Problem/Objective: How can exercise boost memory? How does age affect memory boost?

Early/Pre-observations: –An exercise routine could help memory improvement

-With age, one type of memory automatically improves

-There are physical differences between brains that have a better memory than others

Questions: –What do you do to improve your memory?

-Does physical health affect mental health?

-What aspect of memory improves with age increase?

Hypothesis: By exercising and losing weight, people could increase their memory. Exercise tends to reduce the amount of tissue lost as age increases and losing weight will improve how glucose regulates. Improved glucose regulation is associated with better memory.

Sickle-Cell Disease

What is it?

Sickle-Cell Disease is a genetic disorder that affects the blood. People produce an abnormal form of hemoglobin. Sickle-shaped red blood cells cannot carry as much oxygen as normal shaped cells.


Describe the Genetics.


You would inherit sickle-cell disease from your parents, who may be carriers with the sickle cell trait or parents with the sickle cell disease. In order to inherit the sickle cell hemoglobin, you are born with it and if you inherit one sickle gene, you have the sickle cell trait (meaning that you will produce both normal hemoglobin and abnormal hemoglobin. You will usually not have symptoms of the disease). If you inherit two sickle cell genes, you have the sickle cell disease. The allele for the sickle cell trait is most common in people of African ancestry and the allele for the sickle cell trait is codominant with the normal allele.

multicellular heterotrophs

Locker #349, Per.1
Summary of Science Notes

We are going to go onto a magical and awesome trip into the animal kingdom. Here, we will find animals that are multicellular heterotrophs whose cells lack cell walls. There are two types of phylums for the Animalia Kingdom- vertebrates which have backbones and invertebrates that have no backbone. Within these groups, they share common ancestors. We are going to venture into the far expanses of the creatures sponges and cnidarians, one of the simplest animals.

HW Questions

Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. There are different aspects of matter including boiling and melting temperatures.

Matter can be divided into mixtures and substances. Mixtures contain at least two kinds of matter and there is either a homogeneous mixture or heterogeneous mixture. Homogeneous means that all the samples are the same throughout and heterogeneous means that not all samples are the same. Also, substances include elements and compounds. Elements contain only one type of atom and compounds contain more than one type of atom.
