Ch 26: AP Biology: Analyzing Scientific Data

About This Chapter

Watch the following video lessons about scientific experiments and learn how to analyze scientific data. These lessons are just a portion of our AP Biology course.

Analyzing Scientific Data - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

There are a variety of ways to analyze scientific data. The lessons in this chapter show you how to interpret several forms of data expression. You'll first learn how to analyze scientific data tables, and you'll then explore how to properly read graphs and charts. Each of these lessons comes with practice problems to test your learning. The second half of the chapter covers experimental design using Avery and Griffith's experiment as an example. By the time you reach the end of this chapter, you should be able to:

  • Interpret tables of scientific data
  • Read graphs and charts containing pertinent data
  • Design a scientific experiment
  • Understand the implications of Avery and Griffith's experiment
