This Unit is explaining the basis of the DNA. We studied classic genetics in Unit 6: this is another step in the investigations about Genetics. This Unit is important to understand the Evolution (Unit 8), one of the most interesting Units of this course. We are going to work in colaborative as usual. The marks were good marks in previous Unit: try to work as usual and you will get it again!
One more Unit about genetics. Human genetics, new problems, diseases...this Unit is like an extension of previous one. As we explained in class, the exam will include both Units. You may find also an list of extra problems. The examen will include problems of the type of the list. THE EXAM WILL INCLUDE A THEORY PART, IS NOT JUST ABOUT PROBLEMS. Good luck!
Genetics is a new matter for all of you. You will remember Mendel´s name for the rest of your lives.... we will learn the three Mendel´s Laws...we will solve Genetic problems.... and we will study the exception for these laws. Here you have the power point of the Unit. I will add some extra problems next week.....or maybe in January! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY 2015!
We had reciently the chance of recieving an amazing collection of fossils. The collection included trilobites and graptolites among others. It was a great opportunity to observe the fossils because we have been studying lots of them in Unit 3, The History of the Earth. This collection belongs to the father of our teacher don Javier Chivite. We really thanks to don Javier and his father their generosity and patient.
You have finished the Geology. Congratulations. Therefore, you start Biology. The Cell is the new Unit. Most of the things have been already studied. This video about the inner life of cells is really amazing:
About the exam, remember that some questions are not explained in your text book but in the power point. Please note the black letter and the power point. Good luck!
