What is Flip Teaching?
In flip teaching, the students first study the topic by themselves, typically using video lessons prepared by the teacher. In class, students then apply the knowledge by solving problems and doing practical work.

Parts of a Microscope

Historians credit the invention of the compound microscope to the Dutch spectacle maker, Zacharias Janssen, around the year 1590. The compound microscope uses lenses and light to enlarge the image and is also called an optical or light microscope (vs./ an electron microscope)The simplest optical microscope is the magnifying glass and is good to about ten times (10X) magnification. The compound microscope has two systems of lenses for greater magnification, 1) the ocular, or eyepiece lens that one looks into and 2) the objective lens, or the lens closest to the object. Before using a microscope, it is important to know the functions of each part. 

Homework: Explore the Virtual Microscope.

Cell Model Making

Hallo Tributes of S1-06,

As mentioned in our last lesson, you will need to start preparing to make a simple cell model. 

In the same grouping as for Bloom's Taxonomy Poster, create a fully labelled cell model through research and thoughtful interpretations (see links to videos below for samples).
Your cell model will be evaluated in accordance to the rubrics provided through a presentation.

Deadline: 16th January 2014 (Thursday)

Hallo and welcome!

Dear Tributes of S1-06,

I hope you all are enjoying Science classes as much as I do!

Kindly spend some time to allow Paul Andersen to take you on a tour of the cell. He starts by explaining the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. He also explains why cells are small but not infinitely small. He also explains how the organelles work together in a similar fashion.
