- Anatomy and Physiology
Anatomy and Physiology
Use the E.O. Wilson's 4th Textbook on iTunes (free)
Cardiovascular, Excretory and Immune Systems
Quiz each other with released practice tests from invitationals.
Annotate your tests as you take them. This may help with tiebreakers!
- Chemistry Lab
-Get Mr. O'Donnell's sheet for chemistry and create a binder and see him for help!!
-Perform Labs fro practice.
- Circuit Lab
Go to the National Site...has sites for resources and downloadable powerpoints.
- Disease Detectives
Population growth + statistics + Pathogens = EpidemiologyActiveEpi online course to learn material
Read Emerging Epidemics to get a strong understanding of the field
University of Ottawa site contains an excellent summary of the study designs.
Know the 10 steps to investigate epidemiological outbreak
a) Cohort - retrospective or prospective
1) attack rate
2) Relative risk
1) odds ratio
Read Mortality and Morbidity weekly report
- Designer Genes
- Dynamic Planet
Dynamic PlanetResources for the 2019 Science Olympiad challenge in glaciers, glaciation, and long-term climate change.
- Experimental Design
Up to 3 people!!!
-Be sure to pay attention to the scoring rubric.
-check out old tests at scioly.com.
- Fermi Questions
Tab your field guide.
Organize your 3 ring binder but don't rely on it! It should be to look at a few times during the test. You will have 2-3 minutes per station!
Divide the list into sections, quiz each other every meeting.
Look at old tests!
- Geologic Mapping
Can be written, station or both (be prepared for both)
Make your own stereonet.
Intro Geology book. (see Mrs. Warnke for resources).
Be able to read Topographic maps and Structural geology maps
- Mission Possible
- Mousetrap Vehicle
- Protein Modeling
Start with learning proteins in "Cambell's AP Biology textbook
Compile a notebook and narrow it down as competition nears.
- Sounds of Music
- Water Quality
- Wright Stuff
Start with Freedom Flight plane and build from there.
Make lots-they break!!!
- Write It/Do It
Write It/Do It
Know the rules!!
Take your time on directions writing!
Less time for building accurately=More points.
15 steps in writing.
Switch roles to increase awareness of the needs of each other!
