How to get ready for Bio with Mrs. Motyka

By. Kate Scott / Freshman writer

As an upcoming sophomore scheduled to take biology, I can say that the subject seems to be pretty intimidating. What follows is an interview with biology teacher Shirley Motyka. The questions come from next year’s biology students.

Q: What do I need for your class?

A: You’re gonna need a four pocket folder for each marking period or you can have four separate folders and a notebook for notes.

Q: How can I come into the new school year with a good idea of what I will be learning?

A: Overall students will be learning about the scientific method, basic biochemistry, cells, energy, genetics, Heredity, evolution, and ecology.

Q: Is there a lot of homework?

A: If you want to do well you will spend at least 15 minutes going over new and old information. You do not want to wait to study.

Q: What is the best way to study for the tests?

A: At the beginning of every until I ill post a study and an ejective of every unit.

Q: What do you recommend doing to set yourself up for the best grades?

A: Be ready to lock in everyday in class. If you miss a day you have to make up work. Try to not  miss school during the year.

Q: What exactly is biology?

A: The study of living things. One of my major goals is that you understand medical terminology. I want my students to be able to have an understanding data conversation with their doctors.
