Assignment

Wed 12/13 (emailed by 11:59pm)

This is an INDIVIDUAL assignment. Visit Aquaponics Blogs of at least 2 other Groups in the class. Post specific feedback on their research design. Copy, pate and email me the 2 links where I can read your posts on their blog. For each post identify:

  • 2 things they did really well
  • 2 specific suggestions for improvement
  • 2 question that arose in your mind (or that their research should address that it does not already address) as you read their investigation proposal

Fri 12/8 (emailed by 11:59pm)

Aquaponics Post #2. Email me a public link to your Aquaponics Energy Systems Diagram. One group (of up to 4 students) member should email me the link and CC the other group members.

Design and construct a systems diagram to model energy capture and flow through your aquaponics ecosystem. Use annotations to help explain your reasoning. Think about how your system will measure the input and output of energy in producers and consumers. For Example:

  • What do you predict about the quantity of energy the producers take in compared to the quantity of energy that goes out?
  • What do you predict about the quantity of energy the consumers take in compared to the quantity of energy that goes out?
  • What do you think are various ways that producers and consumers could lose energy?
  • How could you estimate the amount of energy lost through these various pathways? (You can hand draw this, or use Word, or Paint, take a picture and then upload an electronic copy)

For support/ideas you may check the following documents: EnergyDynamicsLab.doc, Lab 10: Energy Dynamics, Appendix D: Matrix for Assessing and Planning Scientific Inquiry (MAPSI),

Aquaponics Annotated Bibliography

Your annotated bibliography should address the following AP Biology College board Standards

Big Idea 2: Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.

• LO 2.1 The student is able to explain how biological systems use free energy based on empirical data that all organisms require constant energy input to maintain organization, to grow, and to reproduce.

• LO 2.2 The student is able to justify a scientific claim that free energy is required for living systems to maintain organization, to grow, or to reproduce, but that multiple strategies exist in different living systems.

• LO 2.3 The student is able to predict how changes in free energy availability affect organisms, populations, and ecosystems.

• LO 2.22 The student is able to refine scientific models and questions about the effect of complex biotic and abiotic interactions on all biological systems, from cells and organisms to populations, communities, and ecosystems.

• LO 2.23 The student is able to design a plan for collecting data to show that all biological systems (cells, organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems) are affected by complex biotic and abiotic interactions.

• LO 2.24 The student is able to analyze data to identify possible patterns and relationships between a biotic or abiotic factor and a biological system (cells, organisms, populations, communities, or ecosystems).

• LO 4.14 The student is able to apply mathematical routines to quantities that describe interactions among living systems and their environment, which result in the movement of matter and energy.

• LO 4.16 The student is able to predict the effects of a change of matter or energy availability on communities
