Diffusion in Agar Cubes; Cell Size Lab

Hypothesis: The size and volume of the agar cubes are what affect the diffusion, so the bigger the cubes, the less it will diffuse because it takes a longer time to get through the dimensions of the cubes. Agar cut up into cubes (1cm, 2cm, 3cm) Cubes after 1 minute of being put into a…

DNA and Protein Synthesis

We started our DNA strand with our backbone, its base pairing and nucleotides. (Blue pipe cleaner = 5-carbon sugar backbone, pink beads = phosphates, yellow beads = adenine, blue beads = thymine, purple beads = guanine, green beads = cytosine). This picture represents the completion of the hydrogen bonding. The DNA forms a double helix…

Desmos Art Functions Card 2018

Link to Desmos: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/gnu3y8ihn8 This project was an interesting one for me, at first I thought it would be very straightforward and easy to complete but I proved myself wrong. It was time consuming and frustrating at times but it did give me a much better and visual understanding of equations and graphing. I came…

Week 16 in PreCalc 11

On our first week back, we started and finished our trig unit. Last year, I didn’t like trigonometry at all, it was my least favourite unit, mainly because the whole idea of “SOH CAH TOA” confused me, but thankfully this year, I got a much better understanding of it, especially because we will be doing…

The Magic of Light – Physics 11

I chose a video called “Just Add Water,” basically there is a clear cup filled with water and behind it lies a white piece of paper with a drawing of some sort on it, let’s use one of the examples in the video, there was a word that spelled “now” and when the water was…

Week 15 in Precalc 11

This week in Precalc, we continued our unit on “Rational Expressions and Equations.” I actually am really enjoying the unit. We reviewed adding and subtracting Rational Expressions and I want to review the ones with non-variable and variable denominators. The first step is to determine the lowest common denominator (LCD) Then you rewrite each fraction…

Week 14 in Precalc 11

This week we finished our unit on Absolute Value and Reciprocal Functions and we started our unit on “Rational Expressions and Equations.” I enjoyed the unit on Absolute Value Functions because even though we continued on with graphing, it was still different than any unit we’ve done before and learning about asymptotes was so interesting…
