Eleventh graders explore the spread of a disease through a population. In this Algebra II lesson, 11th graders analyze graphical data representing they spread of a disease. Students produce a graph of the virus data, analyze the data, and compare viral and bacterial infections.
Students work with whole plant material and are not required to measure small quantities, yet they can see evidence of transformed plant cells (plant cells that have genes from bacterial plasmids). This is a laboratory suitable for students who are familiar with the basic principles of plant cell structure, tissue culture, sterile technique, and cell transformation (bacterial infection, plasmid vectors, marker genes, selection medium, and enzyme activity assays).
Five questions about the work of biochemist, Oswald Avery, are presented on this worksheet. You will need to find a reading passage, perhaps on the Internet, about his discovery, but it would be a worthwhile search. The assignment brings up thought-provoking questions, not only on the development of our understanding of DNA, but also the history and conventions of science.
High school biologists produce written answers to twenty-five questions about human immunity. This worksheet was designed as a reading guide for a specific textbook; however, you can use it for any general biology textbook or as a unit review. The material covered is comprehensive and typical for this topic.
There is an important distinction between the bacteria that most students recognize as having a negative impact, and those that live in a symbiotic relationship with us. Sal looks at the mechanisms by which bacteria accumulate variation and also how they impact our lifestyle and behavior. Real-world and sometimes humorous examples add interest to this presentation.
The 2005 version of the Regents High School Examination in the area of ecology is as comprehensive as previous years' exams. It consists of 40 multiple choice questions on everything from the structure of DNA to the interactions within an ecosystem. Questions following include analysis of population graphs, interpreting data, drawing a graph, and short essay responses. The same range of topics is covered.
The different methods of attack that the human body uses against invaders on a cellular level are summarized here. There are detailed diagrams regarding the specializations of the immune cells, and the chemical or physical response that they evoke. There are some sentences left incomplete that can be filled in during the lecture.
A fantastic slideshow that has images, details, definitions and trivia to accompany each structure and response involved with the immune system. The slides are very useful for all levels of the immune response. A complete sets of notes could be generated by your students from this PowerPoint. information is separated concerning cells and specialized roles. There are also a couple of slides about the HIV virus and AIDS.
