Tues 12/18 emailed by 11:59pm

=         Last day to submit Gene Regulation Test Corrections (mandatory for ALL students) AP Biology Standards

 

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, paste and email me the 2 hotlinks 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

=         Last day to submit Gene Regulation Test Remediation (mandatory if you scored below 80% on Biochemistry test) 

 

Fri 12/14 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),
