Attention Biology Students- Evolution Documentary

October23

The Evolution From Ape to Man- Full Documentary-History Channel

Scientists from the mid-nineteenth century have searched for the fossil remains of the “missing link” in evolution – the half-man, half-ape that would explain where mankind came from. But over the last century and a half, it has been the idea of what a missing link is that has evolved. The history of this scientific quest – peopled with fanatics, frauds, amateurs, professionals, the lucky, the unlucky, the unfairly neglected and the undeservedly praised – is the subject of this documentary. Reenactments depict scientists making their discoveries and then stretch back hundreds of thousands, even millions, of years to depict the typical lives of our human and human-like ancestors. Interviews with leading scientists fill in the details.  apetoman_study_guide-1zo494o

This Week In Chemistry!

October23

Week of 10/23/2017 (tentative & subject to change)
Monday: More Stoichiometry
Tuesday: Stoichiometry Quiz; more Limiting Reactants practice
Wednesday: Limiting Reactants Quiz; more Limiting Reactants practice
Thursday: All Review & Practice for Unit Test
Friday: Stoichiometry/Mole Unit Test

SC3. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how the Law of Conservation of Matter is used to determine chemical composition in compounds and chemical reactions.

c. Use mathematics and computational thinking to apply concepts of the mole and Avogadro’s number to conceptualize and calculate
• percent composition
• empirical/molecular formulas
• mass, moles, and molecules relationships
• molar volumes of gases
d. Use mathematics and computational thinking to identify and solve different types of reaction stoichiometry problems (i.e., mass to moles, mass to mass, moles to moles, and percent yield) using significant figures.
(Clarification statement: For elements c and d emphasis is on use of mole ratios to compare quantities of reactants or products and on assessing students’ use of mathematical thinking and not on memorization and rote application of problem-solving techniques.)
e. Plan and carry out an investigation to demonstrate the conceptual principle of limiting reactants.

This Week In Biology!

October23

Week of 10/23/17 (tentative & subject to change)
Monday: “Ape to Man” Video Documentary and Discussions
Tuesday: Notes on Darwin and the History of Evolutionary Theory
Wednesday: Hardy Weinberg Equation and how it relates to Alleles
Thursday: Evolutionary Mechanisms and how changes come about
Friday: Continue Evolutionary History and Hominid Species
***Remember you are quizzed daily. Be Prepared***

SB6. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to assess the theory of evolution.
a. Construct an explanation of how new understandings of Earth’s history, the emergence of new species from pre-existing species, and our understanding of genetics have influenced our understanding of biology.
b. Analyze and interpret data to explain patterns in biodiversity that result from speciation.
c. Construct an argument using valid and reliable sources to support the claim that evidence from comparative morphology (analogous vs. homologous structures), embryology, biochemistry (protein sequence) and genetics support the theory that all living organisms are related by way of common descent.
d. Develop and use mathematical models to support explanations of how undirected genetic changes in natural selection and genetic drift have led to changes in populations of organisms.
(Clarification statement: Element is intended to focus on basic statistical and graphic analysis. Hardy Weinberg would be an optional application to address this element.)
e. Develop a model to explain the role natural selection plays in causing biological resistance (e.g., pesticides, antibiotic resistance, and influenza vaccines).
