Topic 2.1 IB ESS Populations

(0)
A series of resources to support Topic 2.1 Species and Populations from the IB Environmental Systems and Societies course. 76 slide fully referenced presentation in Keynote, Powerpoint and pdf formats, as well as handout summary in pdf format. Comprehensive notes with detailed questions to draw upon the main understanding about populations and their interactions in pdf and epub formats suitable for online learning. Knowledge and understanding is developed through MCQ and short answer questions leading to building depth with longer more detailed questions requiring students to analysis population data and draw conclusions based on evaluation of the data. The pack also includes instructions to sample the distribution of earthworms in different habitats, that can be adapted to different environments and context as both word and pdf formats. Links to all cited work and additional reading also included.

Statistics for IB Environmental Systems

(0)
Two complete lessons that use Topic 2.1 from the IB ESS (Environmental Systems and Societies) course to introduce students to descriptive statistics, Students t-test and Chi squared. Each lesson is self contained but could be used anywhere in the course to introduce typical statistical methodologies that are applicable to both the Internal Assessment and Extended Essay. Each lesson is available in either pdf or epub formats. Each lesson focuses on theoretical data from about the Forest Elephant populations of the Zakouma National Park in Chad. In the first lesson Students get to use descriptive statistics to calculate mean, standard deviation and standard error of the mean and use these to investigate variation in mass between male and female elephants. In the second lesson students use t-values to investigate the confidence of two population means and chi squared to investigate the presence of tusks in male and females and food choice in the whole population. Each lesson contains step by step walk through methodologies and examples of how to use technology to calculate these values. While designed to accompany the IB ESS course the lessons could be used in any post 16 curriculum that has an ecology or biogeography element.

Topic 2.2 and 2.3 IB DP ESS Communities and Ecosystems

(0)
A series of resources to support Topic 2.2 Communities and Ecosystems and Topic 2.3 Flows of Energy and Matter from the IB Diploma Programme Environmental Systems and Societies course. Five presentations, 110 slides. Fully referenced in Keynote and Powerpoint formats. Comprehensive slides covering Topic 2.2 in 3 parts: Photosynthesis and respiration in Communities, Food webs food chains and ecological pyramids and finally bioaccumulation and biomagnification. Topic 2.3 is detailed as two separate presentations one concentrating on flows of energy and the other on matter. Links to all cited work and additional reading also included.

IB Biology Statistics for Bioscience

Two complete lessons that use in the IB Diploma Biology course to introduce students to descriptive statistics, Students t-test and Chi squared. Each lesson is self contained but could be used anywhere in the course to introduce typical statistical methodologies that are applicable to both the Internal Assessment and Extended Essay. Each lesson is available in either pdf or epub as well as editable word formats. Each lesson focuses on theoretical data from about the Forest Elephant populations of the Zakouma National Park in Chad. In the first lesson Students get to use descriptive statistics to calculate mean, standard deviation and standard error of the mean and use these to investigate variation in mass between male and female elephants.

Topic 4.4 IB ESS Water Pollution Biotic Indices

(0)
Focusing on Topic 4.4 Water Pollution from the IB Environmental Systems and Societies course, two resources that lead students through an understanding the use of biotic indices, to monitor pollution. The first resource is a case study based on the Red River in Hanoi, Vietnam and the problems associated with aquatic pollution because of rapidly industrialization and population growth. A series of questions that use the IB Command terms guide students to a deeper understanding of both the underlying knowledge and the deeper synthesis. The second resource is a simulation based on a theoretical river in the UK. Students are given a detailed map of the River Beck and tables of macroinvertebrates sampled at 5 different stations. They ae then guided through Calculations of BMWP and ASPT and asked to draw conclusions supported by evidence about biological state of the river. The can then self assess against an adapted IA matrix for data analysis. A teachers excel summary sheet of the calculations is also included. Both resources are available as pdf, word and epub . A link is also included to google drive versions of each resource for schools currently operating online.
