  • Reminder….test tomorrow!
  • Here’s a review sheet outlining vocab, content, and skills you should be able to demonstrate. Ignore anything that involves phylogeny and phylogenetic trees. We’ll cover that after the test.
  • The test format:
    • 18 MC
    • 1 calculation question
    • 1 medium length free-response. Don’t forget, on the free-response question, don’t re-phrase the question, don’t write an introduction, and you don’t need to really pay attention to creative writing. Be clear, demonstrate that you know what you’re talking about, and get right to the point.

  • HW, due Wednesday (10/22) –
    • Hardy-Weinberg practice probz
    • Review mechanisms of natural selection and artificial selection.
    • Bring in materials for lab Wednesday. Here’s the Artificial Selection Lab handout for the lab we’ll start this week. Read through the lab and figure out what materials you might need to bring. All you’ll really need to bring is a soda or water bottle (500mL should be fine) and a phone with a camera (one per group is ok). I have all the rest of the supplies.
    • The AP BIO Google Calendar is up, so you can keep up to date with daily class activities and other important events.
