Class Summary - Students started out today with a short 5 question quiz on the cell cycle. Then, we did an ungraded review worksheet that will be a good assessment of if we have 'gotten' the information up to this point. Students who did not feel confident about their answers should schedule a time to talk with me, use the review sites on the website, read the book or study notes. We are moving on so if a student does not understand something it is on them to take the initiative. I am here every morning at 8:00, 1st hour prep and 2nd hour study hall. I also have HS lunch hours and HAMR time. Then we used a guided tour of DNA, chromosomes, proteins, and genes to help us understand better what we are talking about. The 'tour' can be found here: learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/basics/oldtour/(Click on DNA, Genes, Protein and Chromosome tab). When completed, students should go here to review organelles https://www.wisc-online.com/learn/natural-science/life-science/ap11403/a-typical-animal-cell
Homework - Test is tentatively scheduled for 10/19 (next Thursday). Students should know the following to be prepared for the test: 1. Cell Diagram / Labeling (No word bank) 2. Organelle Functions (No word bank) 3. What happens during each stage of interphase 4. DNA Structure 5. DNA Replication 6. Protein Synthesis 7. Phases of Mitosis (PMAT and What Happens) 8. BASICS of Meiosis 9. Movement across a membrane
Objectives - Students will learn the basis for protein synthesis.
