CP Biology for 10/21/16

We started our activity on how population dynamics affect the natural selection. Student groups cut open an okra vegetable and counted the seeds.

They then calculated the amount of time it would take for okra to cover all the land on Earth if all the seeds survived in succeeding generations.

Students developed a model of their data (most did a graph.) And tried to develop a mathematical expression for their data.

They then did a reading to collect evidence that supported their model and mathematical expression.

Students were assigned a four Quizizz questions. They should go to join.quizizz.comand enter 324115 to answer the questions.

Students were also assigned a writing prompt (to be turned in on schoology).

The writing prompt:

Construct a written explanation using evidence for how the ability of a species to increase in number effects the population over time. Use data from the activity okra and POGIL) and textual evidence from Thomas Malthus to support your claim.

We started our activity on how population dynamics affect the natural selection. Student groups cut open an okra vegetable and counted the seeds.

They then calculated the amount of time it would take for okra to cover all the land on Earth if all the seeds survived in succeeding generations.

Students developed a model of their data (most did a graph.) And tried to develop a mathematical expression for their data.

They then did two readings to collect evidence that supported their model and mathematical expression.

Students were assigned a four Quizizz questions. They should go to join.quizizz.comand enter 324115 to answer the questions.

Students were also assigned a writing prompt (to be turned in on schoology).

CP Biology for 10/19/16

Today, students worked in groups to investigate how population growth is regulated. Student took a look and analyzed three models collaboratively.If you you were absent, the the packet is available on schoology Population Growth.

Next, we started the started our activity on how population dynamics affect the natural selection. Student groups cut open an okra vegetable and counted the seeds. They will need this information for their next class.

Honors Biology B-Day 10/18/16

Today, students worked in groups to investigate how population growth is regulated. Student took a look and analyzed three models collaboratively.If you you were absent, the the packet is available on schoology Population Growth.

Next, we started the started our activity on how population dynamics affect the natural selection. Student groups cut open an okra vegetable and counted the seeds. The three classes I had today all stopped at different points.

2B: Has gathered information and filled out their data table.

3B: Has gathered information data, they are expected to created a model for their data and a mathematical equation that represents their data. Then, tell what their equation explains.This will be checked when they enter class.

4B: Finished all three models, and just had the chance to count their seeds.

 

DON”T FORGET THOSE LAB REPORTS ARE DUE BY THE END OF THE WEEK ON SCHOOLOGY!!
