Extension: Transport Across the Membrane

This Khan Academy activity has a lot of information about transport and it goes above and beyond the stuff we talk about in class (Hint: good place to start researching things for a 4.0 project).

Complete the pre-quiz activity and then start watching the videos after. Take notes on these videos.

Remind: How to set up Remind on your phone

You can set up Remind a few different ways:

You can use the app and get notifications from it. It is available on both iPhone and Android.

You can sign up using your phone number. Follow the link below that corresponds with your class hour to find the directions. You will need to text a specific phone number our class code to sign up. If you do not have service at the moment, write down the number and code for later. If this is your first time signing up with Remind, it will ask you to send your name in a text message to register you for the site.

The app is the best option for also communicating with me. The app will send me a message and I can respond right back to you. Your parents can also sign up for this app if they want to receive updates about the class as well.

If you have questions, please let me know.

Welcome Back to School!

Welcome back to school! I know that the first few days of school are hard to get back into but we have a lot to cover.

This website is where you can find videos, quizzes and other helpful things that we use in class. This is where you can find a link to my email, sign up for text message reminders, or even to check your grades on PowerSchool. I will update this blog almost every week with new information from the class. Keep an eye out for extra things that I post only to the blog. These extra videos or activities might help you with quizzes or tests.

If you have any questions about the class or just a question about Biology, please email me. I'm excited to be back and I am ready to help you learn about Biology.
