Introduction to Lab #2 Introduction to Lab #1 - Bottle Growing Instructions - Here is what you need to bring. Lab Report Template Artificial Selection Google Sheet This is a long lab and will require you to come in and work on it in the mornings. You will need a lab report template and will be collecting data.
HOMEWORK: Complete the Chapter 22 Reading Guide and the Hardy Weinberg Study Guide Work on Fishy Frequencies Activity Bring Water Bottles
Day 6 - 2/21/20 - 2/24/20
Finish Fishy Frequencies Activity
Hardy-Weinberg Review/Practice Questions
Work on Lab #2 Lab Report Requirements for Lab #2: 1. Turn in your completed spread sheet
HOMEWORK: Hardy Weinberg Study Guide Work on Lab #2 if you didn't finish - You need to have a completed spreadsheet down to pg. s36 or figure 8. Your spreadsheet should look like figure 8. We will discuss what to do and how to use this sheet next week. Watch Evidence of Evolution and complete this Video Guide
Day 7 - 2/25/20 - 2/26/20
7.6 (Evidence of Evolution) & 7.7 (Common Ancestry)
Finish Lab #2 - Run 20 Generations, track data
Discuss Evidence of Evolution, specifically Common Ancestry
Geographical, geological, physical, biochemical and mathematical
Evolution is ongoing - Populations are continuing to evolve
resistance to antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides or chemotherapy
pathogens evolve and cause emergent diseases
Get a partner - Research and Present a current example of Evolution - You can search things such as "Current Evolution Examples Biology" or "How are humans evolving right now"
We will do a walk about where one partner stays and presents while the other walks around and learns. We will switch half way through so everyone can present and learn. Notes will be due at the end of class. HOMEWORK: Classification Video and guide Cladogram Video and Guide
HOMEWORK: Speciation Prezi - 5 Causes of Microevolution - Go over this presentation, stop at the examples on the end. You should take some notes on the main topics covered. Finish Chapter 26 Reading Guide Comparing DNA Video and Guide Watch this video on Phylogenetics
Day 10 - 3/5/20 - 3/6/20
Finish Speciation, Cladograms and Phylogenetic Trees Discuss a few more examples/topics from the video last night.
Go to the BLAST LAB on the AP Lab Page Complete the designing and Conducting Independent Investigations section
HOMEWORK: Finish any Assignments (Chapter 24 Reading Guide) BLAST Lab is not homework, we will finish next class Watch this video and complete this video guide on population variation
Day 11 - 3/9/20 - 3/10/20
7.11 (Extinction) & 7.12 (Variations in Populations)
Finish The BLAST Lab
Discussion on Extinction - Speciation rate/Extinction rate = diversity Niches
Variation Discussion - Increased ability to respond to changes in an environment. More Resilient Alleles in different conditions can be successful or harmful.
HOMEWORK: Cheetah Newsela Article - Click on Newsela link on the left menu bar in CANVAS. Read this article, annotate/highlight important information related to evolutionary vocabulary, extinction and variation in cheetahs. on the origins of life video and guide Abiogenesis video and guide
Day 12 - 3/11/20 - 3/12/20
7.13 (Origins of Life on Earth)
What to know from Chapter 25:
The 4 main stages of the origin of life from non-living matter
What came first, RNA or DNA? Be able to provide evidence
Understand that fossils can provide timelines of organisms past and present
You should know the order of basic evolution of key events in the history of life. You do not need to know specific dates.
Discussion on the Origins of Life on Earth, what did you find interesting. What were the major events in the history of life? HOMEWORK: Finish Chapter 25 Reading Guide and any other assignments you haven't completed.
