Tips for the wave height data table
  • You will need to rotate the globe using the hand tool to continue to be able to see the leading edge of the wave.
  • You will need to estimate the wave height based on the color scale.
  • The crest of the leading wave is positive in height and colored yellow-orange-red. The trough between the waves is negative, because the trough of the waves is lower than the average sea level.
  • Note that the wave height will not change dramatically over time, but it does change! Watch carefully!
  • Your estimate will be based on the color scale bar, which does not have a lot of differentiation. Do your best to estimate the wave height.
  • Notice how the tsunami moves in the open ocean compared to how it moves near islands and continents.

Genetic Disorder Report

*Focus your research on the  Basic Facts*

If you are doing a disorder report, be sure to include the following information:

  1. The name of your disorder and origin of name.
  2. What the symptoms are? Symptoms are the things that are “wrong”.
  3. The long-term effects, if there are any. 
  4. What causes the genetic disorder, if it is known. (which chromosome?) 
  5.  What are the possible treatments or cures? Is genetic engineering or gene therapy a possible cure? What about stem cell research?

If you are doing a report on one of the other genetic topics, be sure to include the following information:

  1. A complete description (what is it)?
  2. History – when, where and who were involved in major advancements?
  3. Examples of how it is being used today
  4. Problems and opportunities for society in the future.  Any legal issues?

* Don't Forget to get the Bibliography information (Name of website and address)
