Last week, we looked at squares and square roots plus worked on our Dream Basement Project. This week, we will complete looking at squares and square roots, master using the Pythagorean Theorem, and continue working on our Dream Basements.
Last week, we looked at some common human genetic traits handed down to us from our parents, the difference between dominant and recessive genes, and the difference between homozygous recessive/ dominant and heterozygous recessive/dominant. This week, we will look how a recessive gene that carried the hemophilia disease altered the nobility in Europe at the turn of the century.
Last week, we studied how Guatemala and many other Central American countries celebrate Holy Week. We also built on a discussion Father Paul had with the students about poverty and how in other third world countries the focus day to day is not material wealth, but rather, supporting their families and others in their community for daily survival. We watched a very good documentary on a project 4 college men did to learn how difficult it is to survive on one dollar a day. The men went to a part of Guatemala across the lake from where I do my mission work to live for 8 weeks on the average of a dollar a day. This week, we will look at alms giving and how God commands us to serve others by giving of ourselves and resources to others in need.
