Upcoming Sessions

session

Excretory System Review!

Iman K

Wed Feb 28, 11:00 PM

As this is a session requested by Michelle and A A, I plan on going over whatever notes they bring, my own notes from last year, and the chapters from my Anatomy & Physiology textbook that cover the excretory circulatory systems. Anyone is welcome to join!

Genetics

Exploring Climate Change: Discussions on Environmental Issues

Other Topics

Ruoyu C

Thu Feb 29, 9:00 PM

We will explore why it is hard for us to solve climate change and the fear that surrounds it. How should we talk about climate change to get a response?

Tala S

Fri Mar 1, 7:00 PM

During this session, we will cover the second part of Unit 7 Natural Selection, which will include the following topics: 7.8 Continuing Evolution, 7.9 Phylogeny, 7.10 Speciation, 7.11 Extinction, 7.12 Variations in Population, and 7.13 Origin of Life on Earth. The session will include both an explanation/review of the aforementioned topics and practice questions on them.

Comprehensive AP Biology Course

AP Biology

Ragad S

Fri Mar 1, 7:00 PM

Unit 7 (part I) We will cover sections 7.1 to 7.7. Like unit 6, unit 7's sessions are 90 minutes long because unit 7 is quite long. We will discuss Darwin's theory of natural selection and compare it to artificial selection. Then, we will discuss population genetics, with an emphasis on the founder and bottleneck effects. We will discuss Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what conditions are required for it, and how to solve mathematical AP questions about it. We will discuss the evidence supporting evolution and common ancestry. As always, I will take questions anytime during the session, and we will solve some related AP-style questions at the end of the session.

Guidelines

When teaching biology, we know it can be tempting to simply give learners the answers to their questions. After all, the subject matter tends to be pretty complex, and learners might struggle to understand the concepts without some direction. However, we want to stress the importance of guiding the learner towards the solution instead of simply giving them the answer. I think the best way to do this is to ask some open-ended questions! Here are a few you can ask:

1. Could you please tell me what you know about this topic?
2. What do you think the answer might be? Why do you think that?
3. Would you please be able to explain this concept to me?
4. Can you think of any alternate explanations?
5. How might this concept relate to other concepts you have learned?

If the learner is online, we encourage you to to open a Live Help Zoom session! This will allow you to interact with the learner in real-time, answer their questions, and guide them towards the solution!

We know that guiding learners toward the solutions requires a lot of patience and an adaptive approach to teaching! We appreciate everyone’s hard work in the Biology subworld! Thank you so much for your help!
