FYI-Seniors- Sunny Isles Beach Scholarship (see Mrs. Rodriguez

FYI- Deadline to register for the February ACT is January 12th!!!

 


I want to try a relatively new feature of Khan academy which allows me to assign topics and then to follow your progress.

I will eventually require everyone to sign-up, but, for now (at least right now) it is going to be extra credit. 

I need some kids to sign up for the “class” so that I can assign some work.  (I can’t assign anything until I have students signed up.) So, if you sign up before 12/22 you will get extra credit. If you sign up before 1/7/2018 (11:59PM) you will get extra credit (less, but still some). If you go through the assigned video lessons you will get more credit. AND, if you email me a review of the process and of the content you will get even more extra credit. All this extra credit would be due by 1/7/2018 11:59PM.

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 Campbell Biology (the online text in Mastering!).

Tentative Reading Schedule:

No reading quiz 10/9 However, there will be a “practicum” on macromolecues

No reading quiz 10/12 However, there will be a “practicum” on macromolecues

Cells [Quiz -7- 10/18] Chapter 6

Science Fair?


Update 10/5 - Due to circumstances beyond my control (a dry run for the PSATs during 5th period), the Fat Lab is being postponed until next week. 

Long advance warning- There will be a test on the evolution unit on 10/16. It will be all multiple choice. No, I don't know how many questions yet.

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 Campbell Biology (the online text in Mastering!).

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.

You can find the schedule as well as lots of other stuff (some of it useful) in the Don't Panic Book.  (always a work in progress, but up-to-date as of June 2017).


ALL Email (HOMEWORK AND CONTACT!) address:  DrG.ATM@gmail.com

Annotated Web Links       

Shared Google Drive folder with previous FRQs and various handouts etc. (Google "Drive") - includes single  file with multiple vocabulary lists, the highlighted Table of Contents to Campbell etc. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B0r2l9_tFA_FRHNKeGIyUEdGcTA?usp=sharing

The folder includes assignments/notes etc. from previous years.

Last year (2016-17) I posted most of the notes and handouts to OneNote. I can't give you access to those files until you are actually in my class.
