2 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 2 70% of the Earth is covered in water. More than half of the Oxygen you breathe Is produced in the ocean. Amniotic Fluid has the same salinity As seawater. If you like Ice Cream….you most likely Ate it with some Seaweed You may have brushed your teeth with marine skeletons this morning How does Marine Science Impact you? Life on an Ocean Planet Chapter 1 Page 1-3

3 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 3 How do we Impact it? nThe oceans produce two influences vital to life on Earth. Weather and world climate patterns dictate how warm, cold, wet, or dry it will be. This largely determines where humans live on land. nIn addition, the oceans provide three important marine resources: Food Oxygen Natural Resources (such as oil) nHumans have seen all of the Earths surface, but theres far more to discover below than on it. nHumans increasingly change the oceans; pollution and overfishing have caused serious damage, coral reefs are dying off, and theres more. nWhat you learn here about the science of investigation and problem-solving, regardless of your final career choice, benefits you by making you a more capable person who contributes to society. Life on an Ocean Planet Chapter 1 Pages 1-3 to 1-5

4 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 4 Marine Science nMarine Science – the process of discovering the facts, processes, and unifying principles that explain the nature of the oceans and their associated life forms. nOceanography – the science of recording and describing the oceans contents and processes. nThere are four main branches of oceanography. Biological oceanography – studies life in the ocean. Chemical oceanography – studies the chemistry of seawater. Geological oceanography – studies the geology of the ocean. Physical oceanography – studies the physics within the marine environment. nTechnology has made marine exploration and its associated careers possible. It is through technology that true marine exploration has become possible. Defining Your Study Chapter 1 Pages 1-8 to 1-10

5 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 5 OK so its really Oceanography?? nHow will we study it? nMarine science involves four study areas beyond traditional science disciplines: 1. Science as Inquiry – applying science as a way of solving problems, answering questions. 2. Science and Technology – learning how science advances technology and vice-versa. 3. Science in Personal and Social Perspectives – how science affects you and society. 4. Historical Nature of Science – understanding how science evolved as a discipline. Defining Your Study Chapter 1 Pages 1-11 to 1-14

6 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 6 I thought this was Marine Science? nThis course will include cross discipline content….integrating with many other disciplines nCross-discipline areas of study include: Math - Mathematics is the universal language that helps you explain the physical nature of the oceans. History – A historical review provides insight to the past, present, and future of our oceans. A historical background provides a context of how and why the study of oceanography has changed over time. Technology - Some say technology causes problems, some say it increases our knowledge. It is really the advances in technology that has made modern oceanography possible. Social Sciences - Decisions about the environment may affect the life of others on the planet. Literature - Announcing scientific findings to others requires using literary and artistic forms. Arts - The method of experimentation may be in the form of videography or ethnography rather than the typical experiment. Defining Your Study Chapter 1 Pages 1-15 & 1-16

7 MenuPreviousNext Course Objectives nMY goals as a teacher nMake this course interesting nHold you accountable and self reliant as a student nIncrease your literacy in science nHelp you Enjoy Science as a subject nMake you aware of the fragile nature of the Ocean nMake you aware of Human dependence on the Ocean nMake you aware of Careers related to this expanding field 1 - 7

8 MenuPreviousNext How can I hope to do this? nR…..O…….Vs nField Trips nVideo which are directly related to the material nResponse cards nFish Tanks nFish as Food Fest nAvailability of Notes and Grades nJoke of the day 1 - 8

9 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 9 The Division of our Textbook and Course nOur Textbook Life on an Ocean Planet will divide marine science into meaningful segments. These units are: Unit 1: Importance of Ocean Exploration Unit 2: The Foundation of Life in the Ocean Unit 3: A Water World Unit 4: The Motion of the Ocean Unit 5: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Unit 6: The Present and Future of the Marine Environment How to Learn Marine Science Most Efficiently Chapter 1 Pages 1-34 to 1-36

10 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 10 How to use your textbook to Focus Study nHeadings (black) and subheadings (blue) divide each chapter. Paying attention to these helps to organize the materials. nLearning Objectives are green: found under subheadings. IMPORTANT: as you read, find the answers to each of the learning objective questions. nRelevant supplement information: found in the purple-boxed sidebars. nPhotos and illustrations are red. These provide important visual information to illustrate what youre reading. nQuick Quiz is found at the end of a main subject division. IMPORTANT: Review the materials until you understand any questions missed before moving on. nReview questions are found at the end of each chapter. How to Learn Marine Science Most Effectively Chapter 1 Pages 1-35 & 1-36

11 MenuPreviousNext 1 - 11 Learning Effectively with Life on an Ocean Planet nThe first thing to do is survey this book. You do this by: First, read the table of contents; note chapter titles and subheadings. Next, go through from cover to cover. Pay attention to style and how its laid out. Look for the pattern in identifying elements; the marine scientist profiles, quizzes, and reviews. Skim the glossary, index, and references. nSurveying before reading makes learning more efficient and effective. It does this by establishing your mental framework about marine science. nAfter surveying the book there are five study steps to follow as you learn. How to Learn Marine Science Most Efficiently Chapter 1 Pages 1-36 to 1-38

12 MenuPreviousNext Our Course Overview nFirst and Second Quarter nOceanography nHistory of Marine Science nTools of Oceanography nOcean Topography nWater nWaves, Tides and Tsunamis 1 - 12

13 MenuPreviousNext Course Overview nSecond and Third Quarter nMarine Biology nOrganisms in the Ocean – through the phylums nFocus on popular species such as Sharks and Marine Mammals nRelationships in the Ocean nOcean Habitats nHuman Impact on the Ocean 1 - 13

14 MenuPreviousNext Learning Style Assignment nIn order to tailor the course to the best way we learn please take the learning style survey nFolllow the link and answer the questions. write in the learning style on your Expectation sheet Learning Style Survey 1 - 14 NEXT:
