Tues Sept 16: Please review our notes and discussion exploring how to construct a scale biological drawing.  Students then completed this drawing for the onion cell.


                Microscope Learning Check Thurs Sept 18             

                    Microscope Lab Report Due Fri Sept 19

                Including Biological Drawing and Q1-10a


Mon Sept 15:  Students prepared a wet mount of an onion cell and calculated its biological size.

          Microscope Learning Check - Thurs Sept 18


Fri Sept 12:
Students completed the Learning Check.  Please review the formula for calculating biological size.  We completed a sample calculation and then students used a prepared slide on an amoeba to practice focusing and calculating biological size.  More work with this next day!


Wed Sept 10:
Please review our notes and discussion exploring terms related to the compound light microscope: (a) total magnification & calculations, (b) field of view, (c) depth of field (thread illustration), (d) working distance, (e) resolving power, (f) image inversion, (g) specimen, (h) wet mount (note procedure) and (i) permanent slide.


                Homework - Scientist Learning Check Fri Sept 12


Tues Sept 9:
Please review our continued notes and discussion of scientists who contributed to the Cell Theory: (b) Leewenhoek, (c) Brown, (d) Schleiden, (e) Schwann, (f) Braun and (f) Virchow.  Note the 4 points composing the Cell Theory.  We then started Lab 1: Caring for and Using the Microscope.  Note parts of the microscope and their functions.  Be able to label a diagram of the microscope.

              Homework - Scientist Learning Fri Sept 12



Fri Sept 5:
Please review our continued notes and discussion exploring the spontaneous generation / biogenesis debate: (2) Needham, (3) Spallanzani and (4) Pasteur.  Also note the contributions of scientists toward the Cell Theory: (1) Hooke...to be continued.

Thurs Sept 4:
Students were given copies of course outlines and textbooks were distributed.  We started our discussion of Unit 1: "Matter and Energy for Life".  Please review our notes and discussion exploring the spontaneous generation / biogenesis debate.  Be familiar with experiments of scientists that supported each of these theories on the origin of living cells: (1) Redi...to be continued.
