Scribe Post: Monday January 23, 2012


Today in class we: 
-Went over semester grades (posted on door by ID number)
-Received sheets on course recommendations
- Candy Evolution
-Saw videos from the PBS Video Series- Evolution (UP pgs 7-8)
-Notes Chapter 1 Obj # 1-6 (We didn't get to the notes today)

The theory of evolution is attributed to Charles Darwin (pictured below)
The videos talked a lot about Charles Darwin and his ideas. He was a naturalist born in the early 1800s and was intelligent with a good family reputation. Although he was trained and went to school to go into the medical field he pursued a different path. He was most interested in "the common ancestor" or explaining how things became to be what they are today. He went on a voyage for 5 years collecting samples that ultimately led to his later publications. The path he took when collecting these samples is shown below.

 If you would like an overview of Charles Darwin BBC has a good one

If you missed the video in class or would like to view it again for studying purposes I have tracked it down on YouTube. Here is the video on Charles Darwin:

HW: 1. Read CH 1 p. 8-13
2. Read CH 13
3. Start UP p. 5 (Internet)
4. read Darwin article
5. course req's
**Note: Some of the reading homework assigned was already done when we studied Ecology, however it wouldn't be a bad idea to refresh yourselves with the information again.
