Weekly Summary 10/23

This week in biology, we learned about cell organelles. We studied how the cell functions and how it is interconnected. We learned about ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, cell theory, golgi body, cytoskeleton, and many more organelles. We were first introduced to this unit by reading a case study and studying types of diseases. The case study detailed a couple whose child had Leigh’s disease, and what the doctors were doing to find out what was wrong. Then, we researched four different diseases and the organelle they affect, and then wrote a paper on one particular disease. On Friday, we will be taking a quiz and finishing our article of the week (you can view mine here). Finally, for homework we will be outlining chapter 5 in our biology book. Can’t wait to learn more about cells and organelles next week!
