LABORATORY EXERCISE 2: COASTAL SAGE SCRUB PLANT COMMUNITY
A group presentation week 10 will be based in part on data collected in this lab. You may want to bring a camera with you to
document activities to use in your presentation.

In lab 5, we studied evolution by looking at the processes leading to modification, the changes in genotypic and phenotypic
frequencies across generations. This lab we will by looking at the patterns of organismal diversity highlighting the ancestordescen
Postlab Quiz 1
1. When going either north or south from the equator,
a) temperatures will increase and precipitation will decrease
b) temperatures will increase and precipitation will increase
c) temperatures will decrease and precipitation will increase
LABORATORY EXERCISE 5: Variation within Populations
1. Describe why each of the three conditions is needed for natural selection to occur.
2. Explore how finite population size and fitness differences among phenotypes affect variation.
LABORATORY EXERCISE 3: PILLBUG MARK/RELEASE/RECAPTURE
This is a two-week laboratory.
1) Explain why biologists estimate population sizes.
2) List the assumptions and describe the methodology of Mark-Release-Recapture.
3) Explain why knowledge o

Acceleration Due To Gravity (contains pre lab assignment*)
This laboratory involves an experimental determination of a value for the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the earth, g. You will: Measure g for different fall distances.
Measurements & Error Analysis (Includes Pre Lab Assignment)
To learn the skill of performing careful measurements, understanding the nature of errors that occur during measurements, keep track of significant figures, use some basic data analysis
Projectile Motion (Pre Lab Asssignment Included)
This laboratory investigates the motion of projectiles under the influence of gravity. You will do two experiments: 1. Measure the projectiles range and time-of-flight as a function of launching
Centripetal Force (*Includes Pre Lab Assignment)
This lab has a different style then your previous labs. It is meant to lead you through the process of testing for yourself the physical theory of centripetal force. A good scienti
Newtons Second Law (Pre-lab Assignment included)
This week we will make measurements of the relationship between Force and Acceleration, or Newtons second law, i.e., v

The lab will consist of two separate sets of measurements: Vary m keeping F co
The Second Law in Rotation (Includes Pre Lab Assignment)
r When a force causes an object to rotate, the angular acceleration , depends on the force F , the point at which the r force is applied r , and the moment of inertia of the object I.
