• Take this short Tech Survey, so I can identify and act on any student tech needs
• Refresh your scientific methods skills, and get a taste of AP Bio work via the research summary in Working with Data: Amphibian Declines. There are two versions linked to the assignment: a printable, hand-graphing option, and a writeable, Sheets-graphing version. Your choice.
• Tyrone Hayes summarizes his research, and raises more troubling questions, on npr and at TEDx (listen to either source). Then post a response, and comment on your classmates responses, in the Jupiter Forum (in your messages of that platform.
