Mapping Genes to Traits in Dogs Using SNPs

In this activity, students identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are correlated with different traits in dogs to identify genes associated with those traits.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

This interactive simulation allows students to graph and analyze sample distributions taken from a normally distributed population.

Spreadsheet Tutorial 4: t-Test

In this activity, students explore different ways of calculating t-values and performing t-tests using built-in functions in Excel or Google Sheets. Students apply what they learned by plotting beak size measurements of Galapágos finches collected before and after a drought.

Spreadsheet Tutorial 5: Histogram

In this activity, students explore different ways of constructing a histogram using Excel or Google Sheets. Students apply what they learned by plotting beak size measurements of Galapágos finches before and after a drought.

Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean through data collection and analysis.

Teaching Speciation Using Anole Lizards

This playlist can be used to teach several core concepts of natural selection and speciation by connecting students to actual research on Caribbean anoles. It can be used in AP/IB Biology and undergraduate college courses.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores how stickleback fish and fossil specimens are used to study evolutionary processes, with an emphasis on data collection and analysis.
