Product Description

The AP biology exam has been updated for the 2019-2020 school year. You can find the updated course description guide here. Make sure that you and your students are prepared for these changes. Save countless hours of research aligning your content to the new AP biology course outline by purchasing this resource. This resource includes activities to go along with the PowerPoint for Unit 5 which you can find here.

What's included in this resource?

5 worksheets

Each worksheet includes questions that provoke critical thinking. Students are asked to analyze figures and data to draw conclusions. The questions are structured like AP questions to help students feel prepared for the exam.

  • Mendelian genetics review and practice problems
  • Non-Mendelian genetics review and practice problems
  • Using probability in genetics
  • Analyzing pedigrees
  • Chi Square analysis problems

1 Chi Square Lab

  • The lab focuses on using Chi Square to analyze the frequency of colors in an M&M bag

**In this unit I do not have any worksheets or activities for meiosis, I find students (since they spent time on mitosis already) tend to grasp the process. Therefore, I personally prefer to spend time focusing on the math that they need to know in this unit. I find it has never been an issue and my students are much stronger in the math because we spend more time on that together.

How does it work?

These documents go along with the PowerPoint for Unit 5

How much class time will this unit take?

The unit will take approximately nine to eleven 50 minute class periods or six to seven 90 min block classes. The pace of the unit will depend on the class, the number of activities, and the labs performed.

How can I implement this product into my class?

Each of these resources is designed to be flexible. The worksheets are great as in class practice or as homework assignments. In my AP classes, I will normally have students work with a partner to answer the questions and then we review them as a class.

Why should you purchase this resource from me?

This is a valid question! When I first started teaching AP biology, it was tough to say the least. The resources available to me were limited or not beneficial to my students. PowerPoints, especially, were the hardest resource to come by. So, I created this curriculum myself. I aligned it to the AP biology course and made it so that my students would actually benefit from the content. The year I started using this curriculum, the pass rate at my school went from an average of 55% to an average of 90%. I received so much positive feedback from my students as well! The best compliment I ever received was when two of my previous students came back to visit me during their freshmen year at college. They came to tell me that my curriculum was the reason they were excelling in their college biology class (and that they were still using my PowerPoints to study)!

Please Note

This is a new store, I will be adding content as the year goes along. I am working my hardest to get all units out ASAP. If you have any questions please contact me via email.
