I can demonstrate appropriate and safe techniques when working in the biology laboratory.
 I can identify the elements of a good experiment (IV, DV, control, etc.)
I can design and conduct an experiment in which valid data is collected.
I can identify constants in an experiment and recognize that errors result from an inability to keep a non-independent variable constant.

         I can collect and analyze data, whether it was given or collected by me.

I can predict future results based upon previous data collection and analysis.
I can identify experimental errors and determine the effect they will have on the data.
I can calculate a chi-square, determine when its use is appropriate and interpret the result.
 I can construct a null hypothesis and determine when its use is appropriate..
 I can differentiate between, and identify examples of innate and learned behavior.
  •  p.721 - Q2, Q3, Q11

 I can provide examples of cooperative behavior and how these behaviors increase the survival of some populations.

  •  p.721 - Q4, Q6

 I can provide examples of how organisms communicate with each other in response to stimuli.

  • Mastering Biology - Ch. 35

 I can graph different growth patterns of a population.

I can calculate growth patterns of population given birth rate, death rate, etc.

 I can differentiate between density dependent and independent factors.

  • p.737 - Q4, Q6, Q10
  • p.759 - Q6, Q14
  • p.779 - Q10
  • p.759 - Q9, Q10, Q15

 I can apply growth patterns to human populations.

         I can differentiate between biotic and biotic factors as well as determine their impact on an ecosystem.

  • p.759 - Q2, Q7, Q12, Q13
  • p.697 - Q1c, Q2a, Q16, Q19
  •  p.697 - Q2b
  • p.697 - Q14, 

I can explain that organisms use communication for a variety of reasons within a population and community. (Including reproduction, defense of a territory, pack behavior, warning coloration).
