Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, real-world scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.
Proving an Ecosystem’s Health Through Succession
Students engage in viewing day three of ecosystem changes in lab groups to determine if the ecosystem is healthy or unhealthy based on scientific data and factors.
Plant, Parts, and Function
Students use prior knowledge of body systems as they make connections to systems in plants. Students learn that some plant systems have similar functions as the respective animal systems. The lesson highlights the following systems in plants: root system, shoot system, vascular system, and reproductive system.
Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
Monohybrid and Dihybrid Crosses
Learners calculate the probability of genotypic inheritance and phenotypic expression using mono- and dihybrid crosses.
Mechanisms of Evolution Beyond Natural Selection
Learners analyze and evaluate the effects of other evolutionary mechanisms.
Evidence for Evolution
Learners analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular, and developmental.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
6.08 Bonus Video: Law of Sines—The Ambiguous Case
The Law of Sines can be used to solve for sides and angles of oblique triangles. However, in some cases more than one triangle may satisfy the given conditions. We refer to this as an ambiguous case.
2.07 Lurking and Confounding Variables
In this video, students learn the difference between lurking and confounding variables and how they affect results.
2.08 Generalizability of Results and Conclusions
In this video, students learn how to interpret results and draw conclusions based on them.
6.01 Probability and the Law of Large Numbers
In this video, students are introduced to the concept of probability using the Law of Large Numbers.
6.02 Probability Terminology
In this video, students learn key terminology associated with probability.
6.03 Venn Diagrams
In this video, students represent and calculate probabilities using Venn diagrams.
6.04 Independent and Mutually Exclusive Events
In this video, students calculate probabilities for independent events and mutually exclusive events.
6.05 Contingency Tables
In this video, students calculate probabilities using a two-way contingency table.
6.06 Tree Diagrams
In this video, students calculate conditional probabilities using a tree diagram.
6.07 Discrete Random Variables
In this video, students are introduced to discrete random variables.
6.08 The Binomial Distribution
In this videos, students use the binomial distribution to find the expected value, variance, and probabilities associated with a binomial random variable.
