Students in the advanced science class have an extra workload this weekend. In addition to the worksheet, students will need to complete the following short assignments and be ready to turn them in on Monday.
1) Compare and contrast cellular respiration and fermentation. This can be done using a Venn diagram or a chart/table.
2) Read this article http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2012/01/first-oxygen-users and summarize it in one or two paragraphs.
Students who chose to have extra practice on writing/solving inequalities from word problems (which is most of the class) will be assessed on Monday. The test will look very similar to the last two practice worksheets. When we come back on Wednesday, they will complete a study guide to prepare for the unit exam which will be given on Thursday (possibly Friday if we don't cover all the answers before they leave class). The test covers equations and inequalities - most of it involves writing and solving equations/inequalities from word problems, while a few questions just involve arithmetic.
On Monday, students will take a 5-question quiz on the reactants and products of photosynthesis and cellular respiration - carbon dioxide, oxygen, chlorophyll, sunlight, etc. Beginning on Wednesday, we will continue our unit on plants by diving deeper into the carbon dioxide-oxygen exchange between living things and the environment. Students will be quizzed on Friday after receiving a short study guide on Thursday.
