Welcome to Biology! Everyone will recieve a syllabus on the first day of school but if you lose yours, you can access the syllabus here:
Class 9/16: In class: Quiz 2, population dynamics simulation. HW: None. Honors project due next class!
Class 9/12: Due: Extinction article, science journal 1 In class: Isle Royale doodle notes HW: STUDY for the quiz next class! Topics: biodiversity, extinction, characteristics of life.
Class 9/10: Due: group poster. In class: extinction doodle notes. HW: finish extinction article. Science journal due next class (see below for the bellwork handout.) Quiz Monday on biodiveristy, extinction, characteristics of life.
Class 9/6: Due: graph from last class. In class: Characteristics of Life, biodiversity and extinction. Time to work on extinction posters. There will be 15 more minutes of classtime to finish the posters. HW: Science journal due 9/12. See bellwork handout if needed.
Class 9/4: In class: Graphing review with data collection HW: finish graph.You must include at least 5 data points. Remember to have a meaningful title and label both axes. Your scale should be uniform and make sense for the data.
Class 8/28: In class: Odd one out- due at the end of the class period. HW: STUDY for the quiz! look over syllabus, lab safety, graphing practice, CER, and making measurements! Here's the lab safety checklist if you lost yours.

HW: What questions about life/living things do you hope we answer by the end of the year? You can phrase this as a question or you can just write down topics you are interested in learning about. At least one is needed to get full credit. This video we watched in class might inspire you: Why do we learn science?
