Introduction to Genetics


In this class you are going to create your own word cloud and mind map to show me what you already know about genetics. Go to the google doc at http://moourl.com/biology and add at least ten words that come to mind when you think of ‘genetics’. Copy and paste all the terms into Tagxedo and customise your word cloud. Download a copy and send it to me. Now you have two choices:

  1. Go to Bubbl.us and create a mindmap using the key terms from Chapter 9. Download and send a copy.
  2. Go to Quizlet and create a set of flashcards using the terms and definitions from Chapter 9. Send me a link to your work. The Quizlet below was created by Mr Flattery and can be used and adapted.

Class of 2011


These are the five lovely students in our Year 11 Biology Class this year.  We are starting with Unit 1:  Cells in Action. In addition to completing the Chapter 1 Review questions we will be doing the following activities:

Use the iPod Touch app “iCell” by HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology to review the structure and function of organelles within plant, animal and bacterial cells.

Use the “Cells Alive” website to learn about the relative sizes of different objects veiwed under a microscope, as well as the study the models of plant, animal and bacterial cells. Biology Corner has an excellent website, with an internet lesson and worksheet that can be printed. You will look at computer models of cells, learn the functions and the descriptions of the cells and their components.
