Here are the lessons for chapter 2.  I've included the review.  Test date TBA, see calendar or be in class for the decision!

Notez bien que le test pour le chapitre 2 a été bougé à Mardi (après le congé de Mars) à cause de la tempête qui a fermé les écoles hier.  On aura la période lundi pour réviser.

Here are the lessons for chapter one, as promised.  Upcoming dates to take note of:

Cell Cycle assignment (handed out in class) is due on Friday.

The Mitosis lab will be done on Tuesday and Wedneday of next week.  Attendance is mandatory!  This lab cannot be made up at lunch.

We will be introducing the first research essay in class before the end of the week, and important handouts regarding this essay will be provided.  If you're not in class, make sure to see me to get these!

There MAY be a quiz on chapter 1 next week.  The class will make a decision about that in the upcoming days, so stay tuned!

(don't forget - Huntington's Case Studies were due on Monday, so if you haven't handed your in yet, do so ASAP!)

For those who have been absent for NRF - The test was written on Tuesday.  You will need to write that on the day you return.  We have begun chapter 2.  I've uploaded the lesson, and the homework can be found on the last page of the lesson.

Indicators of Chemical change lab handout has been included!  The lab report is due on Wednesday, October 18th!

NRF:  Nous avons commencé la révision pour le test du chapitre 1.  Le test sera MARDI, le 11 octobre.  La correction de la révision est disponible en classe.  J’ai attaché la feuille de questions de révision.

Science 10:  Today, we introduced the movement of electrons as the main cause of chemical reactions.  Please see the attached lesson titled "Chemical Reactions".    

Biology 11:  We completed the lesson uploaded yesterday on the structure of the cell membrane, no new lesson needs to be updated at this time.

NRF 10:  Aujourd’hui, nous avons terminé le chapitre en apprenant la dernière méthode de factorisation – factorisation de carrées parfaits.  J’ai attaché la leçon.  J’ai aussi attaché la feuille de travail (que je ramasse et je corrige!).  Sur cette feuille de travail, vous n’avez pas besoin de factoriser, mais plutôt seulement de NOMMER le ou les types de factorisation à utiliser.  Si vous n’êtes pas certains quoi faire, planifiez venir à l’aide supplémentaire la semaine prochaine SVP!  Il y aura un test sur le chapitre 1 bientôt, mais la date sera choisie et annoncée demain.


Science 10:  Today, we completed the lesson uploaded yesterday on the organization of the periodic table with an introdution to Lewis Notations.  Please review the lesson (check out yesterday's uploads!) and complete the assignment on the final page - Lewis notation for the first 20 elements on the periodic table.  If you aren't sure what to do, plan to come in for extra help next week.


Biology 112:  Today, we started chapter 4 - Cell Boundaries with an introduction to the structure of the cell membrane.  I've uploaded the lesson.  the DUE DATE for the Eukaryotic Cell Structures assignment (uploaded yesterday) is TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10th.


NRF 10:  On a fini la factorisation de trinômes.  J'ai attaché la leçon, mais le devoir est le suivant:  Dans le manuel, à la page 178, le devoir Explorateur (E) est de compléter les numéros 15 et #18 ab.  Le devoir Cartographe (C) est de compléter les numéros 15gh, 16 et 18ab.  J'ai inclus un scan de la page du manuel pour ceux qui n'ont pas apporté leurs manuels à la maison.


Science 10:  I've attahced the lesson on the organization of the periodic table of elements.  Pay particular attention to the significance of the periods in a the table and the review on the visual representation (Bohr-Rutherford) of elements.  Do the assignment indicated mid-way through the lesson and draw the Bohr-Rutherford representation of the first 20 elements, looking for trends and patterns.  The rest of the lesson (From Lewis Notation onwards) will be covered in class tomorrow.  It should also be noted that the lab has been pushed back to next Tuesday and Wednesday (October 10th and 11th) so the exchange students and the multi-school Pow-wow will not prevent students from taking part in the lab activity.


Biology 112:  We finished the summary review of the eukaryotic cell structures, and effectively finihsed chapter 3.  I've attached the lesson.  Please complete the assignment attached (both parts).  For the first part of the assignment, the summary of functions, it should be noted that the challenge is brevity - edit your work as your summary of FUNCTION should be no more than one line and should not actually pass the end of the line provided.  Choose your words carefully!!  The second part of the assignment is an analogy.  Read the instructions carefully and plan to attend extra help next week if you're not sure what's expected.
