Meet Mr.Leon!

Mr.Leon has 13 years of experience teaching Biology, Biomedical Science and Chemistry. He graduated from UCLA with a major in Molecular Cell Developmental Biology and a Master's in Education. When he is not teaching, he is a UCLA Admissions Reader as well. In his spare time, Mr.Leon loves to play tennis, go to the beach, and visit science museums.

Biomedical Science Learning Targets

Unit 1 Learning Targets

  1. Recognize that processing a crime scene involves purposeful documentation of the conditions at the scene and the collection of any physical evidence. 
  2. Describe how evidence at a crime scene, such as blood, hair, fingerprints, and shoeprints can help forensic investigators determine what might have occurred and help identify or exonerate potential suspects. 
  3. Recognize that bloodstain patterns left at a crime scene can help investigators establish the events that took place during the crime.
  4. Recognize that all external variables in an experiment need to be controlled. 
  5. Analyze key information gathered at a simulated crime scene. 
  6. Design a controlled experiment. 
  7. Graph and analyze experimental data to determine the height associated with bloodstain pattern

Chemistry Learning Targets

Unit 1: Atomic Structure

  • CH 4 Atomic Structure
  • CH 5 Electrons in Atoms
  • CH 6 The Periodic Table
  • CH 25 Nuclear Chemistry

HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms

 

 

Unit 2: Bonding

  • CH 7 Ionic and Metallic Bonding
  • CH 8 Covalent Bonding

HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms

HS-PS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.

HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.

 

 

Unit 3: Chemical Reactions

  • CH 9 Chemical Names and Formulas
  • CH 10 Chemical Quantities
  • CH 11 Chemical Reactions
  • CH 12 Stoichiometry

HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties

HS-PS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles..

HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
