Here is the Syllabus for Unit 9, which introduces the powerful ideas of evolutionary biology.

This Unit began prior to Spring Break, which is reflected in the Syllabus.   However, students should note that the 50-point assignment "Lord of the Ants" is not reflected on this handout, as it was assigned prior to Spring Break.   Students who missed this can still watch the video online and use it to define terms and answer questions based on the video.

The image on the syllabus here is a bit larger than the blog could show.   A reader can click on the image to make it easier to read, or download it if they need to print it out.

An exciting new PBS program that bears significantly on the above topic, "Your Inner Fish", represents some of the best evidence from comparative anatomy and the fossil record pointing to common descent.   Both students and parents may enjoy watching these videos online while they available:
