Bio 118 Spring 2015 Concept Maps Concept maps are graphical diagrams that show the relationship between concepts. They are very useful in organizing and representing your understanding of a topic, and are excellent study guides. During the Activity period, each group will prepare a concept map with a list of related terms taken from your text. There is never just one version of a correct concept map, so while each group has an identical set of terms, no two groups will create an identical map. Use your texts, notes, and laptops with access to www—this is an open book, open access to knowledge activity, and an excellent review of some materials to be covered in Lecture Exam 2! After the teams have finished their concept maps, one group will volunteer to draw their concept map on the board and discuss as a class. Point out good connections and organization and offer additional connections or correct any errors. Pre-Lab Assignment : Before lab, complete the below sheet with definitions of all of the terms. In- Lab Assignment : At the end of class you will work in groups to develop your concept map. Do not leave until your TA approves of your final map. Note the following— Your concept map must have a title Each term must be used Each term must be connected to at least one other term by a labeled arrow. How to create a Concept Map: 1. Evaluate the term list and decide on the overall theme . This theme will be the title of your concept map. 2. Pull out the terms which are central to the theme and place in them in the middle. Think about how these concepts connect. 3. Connect these concepts with arrows. Articulate the relationship by labeling the arrows with a few words. These linking phrases should be as succinct as possible. Verbs or short phrases work best. These linking phrases should create a complete sentence between the concepts.

    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.
