Our first major at home assignment is the Science Multicultural Project - November 1st due date
It is considered an 70% test grade
Part 1 30%- (Chose a scientist, draw or print (in color) a flag from the country the scientist is from, summarize the scientists' main contribution and give the birth and death of your scientist)
Part 2 40% - In Open Ended Format - as in paragraph format - Your scientist has impacted not just his/her culture or community but the world at large. Imagine life without your scientists; contribution. What would life be like?)
Part 3 30% - All about you - where are you from, what's your nationality (draw or print a flag (in color) list national past time, export/import or fun fact of that country), do you have brother/sisters/family life?, favorite color? band? fun fact about you?
Marking Period Ends November 12 - All make up work due November 10 in order to have ample time to grade it.
Edible Alternative Assessment - november 5/6
Unit 1 Assessment November 1/4
CER writing assignment November 5/6
Unit 2 Notes
Cell Theory: Cells are the building blocks of life. All living things have cells. Only cells can make other cells.
Cells are made up of 4 major macromolecules.
There are two types of cells. Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic.
Eukaryotic – has a nucleus and membrane bound organelle
Prokaryotic – does not have a nucleus or membrane bound organelles
There are two different types of organisms. Multicellular and unicellular.
Multicellular has many cells, unicellular has only one cell. There are many advantages to being multicellular. If one cell dies, the organism still lives. It can live longer, and grow bigger as well. Multicellular organisms are complex and require cells that are specialized and work together.
Organelles: organs inside a cell
Membrane: Acts like a door, lets things in and out of a cell
Nucleus: The brain of the cell, contains the DNA
Mitochondria: The power in a cell (like a battery), ATP (energy) is created here
Ribosomes – make protein
ER (smooth and rough): processes ribosomes – like school – the ribosomes go through it and end up in the golgi body – rough processes ribosomes, smoothe processes lipids
Golgi Body: Process and packs proteins and gives them a more specialized job (like college)
Lysosome: Digests waste in the cell (like a stomach)
Cytoplasm – juice or jelly inside the cell that facilitates movement
Vacuole – sac like structure that holds waste/water
Vesicle – ribosomes wrapped in the ER/Golgi Body
Plant Cell Only
Chloroplasts – plants source of food
Cell Wall – added support for cells found only in plants
Structure and Function – The structure of an organism is related to the function of its parts. The shape of the organ/organ system/cell/tissue is related to its function (or job).
Shape and function are directly related. The way something is shaped or structured can affect how well it works.
The organization of living things:
Cell – basic unit of life
Tissues – a bunch of similar cells working together to perform a similar function
Organ – many tissues working together to perform a similar function
Organ System – many organs working together to perform a similar task
Organism – a complicated living thing, which uses multiple organ systems with specialized cells to create homeostasis.
Three advantages to being multicellular – multicellular organisms Live Longer, Have Specialized Cells and can Grow Larger.
