Evolutionary biology is the foundational study upon which much of modern biology is built. Before Darwin's theory of natural selection, biology lacked a unifying context for its many observations. Modern evolutionary biology, in fact, provides the primary framework for understanding much of your other biology courses.

Theodosius Dobzhansky, a Russian scientist, once said that nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution. Given the gravity of the class, it is especially important for you to not only succeed in learning the principles of the course, but to retain them in the long term. While essential, evolutionary biology is also challenging because it requires students to apply concepts from many other biological fields and over long periods of time. Humans and chimpanzees, for example, have a structural change in chromosomes two and three that happened over the past 25 million years. Understanding this change requires that students have a firm understanding of genetics, which is then used to determine population-level phenomena using advanced mathematics. Clearly, evolutionary biology requires a mental agility that can challenge even the most talented students.

We worked on the student's Ecology review packet. We discussed the different bio-geochemical cycles, the biotic factors, and the abiotic factors for each cycle. Then we discussed the energy pyramids and how energy moves through the ecosystems. Because this is something that she has already seen in junior high, she feels very comfortable with the material.

The student had genetics homework on standard dominant/recessive traits. We worked through that, with me reviewing problems or topics as they came up. I worked on demonstrating when and how information can be gained by a phenotype and how to fill in the blanks with additional information from the problem. I covered this a couple different times with him and I think he has a better understanding of it now. We also did a worksheet on inheritance, which he was very quick to pick up on and seems to understand well.

Today the student had to complete a microbiology module. His assignment was to conduct a virtual experiment and observe the zone of inhibition of household cleaning agents and antibiotics using a petri dish and optic discs. The strains he used were staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus pneumoniae, and H. influenzae. He then had to compare the zones of inhibition to see which were more effective on which strains of bacteria, and measure the length of the zones. Overall, he gained a very good understanding of antimicrobial agents and their effects on bacteria. He also learned by watching a video the different classifications of bacteria (gram positive/negative, morphology, etc.)

We covered the structure and function of the ribosome. Specifically, the number and size of RNA and protein subunits found in bacteria and euks. We discussed two experiments which elucidated the size of these subunits and hinted at their function. Strong emphasis on data analysis and hypothesis creation.

It looks like our study tactics are paying dividends for the student. He got a an 87% on his cladogram test! We reviewed the classification slide show we went over 2 weeks ago. He seemed to retain most of the information. I also quizzed him on the questions he made for himself. We reviewed the parts of the cell, and also the macromolecules we went over last week. I recommend he spend more time reviewing his notes for the final, which is coming up in a month and a half. Good job!

In this session, we covered Punnett squares for codominance, incomplete dominance, and sex-linked traits. We started off by doing a brief overview on the difference between codominance and incomplete dominance and how to distinguish the two (i.e. incomplete dominance leads to a blended phenotype and codominance leads to demonstration of multiple phenotypes). We worked on a worksheet that the student was given in class, and then we spend a great deal of time going through practice problems, in which she had to make Punnett squares and then analyze genotypic and phenotypic ratios. I was very happy with her performance.
