QFD: the world is its own magic.” ― Shunryu Suzuki
?FD : Have you ever created a website before ? Do u remember the one we created at the beginning of the school year and your password?
Learning Objective: Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment
HS-LS2-8.
Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) website creation
2) pick an endangered species to study and investigate

QFD : Rain in April is abominable,”Like a slap in the face when you expected a kiss.”
?FD : Describe and analyze the methods scientists use to prove the theory of evolution
Learning Objective: HS 2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.*

LS4.B: Natural Selection

Natural selection occurs only if there is both (1) variation in the genetic information between organisms in a population and (2) variation in the expression of that genetic information—that is, trait variation—that leads to differences in performance among individuals.
The traits that positively affect survival are more likely to be reproduced, and thus are more common in the population.
LS4.C: Adaptation

Natural selection leads to adaptation, that is, to a population dominated by organisms that are anatomically, behaviorally, and physiologically well suited to survive and reproduce in a specific environment. That is, the differential survival and reproduction of organisms in a population that have an advantageous heritable trait leads to an increase in the proportion of individuals in future generations that have the trait and to a decrease in the proportion of individuals that do not.
Adaptation also means that the distribution of traits in a population can change when conditions change.

Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) website design

2) endangered species project ( individual – all sites should be different)

1)Step one , create a website, and pick a endangered species of a plant and animal from the list http://www.earthsendangered.com/search-regions3.asp?search=1&sgroup=allgroups&ID=38

2) Explains the who what where when and why these species have become endangered include pictures and graphs to emphasize your findings ( at least 1-2 paragraphs per section)

3) create a graph using excel or spreadsheet that demonstrates the decline in the species you have chosen over the last 20 years

4) create a conservation management plan (1-2 pages) that illustrates how you would help your chosen species grow their population

5) list the consequences that humans have had on your species and what steps ie. laws could help to ensure that the species will survive and be protected

6) (partners) create a 1 min video that serves as a public service announcement to help your species using all of the information you gathered from your website

(due by Friday- except for video)

QFD : April showers bring May flowers.. Unless you live near coachella , then your flowers die due to the rain precipitated by the patrons ..
?FD : Describe how genes play a role in evolution of species, be specific

QFD: Love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark … to have been loved so deeply .. will give us some protection forever.” —J.K. Rowling
Essential question of the Day : name and describe the three types of survivorship and provide examples
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 2-1 Students who demonstrate understanding can: Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
Learning target : Students will be able to name and describe the three types of survivorship by completing an online assignment

1) website day 4 of 5
2) pyramids due
3) work on PSA partners

QFD: My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I base my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.” —Michael Jordan
Essential question of the Day : analyze the differences in density dependent and density independent factors that affect populations
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 2-1 Students who demonstrate understanding can: Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
Learning target : Students will analyze the differences in density dependent and density independent factors that affect populations by taking a quiz
1) PSA finished by end of period

3) place graph onto site
