Presentation on theme: "B’ru haba b’shem Adonai … Welcome Lord Jesus!"— Presentation transcript:
1 B’ru haba b’shem Adonai … Welcome Lord Jesus! Welcome students in the name of Jesus
2 Let’s look at the texts … Biology: God’s Living CreationField and Laboratory ManualNote: ok to look ahead at Lab ProceduresNo written assignments in preparation for labs… but lab report sheets document completion of the lab.Handle only lab equipment as needed for each lab when it is needed. Promptly replace items.
3 Labs and the RKSI Project A special word about …Labs and the RKSI Project
4 “Road Kill” Scene Investigation Project “Common Sense” Guidelines Don’t bring more than we will have time to dissect or space to store. Assume max of 2 weeks in refrigerator. Check lab schedule for appropriate dates. We’re already close to our storage limit.Never collect without adult supervision.Never physically touch a specimen without wearing protective gloves or using a collection bag.Take care to protect eyes from biohazardsPractice cleanliness at all times … Wash your hands after every handling (even when wearing gloves)! And wash the specimen. Remember: Francis Bacon, the father of modern science, died from handling specimens.
5 Lab Safety Never dissect a hand-held specimen. Never use a scapel or cutting device with more than one cutting edge.Never perform unauthorized experiments.Follow directions outlined in Lab Manual verbatim and any special instructor directions.Keep test tubes pointed away from yourself and others.Never taste any chemicals or samples.Follow Dissection lab rules.
6 Lab RulesTouch nothing in the supply box except what is required for that lab.Tell the teacher if you break something.Communications should be in a whisper and should be only about the lab.No laughing or talking between tables.Stay in your seats at all times.No playing or doing anything not related to the lab.Raise your hand without calling the teacher’s name.Take your lab manual with you to your lab table and answer the questions as you work.
7 Lab Rules specific to Dissections Concerns:The specimens you will dissect in this class will contain no blood and feel like plastic.The holding fluid is not poisonous and has a mild odor, if any at all.1. Know the organs you see and remove no organs.2. Be careful and neat.3. Do not cut deeply.4. Go slowly.5. Use scalpel sparingly.6. Wash your hands when finished.

9 1.1 Intro to Biology Biology – the study of living things BIOS – ‘life’LOGY – ‘science of’Organisms – living thingsHabitats – regions where particular organisms normally liveOur Study Methodology: reading, use of tools of science, field observations, collection/research methodologies, dissection of organisms, and scientific analysis and reporting.
10 Major Fields of Biology BOTANY – the study of plantsZOOLOGY – the study of animalsHUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY- the physical structure and function of the human bodyNOT COVERED WELL IN THIS COURSE:MICROBIOLOGYGENETICS [GENOMETRICS, ETC.]BIOMETRICSECOLOGYDISEASE/DEATH – MORPHOLOGYBIOCHEMISTRYETC.
11 Our Role in BiologyRomans 1:20 – For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.Genesis 1:28 – And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea , and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”“The whole earth growns awaiting the awakening of man!”
12 1.2 Botany Importance: 2/3 or food (directly); all really Classification/Identification Parts of a Plant:Flowers (Reproduction)Leaves (Photosynthesis)Stems (Classification due to fire)WoodyHerbaceousVine (neither woody nor herbaceous)Roots (Transport/storage)TaprootFibrousVegetative reproduction (can look like either eg. Sand strawberry)Name a few other parts of plants left out of this list.
14 Leaves Parts of a leaf: Three basic leaf shapes: Compound leaves Blade Stalk (or petiole)Midrib (on many leaves)Three basic leaf shapes:Broad, flat leavesLeaf marginsEntire – smooth/unbrokenToothedLobedLong, narrow leavesNeedle-like or scalelike leavesCompound leavesDivisionsLeaflets
