44. Know the difference between biotic and abiotic factors. 45. Given a situation, be able to describe it as sign stimulus, habituation, imprinting, classical conditioning, or operant conditioning.

Part II: Free Response Questions (2)

Both of the free response questions will be lab-based. The first will relate to the AP Lab # 4: Photosynthesis, and the second will relate to AP Lab # 7: Genetics of Drosophila. I would suggest that you thoroughly review the concepts in both of these labs. For the essay on Lab # 4, you should be prepared to discuss the variables, constants, and controls involved, as well as graph the data. For the essay on Lab #7, you should be able to use Punnett squares and provided formulas to analyze and interpret your data.
