   In our unit of cells and systems, my class  and I are learning about different diseases. Kurtis and I are doing Bronchitis. Other groups are doing other diseases, but I'm just going to focus on Bronchitis because that's the only one I know about.
   Bronchitis is a disease that affects the Mucus membrane of the bronchi(The bronchi is located in the upper portion of your lungs. Some symptoms include Coughing(it is the main symptom), chest pain, wheezing, shortness of breath, inflammation of the bronchi, runny nose and chills. There are 2 types of Bronchitis, Acute and Chronic. Acute last for about 3 weeks while Chronic last for 3 months. If you have Bronchitis, most treatments are self care. Like getting more rest, drinking more fluids, and breathing in warm air. There are some medications, like antibiotics, cough medication and other medication. You can't protect yourself from this disease, but there are steps you can take to help. You can stop or never stop smoking, avoid second had smoke, dust and polluted air, and you can get the yearly flu shot.

Because it had more "cents"

3. Why is 6 afraid of 7?

4.What did one math book say to the other?
Don't bother me I've got my own problems!


1.The Merchant

A merchant can place 8 large boxes or 10 small boxes into a carton for shipping.
In one shipment, he sent a total of 96 boxes. If there are more large boxes than small boxes, how many cartons did he ship?

(Tip) He uses both boxes more then once.

Immune System - Diseases Project

Today we are finishing our projects in the Immune System. We are finishing our research so it can get approved by our teacher. Me and my partner Gabrielle is doing Leukaemia. We are partnered into groups and we each have our own Diseases were researching. I picked Leukaemia because i wanted to learn a little bit more about cancer and teach others what i know.

 So basically we have to put our projects in our own words and make sure its not right of wikipedia or something like that. When we think were finish finding all of out research me go to our teacher and she approves of our work. If there are any big words we have to make sure we understand them. We are suppose to add a you tube video to our project. Just so our video could do a little bit of explaining.

We had to get links and titles and what year the information was from and for pictures. For me it felt like ages when we had to copy down all the information. In our own words we had define what leukaemia was in 50 words. We had to tell what it our disease effected and what the side effects are. We had to write what could prevent us from getting the disease. If there are any treatments and how would you find out if you had the disease. We had to list five interesting facts about the disease and just find a you tube video. That's what we had to do for our information. When we found all the information we had to pick a choice of presenting it. Gabrielle and I picked a power point, and some other students pick to present wit poster paper.

This is basically what the information paper looked like.

Bacterial Disease's

Today we are continuing on researching our bacterial disease's (if you click on the purple words, it will take you back to Steven's post and it will give you more information on what we had to search up). Some of the bacterial disease's we had to look up were: Leprosy (it causes damage to limbs, face, respiratory system,and blindness), leukaemia, diabetes, the black plague, rabies...etc. (I only put some information on the one because Jade and I searched it, and other groups searched the other ones.). The research part of the project is due for tomorrow, but the whole project is due on the 17-18. this project is going to be presented as either a power point, poster, prezzie, play, video, or any way we want.

P.S. Our class is trying to get 2000 viewers, and if we reach our goal we get a party, so if you know anyone how might be interested, could you PLEASE  ask them to to check it out!

Disease Project

Today in class we started a research project about diseases. We all chose a partner and then we chose a disease to research. We have to find out what causes the disease and then what kind of disease. What part of the body it affects, find images of the disease affecting the body. What are the side affects, what can be done to prevent the disease. What are the treatments for the disease, how does someone find out they have the disease. What are five interesting facts about the disease, find a picture of what the disease is.

Bill Nye - Germs

Today in class we watched a Bill Nye the Science Guy video about Germs and how they affect your body. There are three different types of germs they are Bacteria, a Virus, and Pathogen.  Bacteria can have a positive or negative effect on your body, a Virus usually has a negative effect on your body, and Pathogen is a type of bacteria that causes a disease, so it has a negative effect.  Your body’s first defence system fights against things that harm you and can tell whether something is negative or not. Your body’s second defence system just knows if something is negative. The anti-body attach to the germs so the white blood cells can know to attack the germs (the anti-bodies and white blood cells work together to defeat the germs).
