Life’s greatest miracle


As the final lesson for this year, we will be talking about reproduction and development.

As an introduction to this, those with broadband connections can view the PBS movies on Life’s Greatest Miracle (you will never look at the beach the same way again) but you will need either Quicktime or Realplayer to view the movies. A look at the role of reproduction in evolution can be found here.



Animal hormone HW for the long weekend

I know it’s a killjoy to have to do HW on a long weekend but I have to assign this to avoid holding make-up classes during your hell week. Just stick with it. You’ll be done in 30 mins tops. 😉

Happy V-day or Singles’ Awareness Day! If you can’t be in love with someone, stay in love with life! 😉

Visit the archives to hunt for the other systems. Of course, reading the summary section of the appropriate chapter from your Bio textbook works too. 😉


Presentation on the Nervous System

You may download the nervous system presentation here.

For my sections, the first long test will just cover the muscular system and what we were able to discuss of the nervous system. Bonus questions will be gotten from the brain HW.

Other resources include flash files on the following topics:

  1. Action potential
  2. Comparing saltatory conduction with non-myelinated axonal conduction
  3. Neurotransmitters at a synapse

Happy studying! 😛
