Ch 36: Analyzing Scientific Data in Biology: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Analyzing Scientific Data chapter of this High School Biology Help and Review course is the simplest way to master scientific information. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn about analyzing scientific data.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering high school biology material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn biology. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding visual representations of scientific data
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about analyzing scientific data
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the scientific data chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the scientific data chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any scientific data question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a scientific data unit of a standard high school biology course. Topics covered include:

  • Scientific charts
  • Graphs of scientific data
  • Scientific tables
  • Scientific experiment design

7 Lessons in Chapter 36: Analyzing Scientific Data in Biology: Help and Review
Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

1. Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

Complex table problems getting you down? Multi-question, situational problems don't have to be a drag on your testing performance. Learn how to apply three simple rules as we walk through two table problems together.

Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

2. Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

Do charts and graphs make problem-solving difficult? Complex problems with visual representations can drain your brain during a test. In this lesson, learn three simple rules for solving problems with charts and graphs. We'll try them out as we walk through two sample problems.

Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment

3. Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment

What are the requirements of a scientific experiment? How do scientists design their investigations? In this lesson, we'll use the work of Avery and Griffith to explore the process of experimental design.

What is Randomized Block Design?

4. What is Randomized Block Design?

Have you ever heard of a randomized block design? If not, you are in the right place! This lesson will explain what a randomized block design is and when one should use it. At the end of the lesson you can check your understanding with a short quiz.

Creating Data Tables in Biology: Types & Examples

5. Creating Data Tables in Biology: Types & Examples

This lesson will introduce you to a few basic types of data tables used in biology. It contains several examples and provides the foundational knowledge for building both simple and complex data tables.

Gradualism: Definition, Theory & Examples

6. Gradualism: Definition, Theory & Examples

This lesson contains an investigation into evolution via gradualism. Go over examples of the process in action, reasons for its occurrence, geologic references, key terms, and a brief quiz at the end.

Chemical Reaction Definition in Biology

7. Chemical Reaction Definition in Biology

In this lesson, we'll go over what a chemical reaction is and discuss some key examples in biology. By the time we're through, you will know why chemical reactions are important for living things.
