Attention Biology Students-Classification

November27

Students if you did not quite understand or need a refresher on understanding classification and how to use dichotomous keys to identify organisms, check out the link(s) below. (Link(s) found online & posted for your use as study material. Information not my own; used for educational purposes only). The link(s) has notes in which you can use to help you prepare and practice for a quiz/test. I am available in (room 9304/9317 Monday & Wednesday in the PM) if you need additional assistance. Do not wait until the day/night before a test to learn material!!!

Monday: Bioman Activity Assigned; Cladograms practice and more practice
Tuesday: Dichotomous Keys activities
Wednesday: Order of Living Things; Classification notes and activities

SB4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to illustrate the organization of
interacting systems within single-celled and multi-celled organisms.
a. Construct an argument supported by scientific information to explain patterns in structures
and function among clades of organisms, including the origin of eukaryotes by
endosymbiosis. Clades should include:
 archaea
 bacteria
 eukaryotes
 fungi
 plants
 animals
(Clarification statement: This is reflective of 21st century classification schemes and nested
hierarchy of clades and is intended to develop a foundation for comparing major groups of
organisms. The term ‘protist’ is useful in describing those eukaryotes that are not within the
animal, fungal or plant clades but the term does not describe a well-defined clade or a natural
taxonomic group.)
b. Analyze and interpret data to develop models (i.e., cladograms and phylogenetic trees) based
on patterns of common ancestry and the theory of evolution to determine relationships
among major groups of organisms.
c. Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence to compare and contrast the
characteristics of viruses and organisms.

Attention Biology Students: ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

November12

Announcement from Ms. Chapman:

PARENTS AND STUDENTS. This Saturday, NOVEMBER 17TH, I will open up ALL of the Schoology quizzes and the students can take the ones they missed. The quizzes will be open on this day and this day only until 11:59 PM. They will have to record their scores and give them to me when they come back after break. The students will need to see if they can get on Schoology early on in the week to see if they can as I am going to WV to see my father over break.

FINAL OPPORTUNITY!!!

This Week In Biology! 11/12

November12

Week of 11/12/18 (tentative & subject to change)
Monday: Macroevolution, Adaptive Radiation, Convergent/Divergent, 5 proofs of evolution
Tuesday: continue evolution notes and activities
Wednesday: continue evolution notes and activities
Thursday: continue evolution notes and activities; Cladograms; Review
Friday: Evolution Unit Test
***Remember you can be quizzed daily. Be Prepared***
***Remember to always login and check Schoology***

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).
