Molecular Biology and Primate Phylogenics
By counting differences in amino acids, biology stars examine the relationships between different primates. With information gleaned, they map out a phylogenic tree and discover common ancestry. You will need to create printable versions of the amino acid charts and blank phylogenic trees for your classes, but this is a well-planned resource that you can use in your AP Biology classes to help your learners explore evolutionary relationships.

Natural Selection Simulation
Students simulate the changes in a natural population of birds or other species. They establish baseline data of population fluctuation for a closed population with a stable food supply. They graph the data to complete their mutations.

Using Team Games Tournaments
Students review the unit on evolution and natural selection by playing a card game. Students take turns drawing a card from the stack and reading the question out aloud. The reader gives an answer. The other students, in turn may pass or challenge an answer.

Great Lakes Ecology
Students are able to use a secchi disk to measure the turbidity of water by determining the depth at which the sechi disk is no longer visible and using the data in a formula to quantify the results. They are able to use Vernier probes to condcut water quality testing for: dissolved oxygen, nitrates, pH, temperature, phosphorous and produce computer printouts of the data collected.

Special Segments in Triangles
In this special segments in triangles worksheet, 10th graders solve 86 various types of problems that include determining the measure of various triangles. They draw and label a figure that illustrates each situation. Then, students prove triangles congruent by the given theorem or postulate.
