Historical biology or biological history?

This week we’ll be looking at the development of the cell theory.  You will need to research the contribution made by each of the following scientists, find a picture of the person or what they made or saw, then use the information to construct a timeline.  Put all that into a presentation of some kind  [prezi / dipity /anything else appropriate].  Your presentation should also include the main points of the cell theory.  Enter the url of your work as a link in a comment on this post.

1.      Hans and Zacharias Janssen

The year ahead …

the long road ahead by qmnonic on flickr

This first document shows the intended timeline we will aim to follow for the year.  Schedule for 10-11

You can cross reference with the syllabus guide, also attached.  IB Biology Syllabus Guide

This is a plan, and therefore is subject to change, but we will aim to stick to it a far as possible.  We’ll start with Topic 1, and pretty well work our way through in order, supplementing material from the HL section as we go.  We must complete 60 hours of lab work over the 2 years of study.  This does not mean you will have to write up 60 lab reports, as many of the labs we do run over more than a single lesson.  And a highlight of the year is our field trip in January to Candaba Swamp.  I will post something specifically about the grading criteria used for labs later.

History meets Biology = Biostory?
