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.
What’s the Verdict? An Investigation of Herbicide Drift on Grapevines
Students will investigate the possible effects of herbicide drift on grape production by making inferences from an article about a local vineyard and using various experimental materials.
Square Root Regression
This lesson is a student discovery lesson that culminates in square root regression with technology. Students will use their study of inverses, the relationship between quadratic and square root functions, their previous knowledge of regression, and determine how to find the square root regression of real-world data.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
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.
Energy and Matter in Cells
Learners compare changes in matter that take place during energy conversion processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
Energy and Matter in Ecosystems
Learners analyze food chains, webs, and pyramids to determine how energy flows and matter cycles through ecosystems.
The Role of Enzymes
Learners investigate the role of enzymes at the molecular level as well as through “real-world” applications.
Learners explore and describe how succession affects biodiversity by creating an island ecosystem in an interactive game.
Predict Monohybrid Crosses
Biology Kid2Kid videos present biology concepts taught to a student by a student. This resource contains videos that explain monohybrid crosses in both English and Spanish.
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.
Objects in Motion
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning activities for students learning about the concepts of distance, speed, and acceleration. IPC TEKS (4)(A)
Domain and Range: Numerical Representations
Given a function in the form of a table, mapping diagram, and/or set of ordered pairs, the student will identify the domain and range using set notation, interval notation, or a verbal description as appropriate.
Transformations of Square Root and Rational Functions
Given a square root function or a rational function, the student will determine the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(x) + d, f(bx), and f(x - c) for specific positive and negative values.
Transformations of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Given an exponential or logarithmic function, the student will describe the effects of parameter changes.
Solving Square Root Equations Using Tables and Graphs
Given a square root equation, the student will solve the equation using tables or graphs - connecting the two methods of solution.
Functions and their Inverses
Given a functional relationship in a variety of representations (table, graph, mapping diagram, equation, or verbal form), the student will determine the inverse of the function.
