The integration of analytical skills in the AP Biology course has provided a new challenge for AP Biology teachers. In an attempt to facilitate student mastery of unfamiliar skills I have chosen to front-load analytical skills into beginning of my course. My students will be assessed with a minimum of 5 grid-in problems on each unit exam.
I have experienced extreme difficulties finding chi-squared problems that are not all content specific, but still appropriate for the course. In order to implement the course long strategy I needed a bank of problems that students could complete at any time in the course. I’ve decided to pass these problems I’ve developed on to the AP Biology teachers who are experiencing the same struggle!
