25 – History of Life on Earth 26 – Phylogeny and the Tree of Life Suggested Labs Population Genetics Evo-Devo – videos from HHMI Blast Lab Unit 8 – Ecology 52 – Introduction to Ecology 53 – Population Ecology 54 – Community Ecology 55 – Ecosystems 56 – Conservation Biology 51 – Animal Behavior (self-study) Suggested Labs Animal Behavior revisited– red worms or pillbugs Transpiration – whole plant method Artificial selection Conservation of a species - project Lab Schedule – by Big Idea and Content Unit Below is a table that correlates the labs by each Big Idea and Content Unit. It is hoped that all labs listed per Big Idea can be covered, but at least a minimum of two will be covered in Inquiry format. The science practices covered in each lab are listed in AP Biology Investigative Labs: an Inquiry Based Approach. Big Idea 1: Evolution Lab – Artificial Selection – predator/prey simulation Lab – Population Genetics Lab – DNA Comparisons by BLAST Content Unit Unit 8 Unit 7 Unit 7 Big Idea 2: Cellular Processes Lab – Diffusion & Osmosis Lab - Photosynthesis – computer probes Content Unit Unit 2 Unit 3

Lab – Cellular Respiration Unit 3 Big Idea 3: Genetics and Information Transfer Lab – Cell Division: Mitosis and Meiosis Lab - Bacterial Transformation Lab – Restriction Enzyme Analysis of DNA Content Unit Unit 2 and Unit 5 Unit 6 Unit 6 Big Idea 4: Interactions Lab – Energy Dynamics – aquatic ecosystems Lab – Whole Plant Transpiration Lab – Behavior – red worms or pillbugs Lab – Enzymes – computer probes Content Unit Unit 8 Unit 8 Unit 1 and 8 Unit 3 Additional labs will be conducted to deepen students’ conceptual understanding and to reinforce the application of science practices within a hands-on, discoverer based environment. Directed Inquiry will be the most common method of lab instruction used. The course will provide opportunities for students to develop, record, and communicate the results of their laboratory investigations. Lab report format will vary and may include the following: formal lab report, PowerPoint presentation, poster board presentation, oral presentation, response to directed questions on the lab or other format. Students will be required to maintain a portfolio of their lab activities on a flash drive or other storage device to take with them to college. Homework A selection of short answer questions will be assigned for each chapter. About 80% of the questions will be drill or practice on the Level 1 items to help students reinforce and master these concepts. Students should focus on the task words (shown in bold font text) in the questions such as discuss , explain , identify , compare and contrast etc. when answering these questions. These same bold font task words will be used in essay questions on exams.

    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.
