on the day of the exam---if completed (summaries, questions and comments in the extended margin, other evidence of work).
For students who still need to complete the previous Unit notes, please look at the previous post on 'Cells and Their Organelles" as well as this one. CLICK ON THE IMAGE IF YOU NEED THESE NOTES!
POWER POINT: THE FLUID MOSAIC MODEL OF THE CELL MEMBRANE
The Power Point summarizing the Cell Cycle, based on the first two sections of Chapter 10, is available here:
This Power Point contains an outline of photosynthesis, relating it to the 'Great Circle' of chemical reactions that all living things participate it (autotrophs and heterotrophs!), reactions which recycle the raw materials that life requires. Much of this material is covered in the first two sections of Chapter 8 in the Dragonfly Book.
The Power Point for Photosynthesis, Part I, is available here.
A PDF file of the Lecture Guide based on these last two Power Points can be downloaded here.
