We started off this week with learning about organic molecules like lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids. Later in the week we discussed macromolecules and biochemistry. On Thursday we made cheese and eggs! Lipids store energy, and include hormones, cholesterol, and phospholipids. Lipids are made up of their carboxyl group, a hydrocarbon chain, which resembles… Continue reading Week 10

The reading mainly talked about traits of water, the difference between potential and kinetic energy, the definition of matter, the difference between a covalent a ionic a Van der Waals… Continue reading Reflection October 24-28
In class this week we learned about two possible explanations for the first left forms on Earth. The two different hypothesizes were Metabolism first and Replication first. We spilt up into groups and had half the group research metabolism first, and the other half research replication first and when we were done we presented out hypothesizes to the other half of our group and then researched facts to debunk the two hypothesizes.

This week was still centered around Big Idea 1, evolution. We moved on from speciation and natural selection, and are now focusing more on artificial selection and how it relates to domestication. Domestication is defined as: to tame (an animal), especially by generations of breeding, to live in close association with human beings as a pet… Continue reading WEEK 4
Over the weekend, we were assigned to read Chapter 19, Descent with Modification, and complete a worksheet of questions on different philosophers, terms and concepts. The chapter pretty much expanded on a lot of concepts we had previously covered in class, like homozygous dominant and heterozygous, things like that, but also went much further into… Continue reading Week 3

We continued on with our anole virtual lab, started learning about how pocket mice evolved to have darker fur to camouflage with volcanic rock in New Mexico,… Continue reading Week 2
