###
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.

###
Proving an Ecosystem’s Health Through Succession

**Students engage in viewing day three of ecosystem changes in lab groups to determine if the ecosystem is healthy or unhealthy based on scientific data and factors. **

6.08 Bonus Video: Law of Sines—The Ambiguous Case

The Law of Sines can be used to solve for sides and angles of oblique triangles. However, in some cases more than one triangle may satisfy the given conditions. We refer to this as an ambiguous case.

###
8 Chapter 5: Introduction to Trigonometry and Graphs

In this chapter, we will explore angle measures and the trigonometric ratios, including graphing and inverses.

###
5 Chapter 7: Sequences and Series

In this chapter, we introduce sequences and series, some of their applications, and the Binomial Theorem.

###
3 Chapter 4: Systems of Equations

In this chapter, we will explore the methods used to solve systems of equations, and real-world situations involving systems of equations.

###
6 Chapter 2: Polynomial and Rational Functions

In this chapter, we will explore beyond linear functions and learn about polynomial and rational functions.

###
8 Chapter 6: Trigonometric Identities and Applications

In this chapter, students will learn a robust list of trigonometric identities along with their applications. Students will also be introduced to vectors.

###
7 Chapter 8: Conic Sections, Parametric Equations, and Polar Coordinates

In this chapter, we introduce conic sections, parametric equations, and polar coordinates.

###
5 Chapter 1: Introduction to Functions and Graphs

In this chapter, students are introduced to lines, functions, and graphs of functions.

###
8 Chapter 3: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

In this chapter, students are introduced to exponential and logarithmic functions. Students will learn about the functions' graphs, how to solve equations involving those functions, and their real-world applications.

###
11 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Proportionality

Students learn to to use proportional relationships to describe dilation; explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.

###
Producing Plump Produce

In collaborative groups, the students investigate the transport of water within potato cells placed in various tonicity solutions.

###
Energy Transfer in an Ecosystem

All matter contains energy. Energy can be transferred from one object to another. Energy transformation can occur through the conversion of energy from one form to another. Energy is never created nor destroyed; it is always transferred and/or transformed. Students will demonstrate how energy is transformed and transferred in an ecosystem. To do this, students will create energy pyramids by stacking cups that represent organisms and available amounts of energy. Students will graph and analyze the data.

###
Plant, Parts, and Function

Students use prior knowledge of body systems as they make connections to systems in plants. Students learn that some plant systems have similar functions as the respective animal systems. The lesson highlights the following systems in plants: root system, shoot system, vascular system, and reproductive system.

###
Equipment for Biology

Given investigation scenarios, students will determine the equipment that best fits the procedure.

###
Disruptions of the Cell Cycle: Cancer

Given illustrations or descriptions, students will identify disruptions of the cell cycle that lead to diseases such as cancer.

###
Mechanisms of Genetics: DNA Changes

Given illustrations or partial DNA sequences, students will identify changes in DNA and the significance of these changes.

###
Protein Synthesis

The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.

###
Taxonomy Standards

Given examples, students will recognize the importance of taxonomy to the scientific community.
