HONORS BIOLOGY SCHEDULE 1 UNIT 1 Week 1: Chemistry and water including: Atoms, elements, molecules, compounds Valence electrons Types of chemical bonds Characteristics of water Water lab HW I: DUE ON Tuesday September 9th. HW is to be completed on a separate paper. It is to be neat and legible reflecting the time you have spent on it. Questions are to be answered in complete sentences. Paragraphs should indicate different concepts. A line needs to be skipped between each answer. 1. Which part of the atoms has the most energy? 2. Chemical Bonds involve which part of the atoms-give the term for these particles. 3. Draw out the molecule C2H6 in stick figure. Describe where the most energy is in the drawing. 4. Using 2 of the 3 characteristics of water that you learned, explain how we could pour water from beaker to beaker using a string. Wed, September 10th: Test on Chemistry and water Week 2-3: Biological Molecules including: Carbohydrates Lipids Proteins Models of all three Chemical Tests for all three Enzymes Enzyme toothpick lab Catalase Lab (measure O2 production) HW II: Due on Monday September 22nd Which molecule(s) have the most energy: Starch, lipids, monosaccharides, disaccharides, or proteins. Explain your choice- you may have to refer to your last HW to answer this. Thursday, September 25: Test on BiologicalMolecules Week 3-4: Cells including: Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes Organelles Cell simile HWIII: Due Tuesday September 30th 1. Research Tay Sachs disease. Which organelle is not working and why does this lead to death? 2. What would be a symptom for someone with a mitochondrial disease? Explain. Thursday, October 2: Test on Organelles Week 4-5: Cell Membrane including: Function Parts (diagram) Building a membrane model Diffusion Lab Osmosis Lab HW IV: Due Wednesday, October 8th 1. Type up osmosis lab. 2. http://bcs.whfreeman.com/thelifewire8e/content/cat_040/0504003.htm Using the animation on this website, describe in words and diagrams the flow of bulk materials into and out of the cell. Use proper terminology. Friday, October 10th, Test on Plasma Membrane and Diffusion and osmosis Unit 3: Weeks 1-2: Cellular Respiration including: ATP Review Of Role of Enzymes Overview of respiration Glycolysis Krebs cycle Electron transport chain Fermentation (clay model of all of above) Fatigue Lab and role of fermentation in humans Respiration lab HW I: Due Monday, October 13th In your own words, explain the function of ATP and how its structure plays a role. HW II: Due Friday, October 17th: Using no more than 2 sentences for each, describe how respiration proceeds through: Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle, Electron Transport Chain, Fermentation. *******Tests: Unannounced mini-spot quizzes.********** Weeks 3-4: Photosynthesis including: Overview and leaf cut-out Energy in Light Chlorophyll Light reactions (3-D model with straws and clay) Calvin cycle Photosynthesis Lab 1 Photosynthesis Lab 2 Photorespiration C4 and CAM plants Overview- The importance of photosynthesis HW III: Due Tuesday, October 21st: Compare and contrast the overall equations for Photosynthesis and Respiration in a paragraph. HW IV: Due Tuesday, October 28th: Answer these questions in complete sentences: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. How does PSI get its electron back? How does PSII get its electron back? Why did they need to get electrons back in the first place? What would happen if chlorophyll ran out of electrons? (BE SPECIFIC) With regards to photosynthesis, why do plants need light? Water? *******Tests: Unannounced mini-spot quizzes.*********** Week 5: Nutrient Cycles including: Water Cycle Caron/Oxygen Cycle Nitrogen Cycle Details to be released as we move into October Week 6: Mitosis Week 7: Meiosis I might stick Unit 2- ecology in before mitosis and meiosis since genetics is up next!!! Whatcha think?
