Webquests: 1. Cell Communication (Part 1)- hyperlinks are included. Complete the sheet as you go through the interactives. (*A hard copy will be provided for writing your answers). There are also Parts 2-4 (on another doc). Only do Pt 2 for now and we will finish the rest when we get to Nervous, Immune and Endocrine Systems later in the course. *ATP vsGTP...make sure you read this. 2. Cell Cycle WQ- Mitosis and Meiosis: hyperlinks to websites are included. Here are the sheets you must complete while doing the interactives: Part A- Write answers directly on above sheet; Part B- BioFlix (Mitosis)- *this may be part of your masteringbiology HW Part C (*SITE IS DOWN-2018)- Nobelprize.org Part D- Cell Cycle and Cancer (HHMI.org). Do the Biointeractive 'click and learn'. Part E #3- Meiosis Webquest (LabBench) 3. Interactive: Signal Transduction. Take notes in your lab notebook!
Answer Key(s)- I will only post these for a few days and then remove the links: 1- Linkage and Recombination Frequency 2- Create a Chromosome Map 3-
LABS & PRELABS: 1- Chi square- M&M We will make time to do this one before the actual lab. You get to eat your data 😁 2- Chi square LabBench (pre-lab)- 'Genetics of Organisms'. Read directions for assignment #16, above. 3- Drosophila Lab- This is the actual lab (virtual). **THE SITE IS DOWN- FALL 2018, so hyperlink to the site won't work. I think I have a solution, though. Open this doc of your Chi square assignments. Instructions are listed in #7. Lab groups will be assigned and this will be done in class a day or 2 before the test. (See Chi square PPt for help). *Drosophila Lab Report: Drosophila Lab Report (this is from last year. We will discuss the lab report write up later in the week...after the Unit 4 test is over).
*Go over these at home the day before the Drosophila Lab: 1-LabBench PPt 2-Read THIS at home the day before the lab 3-Example of Drosophila crosswith data, punnett squares and Chi square (similar to ones you will do in the lab). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to go over this at home, the day before lab 4- LOOK AT THIS SITE for how to denote genotypes with +. This is likely the way you will see it denoted on the AP Exam
'Errors of Meiosis'- *This is another Foglia PPt. Hard copy given in class. Won't upload :( Ch 14 Ch 15 Chi square
Videos, Lectures, Helpful Tips and Sites
Cell Communication- Ch 11 I recommend the video lectures on youtube by John Chapman. He is clear and moves at a good pace. However, there's one mistake in his G-protein video. GDP is not phosphorylated to GTP. Instead, GDP is replaced by GTP. Other than that, I think his videos are great. *Speaking of GTP...make sure you read this. Copy & paste the below links and watch in this order: 1- Overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FJkjiNRLh8 2- G-protein receptors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On8CGKDfXd8&t=2s 3- Tyrosine kinase: Links are in Ch 11 PPt 4- Ion gated channels: Links in Ch 11 PPt There are many other good resources for better understanding signal transduction mechanisms: one is Garland Science, another is Kahn Academy. I also posted links to some good (and shorter) youtube videos in the Ch 11 PPt. Cell Cycle Control (checkpoints and cancer): 1- Good youtube video for understanding the Cell Cycle checkpoints and Cancer 2- Cell Cycle Control in a Nutshell- synopsis that explains the process (in my own words, for whatever that's worth!)
