week of 10/19 - 10/23

  This week we are going to cover RNA and protein synthesis, chapter 13. Transcription and translation takes a lot of practice to get good at so if you hear your student talking in nitrogen bases (A,T,C,G) it's ok. We are going to have a lot of practice drawing DNA to RNA strand and RNA strand to amino acid chain this week. Hopefully if all goes well, we will have a test over DNA and RNA/protein synthesis on Friday.

this week (approx.)
Monday 19th: go over the Non-graded DNA quiz, intro notes to transcription
Tuesday 20th: Intro to translation, practice
Wednesday 21st: Snork activity
Thursday 22nd: Protein synthesis practice, get the review
Friday 23rd: review day in class

I have decided to move the test to Tuesday the 27th.

Here is a great video describing protein synthesis with good animations:
