1. PPT Evolution via Selection
2. Lab B: Reproductive Growth patterns
3. Pre-lab C: Selection; agree upon variables, constants, methods (rules), table design; practice!
4. Discuss your specific Selection Case Study
HW: • Take a second approach to learning the vocabulary:
paraphrase; examples; syn./ant; illustrate (?)
• Review the content visually via BozemanScience or linked Prezi presentations (Foundations page)
• Next notes set: 19.2, through p397
1. 'Median' essay excerpt stamped, discussed
2. re: Lab SE Mea Culpa
Compare SD practice problem results
Calculate and graph reproductive potential of seed pod
HW: • Bring in a finch 'beak' - a tool you can use to pick up seeds - for selection lab.
• actively revisit notes: highlight, clarify, summarize
• Graph Repro potential data from lab - use both linear and exponential scales)
• Read of your evolution case study- look for the elements that lead to and are evidence of selection
1. NO sloppy science! PPT
2. How varied? Standard Deviation as a statistical measure : PPT, practice set, your lab data
3. Selection tenet #2: Over-Reproduction
Predict the reproductive potential of a species
HW: Finish Variation statistical analysis & graphic
Practice finding SD via the problem* on the back of the SD handout*
Start defining topic vocabulary*
read annotate, complete SOAPS*: The Median isn't the Message *
*All these docs are available in the classroom, as well as on the Foundations: Evolution page of this website
1. The Reluctant Mr Darwin: stamp, discuss
2. Variation, continued
3. Demonstrate variation graphically; find mode
4. Standard deviation/Standard error: introduced
HW: from the text. read/take notes: 1.3, 19.1, 19.3; 20.1, 20.2
Welcome to AP Biology!
