    J2 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 19/1/2013
    Today the J2s finished the Endocrine control 2nd assignment. It was badly done and most of the pitfalls lie in answering techniques and understanding of what the question wants from them. We will move on to a theory lesson on Nervous System next week. It’s the start of a brand new chapter, so if you are bringing your friends along, come next week! 🙂

    J1 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 19/1/2013
    Today is the first lesson of this year’s JC1 biology class. We went through the administrative matters regarding the syllabus outline and assessment formats as well as recommended texts for further reading. This lesson, we also managed to complete the first part (Carbohydrates) of the first Chapter on Biological Molecules. Next week we would do the second part (Proteins) and the third (Lipids).

    Good news is that there is finally no homework this week for both classes! Only for this week 😉 Stay tuned!

    J2 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 26/1/2013
    Today we had a fun lesson on a challenging topic of Nervous Control. We learned about the organisation of the nervous system, the structure of the neuron, before we dwelved into the mechanics of nervous impulse/action potential transmission along the neuron. Next week we will transit into the second part of this chapter, touching on the tranmission of nervous impulse from one neuron to the next, which is otherwise termed “synaptic transmission”. It will be another lesson taught with activities and games so do look forward! 🙂

    J1 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 26/1/2013
    Today the J1 class completed the section on carbohydrates, proteins and also lipids. In other words, we completed the theory part of the entire first chapter of Biological molecules. The class has been told to complete the mcq and structured assignments for this chapter and next week we will review these assignments as a closure to this topic.

    Here’s a video on Action Potentials tranmission along an unmyelinated neuron, enjoy!

    J2 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 2/2/2013
    In today’s class we transited to the the second part of Nervous Control, touching on the tranmission of nervous impulse from one neuron to the next, which is otherwise termed “synaptic transmission”. We played the game of Synaptic Tag where Norman and Rachel acted as the acetylcholinesterase enzymes in the synaptic cleft, while Srija Daphne and Thomas acted as the vesicles containing neurotransmitters acetylcholine in the presynaptic knob. The rest of class acted as the receptors on the surface of the post-synaptic neuron. As the depolarisation reached the presynaptic membrane, the vesicles started to throw out huge amounts of neurotransmitters (we used paper balls!) and a competition between acetylcholinesterase enzymes and its substrate acetylcholine resulted in very few acetylcholine molecules getting to the receptors.

    We concluded the lesson with 10 mcq questions from our MCQ assignment for this chapter, as well as the description table of synaptic neurotransmission. Homework for this week is to complete MCQ as well as Assignment 1.

    NOTE: NEXT WEEK’S LESSON WILL BE FROM 9-11AM AS IT FALLS ON CNY EVE, AND THE CENTRE CLOSES EARLY FOR REUNION DINNER. 🙂

    J1 Biology Class 3.30pm-5.30pm 26/1/2013
    Today the J1 class completed the assignment for Biological molecules, rounding up the chapter. We will move on the Cell Organelles and Function as well as the Plasma Membrane next! Homework: to complete last question of biological molecules assignment and read up on the next chapter!

    NOTE: NO LESSON NEXT WEEK. SUBSEQUENT TWO LESSONS WILL BE EXTENDED BY 1HOUR EACH. 🙂

    J2 Biology Class 9.00 – 11.00am 9/2/2013
    Today we reviewed the set of Nervous control multiple choice questions and went through the first question of Assignment 1. Some people did very well despite this chapter being quite challenging! Srija did well for MCQ, while Bernadette and Fujie did well for Assignment 1. Keep up the good work and I hope to see more of such achievements! 🙂

    Homework for the holiday: Nervous control assignment 2.

    We will be wrapping up this chapter of Nervous Control on 23/2/2013. From March onwards (2/3/2013) we will do Genetic Basis for Variation. As usual, the first lesson (2/3/2013) will be a theory class on this brand new topic. So bring your friends along if they are keen to join the class!

    We started out on a new chapter – Cellular structure and functions, and learned about the various organelles within a cell. Remember that these organelles are categorised into double membrane, single membrane and no membrane organelles. For each organelle, you are required to be able to
    1. describe its structure
    2. describe its functions
    3. identify and label the organelle if given an electron microscope image

    Homework: To complete mcq and assignment 1!

    J2 Biology Class 5.30-7.30pm 16/2/2013
    Today we completed both assignments 1 and 2 under nervous control, productive lesson indeed! Learned much about the various drugs that act as stimulants and depressants on the nervous system, how they target the various aspects of the system such as synaptic transmission and axonal conduction.

    Homework: Read up notes on Genetic basis for variation

    Next lesson will be a theory class on Genetic basis for variation. Its a brand new topic we are starting on, so bring your friends along if they are keen to join the class!

    We will move on to Enzymes next lesson! Today we completed the chapter on Cellular Structure and Functions.

    J2 Biology Class 5.30-7.30pm 2/3/2013
    We completed the theory part of Genetic Basis for Variation today, and moved on to the MCQ assignment. There were many misconceptions and inappropriate understanding of certain concepts so we spent some time going through the questions. Note that if gender is stated, it must not be taken into the calculation. But if it is not, then consider the probability of the child being of a certain gender. Homework is to complete assignment 2 for those who have done assignment 1 – and for those who have yet to complete assignment, complete both by next Saturday.

    As you may refer to the post above, on the year’s schedule, we are on time. 🙂 We will end this chapter before March ends . When end of March comes we do Evolution and soon the entire core syllabus of H2 biology will be over. Hang in there!

    We started on a brand new chapter today – Enzymes! This is a little reminder for myself that we have not gone through the assignment on membrane transport. Shall do that next week! Homework for today is enzyme MCQ as well as Assignment 1.

    J2 Biology Class 5.30-7.30pm 2/3/2013
    We completed the MCQ assignment for Genetic basis for variation today, and have moved on to Assignment 1. We stopped after finishing the question on Malvidin producing plants..shall complete it next week together with Assignment 2! The following week (23/3) we will commence on Diversity and Evolution. It is the beginning of a new topic so do bring your friends along if they would like to join the class!

    IMPORTANT PIECE OF NEWS
    FILE CHECK ON 23 MARCH. PLEASE FILE YOUR NOTES AND WORKSHEETS ALL IN ORDER IN A LARGE RING FILE.

    J1 Biology Class 3.30-5.30pm 2/3/2013
    We went through the assignment on plasma membranes and membrane transport. Thereafter we moved on to clear some doubts on cell division. Lastly, We completed the enzymes MCQ as well as the first two questions of Enzymes assignment 1. Next lesson would be on this Friday, Good Friday, 9.30 – 11.30 am. We will use the time to complete the whole chapter on enzymes. 🙂

    J2 Biology Class 5.30-7.30pm 2/3/2013
    We completed GBV assignment 1 and GBV assignment 2, except the last 2 questions. So the next lesson we will spend the first half an hour to complete these last 2 questions, and the remaining time will be used to teach a new chapter on Evolution. Bring your friends if they wish to join the class! The notes have been given out today. Let’s welcome 2 new students Naushad and Helen! 🙂
    Next Lesson would be on Friday (good friday), 11.30- 1.30pm.

    We completed enzymes assignment 1 as well as the first question in assignment 2. Next lesson would be next Saturday and we will round up the enzymes chapter within the first half an hour or so. We will move on next to do genomics!

    J2 Biology Class 11.30-1.30pm 29/3/2013
    We are left with GBV assignment 2 last 2 questions, this is a reminder so that we will come back to it soon. Today we went through Evolution part 1, part 2 as well as evidences of evolution. Tomorrow will be the second and last lesson on this chapter and we will attempt some questions!
