Advanced Placement (AP) Biology Review PowerPoint

Topic: Animal Behavior

Keywords: Advanced placement biology, test prep, AP exam, AP biology exam.

This is not a teaching powerpoint. This powerpoint is suitable for Advanced Placement Biology classes that need a quick review over a particular topic. Several months before the AP Biology exam, I begin to run through these short powerpoints to start my students on the road to reviewing for the exam in May. Each powerpoint is a set of questions followed by the answer. As the exam approaches, I spend 10 to 15 minutes each class period running through the questions on these review powerpoints. Keeping previously taught material fresh in the mind of the student is key to scoring well on the AP exam.

I offer one of my AP Biology Review PowerPoints as a free download. It covers the topic of Organic Compounds and Biochemistry. This will give you a good idea of what my review PowerPoints are like. Click this link to download the free PowerPoint on Organic Compounds.

This powerpoint would not be suitable for teaching the material for the first time. This powerpoint is simply a question followed by the answer. It covers what I consider to be the main points and ideas for each topic.

Please note: This product is also sold in a bundled package. Check out this product listing if you are interested in purchasing all 25 of my Review PowerPoints for AP Biology.

This particular PowerPoint contains 39 question and answer slides. It covers the following topics:
1. Definition of behavior. Examples of behavior.
2. Definition of ethnology, proximate causation, ultimate causation.
3. Fixed action behaviors, sign stimulus, releasers, pros and cons of fixed action behaviors.
4. Kinesis, taxis, migration
5. Circadian rhythms
6. Types of communication: visual, chemical, tactile, auditory, the round dance and the waggle dance of bees, pheromones.
7. Innate behavior, learned behavior, examples of each.
8. Imprinting: Importance of imprinting, critical period, organisms that imprint
9. Classical and operant conditioning
10. Foraging, Optimal foraging theory
11. Agonistic behavior, altruism

The powerpoint is based on the 8th editionBiology by Campbell and Reece.

I hope that you will take a look at the free preview. It consists of the first 6 slides of the powerpoint. Thanks for looking!
