Incorporating Math and Statistics in AP/IB Science is our newest curriculum written to provide a method for teaching Next Generation Science Standards and the statistical analysis required for AP and IB courses. In 14 experiential learning lesson plans for high school or college level courses, students can master the process of integrating math into experimental research and the use of hypothesis testing for drawing statistics-based conclusions.
Case studies are complex stories, filled in with color and detail, that make science come to life in a way that is real and applied, rather than theoretical. Each CLC case study included lesson plans for 20-24 activities that require ~40 days of teaching. Lessons do not need to all be included in your curriculum nor do they need to be presented in sequence. They can be used to cover the content from ~10-15 chapters, enhance your course as a weekly supplement or as a set of applied science projects for the semester.
Each Case Study covers specific content required by the AP College Board and the International Baccalaureate program as well as meeting objectives for advanced biology courses such as Anatomy and Physiology (please see the chart below for specific content areas covered by each case study). With these case studies, you are able to cover the required content one time, in a way that makes a lasting impression. Each case study topic acts as a vehicle to take your students to a depth of applied understanding that cannot be achieved through the rote memorization of processes. All case study explorations use only student-centered, hands-on learning techniques, including simulations, debates, games, model building, projects, student-designed laboratory experiments, data analysis and other full-engagement activities.
