Biology-Final Cumulative Project 2019 Due: during your specific class period on _______________________ This is your FINAL PROJECT! This is also CUMULATIVE PROJECT (meaning, the work given is on a higher level, and I expect the work to be complete, informative, accurate, organized, and presentable). This project consists of 9 sections. It is important that you use your time wisely, and begin working immediately. Waiting until May to complete this is a grave mistake. This must be typed; 12 font (handwritten projects will not be accepted). Double spaced You must include a cover page (name, due date, class) You must include a table of contents indicating where each component is located MUST INCLUDE PICTURES AND GRAPHICS You must include a reference page (projects without a works cited will not be accepted; this is indicative of plagiarizing). Materials suggested for the written portion this project (not mandatory): One (1), three-ringed binder with clear cover sleeves. (½” or 1” depending on need) OR, three-pronged folder. Sheet protectors You may submit your projects ahead of time for EARLY GRADING AND FEEDBACK! This will allow you to take your projects back home, and correct them. Early Grading is from April 24-May 22, 2019 *Full points will only be rewarded to work that is accurate, complete, and shows proficiency and conceptual understanding of concepts. Biology-Final Cumulative Project 2019 Checklist and Instructions: 1. Begin working on this assignment IMMEDIATELY 2. Ask your instructor for help in a timely fashion (do not wait until the end of May) 3. Save all work!!! 4. Open a GoogleDocs account (this will save you SO MUCH time) 5. Print Documents ahead of time. 6. Submit early for grading. Early grading takes place on April 24-May 24, 2019. 7. PAY ATTENTION TO THE RUBRIC!

Education required (type of degree, and duration) b. Salary c. Special Training d. Duties of the job e. Demand for this type of job f. Pictures detailing what they do (include sources in works cited) Part 3: Genetic Disorders Instructions: Choose four of the following genetic disorders to research. We have discussed some of them in class already. Create four separate informational documents (flyers, word documents, graphics, PowerPoint, etc.) that detail the following. Down’s Syndrome (Trisomy 21), Sickle-Cell Anemia, Hemophilia, Huntington’s Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Tay-Sachs Disease, Phenylketonuria (PKU), Turner Syndrome, Klinefelter Syndrome. 1.

Part 4: Cancer Research and Patient Analysis *Full points will only be rewarded to work that is accurate, complete, and shows proficiency and conceptual understanding of concepts. Biology-Final Cumulative Project 2019 Students will choose from 3 case studies, annotate, and write a one-page summary in their own words. In addition, there will be a patient analysis: 1. Research the possible modes of treatment (ppt presentation), and decide which is best for each of the patients. 2. Consider medical costs, insurance, and health risks. Part 5: Conserving our Environment a. Provide information on environmental issues caused by human influences on our ecosystem. You may create your own brochure or document on environmental awareness. How human population growth affects our supply of resources; and how death keeps a healthy population balance within our environment. Burning of fossil fuels Habitat destruction How we can conserve our natural resources. The EPA’s role in environmental conservation and protection b. Animal Behavior and Relationships Examples of a parasitic relationship (2 examples) Examples of commensalism (2 examples) Examples of mutualism (2 examples) c. Cycles (Carbon, Nitrogen Cycle, Water) Find a picture or that details each cycle Analyze the picture and tell what happens during each cycle Part 6: Biomolecules Mini-Project Provide real life examples of the four basic organic compounds (biomolecules) Pictures are mandatory of each. a. What are the subunits (building blocks) of proteins? b. What are the subunits (building blocks) of carbohydrates? c. What are the subunits (building blocks) of lipids? d. What are the subunits (building blocks) of nucleic acids? e. Proteins (3 examples) f. Carbohydrates (3 examples) g. Lipids (3 examples) h. Nucleic Acids (there are only 2 examples!) *Full points will only be rewarded to work that is accurate, complete, and shows proficiency and conceptual understanding of concepts. Biology-Final Cumulative Project 2019 Part 7 : Take- Home Essential Essay Questions Must be typed; must be answered completely. Partial answers receive partial credit.
