Daily Objectives

By AP Biology
  • The student will be able to describe how fermentation and cellular respiration use energy from biological macromolecules to produce ATP
  • The student will know that cell respiration in eukaryotes involves a series of coordinated enzyme-catalyzed reactions that capture energy from biological macromolecules

Agenda

By AP Biology

  • Cell Structure and Function exam on Wednesday
  • Tutoring after school on Tuesday this week to support your preparation for the exam on Wednesday
  • Review Unit exam 1; return test materials; do not copy test materials

Agenda

By AP Biology
  • Osmosis and Diffusion lab gallery walk; set up your display at your lab station; find out who you are grading and where their trifold is; when completed, turn in your forms to Mr. Mapplebeck

Agenda

By AP Biology
  • Diffusion and osmosis lab: procedure 1
  • Lab Trifold due on Friday October 15; we will have a gallery walk where each individual will evaluate 3 other individuals; collective score will be lab grade

Agenda

By AP Biology
  • Test Tomorrow: know your water molecules, properties of organic compounds, macromolecules and enzymes!
  • Organelle w.s.: write the functions of each organelle using the template provided; final submission must be typed; due Friday

Agenda

Agenda

By AP Biology
  • Use the water model kits to demonstrate a knowledge of the type of bonds that affect the properties of water: polar and non-polar covalent bond, ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds; adhesion, cohesion, transpiration, capillarity; diagram and submit photo via Edmodo
  • Use the chemical model kits to demonstrate a knowledge of carbon and its properties; How can carbon form single, double, and triple bonds? Make models simple organic compounds (methane, ethane, propane, 1-butene, benzene); form isomers; form functional groups (see page 64-65).  Again, you should diagram, photograph, and submit via Edmodo.
