Good afternoon! I hope you had a great concert this morning, I’m sure the elementary school enjoyed it.

HOMEWORK for periods 1, 3, and 5: You will be in the computer lab Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week to complete your hydroponics project 2012. Remember your 3 paragraphs and graph are due this Friday, December 21. This is the deadline. If need graph paper, use this hydro graph template. Remember you need to graph all the data we collect on our plants growth on ONE GRAPH. See me if you have questions BEFORE FRIDAY!

For periods 1 and 3 we watched Forensic Detectives: Mysteries and Solutions (schneiderdf, Student) and discussed which techniques we have used in class and the limitations of collecting and analyzing evidence. You do not have any homework due tomorrow.

For period 5, your objective was to describe how turned on and off by simulating a microarray. We started the lesson off with mRNA com pairs. Then we went over example 3 of the Microarray Simulations. You worked in pairs to complete this and turn it in. The rest of the class we watched DragonflyTV: Crime Scene and Mystery Castle: Forensics. You do not have any homework due tomorrow.

For period 6, your objective was to verify their chromatography results by analyzing the gel electrophoresis lab. We started the lesson off with unscramble 2. Then you moved into your groups to collect your data from your hydroponics project for the last time. Then we finished up on the analysis questions from the Gel Electro 2012 6th. You then used this information to complete the Gel Electrophoresis Mini Quiz both of which you turned in. You do not have any homework.
