Study Guide – Lab Exam #1: FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE. Try to understand big concepts (inter vs intra, etc) and then remember examples of those concepts. That way you can run through the concept in a real world way and you’ll have more to pull from in your memory. Goals and Vocabulary for Each Lab: Lab 1 Goals: 1. Understand and provide examples of the major kinds of variation that are apparent in the natural world. 2. Understand and provide examples of the implications of the differences between genetic and non-genetic variation. 3. Understand the evolutionary implications of both interspecific and intraspecific variation. 4. Understand the way in which variation is compared using the F test. 5. Understand the meaning of the terms Variance, Degrees of Freedom, and Probability Level . In addition to understanding the meaning of these terms, you must know how and why they are important in measuring biological variation. Just KNOW: If F calculated > F critical , H 0 is rejected.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
