Have students discuss with partners and have them come up with a few example of why the water cycle is important. While discussing have them think of times they have seen the water cycle happen. After the discussion is coming to an end the teacher will talk about how the water cycle is important to the environment because it provides animals and plants constant water to survive. The students will work in groups and create their own version of the water cycle on chart
These 10th graders have a limited science background, having only taken AP Environmental Science before entering my class. They are brilliant, though, and some of the most motivated students I have ever taught. While the College Board dictates that the AP Chemistry exam is identical for all my students, it is impossible to teach these students as I do the upperclassmen in the other class. I must find materials for use with these students that support their learning while also allowing them to gain the experience needed with the topic under study. I must create learning activities that enable them to remember these topics nearly an entire school year before the AP exam in May.
Many scientist today cut portions of DNA with restriction enzymes and include a piece of new genetic material into the bacterial cells. The only way this transformation can take place is if the bacteria is competent and is grown to the right stage in which they are dividing the most. In order for this to happen,one would treat the bacterial cells with Calcium Chloride (CaCl2). The bacteria used in this lab was E.Coli and it was an ideal bacteria because it can be easily grown on agar. Hypothesis The transformed E.Coli with the ampicillin resistance gene will be able to grow in the ampicillin plates and it would have a green glowing color.
You will also be taking the basic college courses offered such as college math, ethics, oral and written communication, and more. Clinicals and laboratory classes are also included to work hands on while learning in school. All your classes will be followed with an externship in which you will go out into the field and learn what it is like to work as a vet tech in an animal hospital or clinic. When all your classes and your externship are complete, you will graduate as a veterinary technician! You will then complete your National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America (NAVTA) test to receive your license and begin
“Veterinary communication is based on the use of medical and scientific terminology. Proper use of medical terminology comes under the SCANS competency for “Information” and “Foundation Skills.” (Pattengale) This shows us that in order to become a veterinary assistant you must know how to apply medical terminology to your job. Also, “Your care duties include providing animals with food and water; taking x-rays, holding animals still during treatment; administering medication as directed…and monitoring the response of animals to treatment.” (Unknown, 1) This quote tells the reader that there are several medical things involved with becoming a veterinary assistant. “The remaining four years include classroom work… lab courses in anatomy and biochemistry; and other scientific and medical studies.” (Lanoue and Massengill) This explains the many things a veterinary assistant must know. By explaining the things a veterinary assistant must know the authors are also explaining the characteristics involved with being a veterinary assistant.
One of the focuses of this semester was the ability to identify biological processes that require energy and explain why they require energy. In the work I completed I demonstrated being able to accomplish this. This occurred in several different projects, including the cellular respiration lab involving the respiration rate of germinating seeds, the potato core lab and the photosynthesis lab. In these labs, we were able to identify the biological processes that required energy for the different processes to take place to allow germination to occur. As the main focus of all of these labs was testing a
"I am a selective repeater. I am a selective repeater so listen closely," he would say. In my sophomore year of high school, one of the most important lessons I had learned was to listen carefully and closely thanks to my biology teacher Mr. Euler. Sure, it sounds simple, but ask yourself on how many occasions you have had to ask someone to repeat themselves again because you did not hear them the first time. If you are like myself, the answer to that would be a countless number of times.
To become a Nurse Anesthetist one has to have the certain education. Starting in High School students should be taking classes like Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, and Chemistry(What). With that being said, it helps if students know what they want to be before they get to college so they can get a head start. Nursing student Breyden Artis says “I wish I would have known that I wanted to be a CRNA when I was in high school so I could have taken classes like college chemistry(Artis).” When Breyden was asked what college is like he said, “College is extremely tough. You really have to be dedicated to being a nurse if you want to get through these courses.
Often times I needed to read several paragraphs a few more times to get a full understanding of what the author was stating. When is comes to the skills involved in this course I believe that I will be able to do my work well and learn much about Bioethics. I am a biology major, so I have learned how to take on challenging material and how I need to learn and contribute to the work. I am a pre-dental student with hopes to get
While in high school, it is advocated to take chemistry, biology, and a higher form of math such as calculus. An accredited hygiene program after high school is also required; this usually takes around one to two years. Just as they are educated in school and in college what to do with teeth even on a daily basis, they teach their patients what to do during an
Selective medium involves medium with environmental conditions that specifically grows some microbes while inhibiting others. Differential medium is used to identify and differentiate (as the title says) closely related microbes based on growth responses and physical indicators. It is imperative to use laboratory positive and negative controls in identifying the unknown because it confirms and compares the results of the unknown’s response to the definite guide. While performing the procedures in this report, students had to keep the bacterial and biological species concepts in context. The bacterial species concept is the identification and naming of microbes based on relating physical and physiological features of the unknown to the fitting taxa.
After summer break, I returned to Westlake High School for my junior year, feeling as if something was missing. The decision to spearhead the creation of a chapter of the Science National Honor Society (SNHS) at my school arose because of my desire to establish a niche where high school students could express their shared passion for the sciences. The SNHS would provide enlightening scientific activities and opportunities for students, and the Science club would serve as a path to introduce members into the society. I initially proposed the creation of the society in a meeting with the Principal and Board of Education. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school.
During my first year, I will fulfill my requirements for my biological sciences major by registering for courses focused on general chemistry, organic chemistry, calculus, statistics, and physics. As a part of the First Year Writing Seminar, I will register for the Health, Planet, and Evolution course because I want to understand how evolution has had a profound influence on modern day society. Focusing on
Gregor Mandel went through a very long process before discovering that plants had sexes, and the fundamentals of inheritance. Mandel had his own garden where he grew his peas and did his research. He was greatly influence by Joseph Koelreuter, by the way he thought about heredity. This inspiration allowed him to have the curiosity to further pursue his work. Mandel had three specific ideas that also influence his work, they were: That fertilizing the hybrid plants would seem to create a new species.
