READING

For each topic there will be a quiz based in part on the reading.  Make sure you keep up with the Agenda page for the schedule, since the quizzes may not coincide with the class lecture/activity schedule.  You can learn much of the same material from other web resources – if you don’t like “your” text book, I can recommend other online resources (or just Google the topic). You can also watch YouTube videos on the subjects. The best out there are done by Richard Anderson and can be found as “Bozeman Biology.” All that said, the actual quizzes are based on readings from Biology-Miller & Levine.

Tentative Reading Schedule:

Topic VII  - Evolution [Quiz 10/13] Reading 16:4, 26:3, 31:2

2017-2018 Green-Paper-Policy

In an attempt to reduce the amount of paper I can misplace and to reduce the number of trees cut down for my classes I am instituting the following policy.

At the end of each marking period (if there are sufficient written assignments to warrant this) there will be an extra credit grade given to those students who submit their work via email.  Near the end of the marking period I will search my drg.atm@gmail.com archive and assign extra credit points based on a subjective sense of the percentage of possible assignments (it isn’t meaningful to submit a take home test or worksheet via email) that have been submitted via email.  (As a consequence of how this is done, you MUST sign your complete name in your emails in the body of the email. I sometimes search by first name, sometimes by last name.)

You can’t lose by submitting via email.  The only caveat (warning) is that digital submissions are easier to check for plagiarism J .


You want to read the "Don't Panic" document (always a  work in progress, but, up-to-date as of June 2017)
Homework Email address:  DrG.ATM@gmail.com

Shared Google Drive:https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B0r2l9_tFA_FT0pRcTZZQXJHUmM?usp=sharing

This contains the most up-to-date versions of the benchmarks, an essential content outline, a vocabulary list, and a list of Latin & Greek prefixes, suffixes and stems - all of which will also help  you succeed.   It will eventually contain lab handouts, worksheets etc.

General Information and advice:


OnLine Biology Book from Maricopa (Arizona) Community College (Lower than AP Bio, but above Honors Biology) really good background and review).
http://www2.estrellamountain.edu/faculty/farabee/biobk/biobooktoc.html

Writing Conclusions

Writing lab reports (general format and suggestions)

OnLine video reviews (Youtube)  - some are above the level of honors biology, but, they can really help.
Bozeman-Youtube channel (obviously it doesn't work well in school) http://www.youtube.com/user/bozemanbiology#p/c/4A0F9177F62B4435
Crash Course - Youtube channel ((obviously it doesn't work well in school) Covers biology, ecology, and chemistry http://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse/videos
Kahn Academy - http://www.khanacademy.org/#biology


This course is correlated to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards which can be found at:http://www.floridastandards.org/Standards/FLStandardSearch.aspx

In general we will be following the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Pacing Guide for Honors Biology.  
The benchmarks/objectitves from 2012-13  (which may or may not be the same for 2017-18)  can be found  HBio-EOC Benchmarks
You need a reader for Adobe pdf files, which can be obtained for free from www.adobe.com

These are great pages for EOC review, but you can use them during the year... Review pages and sample questions from Escambia County.
