SECOND SEMESTER: 1/5/18...
Review of Major Class/School Rules...
1. You must be in your assigned seat by the bell or you will be marked tardy...entering the room at the bell or after is considered tardy-DO NOT stay and talk with teachers placing you tardy for my class..
2. There will be no talking without permission or sidebar conversations with students
3. No cell phones are allowed in my class at any times, unless specified for a lab...Referrals will be written if phones go off or they are seen on a test.
4. Safety is paramount...Dissections and activities predispose students to accidents and never horseplay or not adhering to directions.
5. Grades will not be discussed in e-mails and ALL grades are earned...
6. You must raise your hand to ask a question-never to shout in the room as this disturbs other students requiring quiet environments.
7. Dress codes will be adhered to per school policy...
8. Cheating will result in automatic zero on assessment and referral-this includes wandering eyes, talking, and/or using cell phones or notes...
9. No eating or drinking without professional courtesy: only capped bottles, closed containers, etc...If I reward you with a snack, respect the privilege...
10. Disrespect, bullying, or defiance in my classroom will not be tolerated...All students
must earn respect and treat others as young adults in this learning environment.
11. ***Forgetting your name on any coursework/assessments will be an automatic zero-you should know the rituals and routines-name-date-pd on every paper upper right corner...since first day of school...
***This 2nd Semester will be extremely rigorous and more demanding with the remaining body systems, CPR and Dissections...Pace will be fast and ultimate study and review daily is encouraged to be successful...You MUST come to class prepared and on time!
DO NOT THROW ANY  NOTES AWAY, JUST PUT THEM ASIDE AND START SEM 2!

***HW: preview ch 11-Endocrine system...know difference between exocrine and Endocrine glands!
The mother's father is colorblind as he passes on the X gene to the mother...she is a 
'CARRIER' for colorblind only passing it down to her sons...
The colour blind ‘gene’ is carried on one of the X chromosomes. Since men have only one X chromosome, if his X chromosome carries the colour blind ‘gene’ (X) he will be colour blind (XY). A woman can have either:-
(i) two normal X chromosomes, so that she will not be colour blind or be a carrier (XX),
(ii) or, one normal X and one colour blind carrying X chromosome, in which case she will be a carrier (XX), or rarely
(iii) she will inherit a colour blind X from her father and a colour blind X from her mother and be colour blind herself (XX). She will pass on colour blindness to all of her sons if this is the case.

Monday-1/8...CW: Smell,Taste, and Touch...2 Special senses...you should have finished watching the intro video from class and completed the WS at home over the weekend...
***National Science Honor Society short presentation...

***Below are video links from today on Olfaction and Gustation...

Smell...https://youtu.be/snJnO6OpjCs
Taste...https://youtu.be/0hwOL91cjwM

Olfaction = sense of Smell...

***The Cribriform plate is porous, filled with holes that allow axons to connect with each other, thus producing the sense of smell...
***Most of what you taste has to pass by the 'olfactory bulb'...when you have a cold, you can't taste food the same...

The PTC Gene

Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC), also known as phenylthiourea (PTU),has the unusual property that it either tastes very bitter or is virtually tasteless, depending on the genetic makeup of the taster. The ability to taste PTC is often treated as a dominant genetic trait, although inheritance and expression of this trait are somewhat more complex.
Usually, 75% can taste it, 25% can't and some can a little.
***Know where the 5 tastes, incl bitter are on your tongue.
