First Quarter Extra Credit Project
This project is worth a grade of A or 100 points. You may choose to add these points to your Homework Grade or Test Grade,
or Lab Grade only.
To be eligible for full credit, the assignment must be completed exactly as the directions state. Due dates will be strictly
adhered to. This means NO LATE PROJECTS WILL BE ACCEPTED!
The Assignment: Consider what you have learned about the frog experiment we have talked about in class. Using this
information and the scientific method we have discussed; carry out an investigation to answer this question: At the forefront
of the deformed-frog situation is this concern: Is human health at risk? Do the malformed frogs signal a widespread environmental
problem? What steps can scientists take to find out whether humans are also at risk? You are not actually going to do an
experiment; instead you are to do research and plug-in the information into your investigation like we did with the frog experiment.
I will discuss this further in class.
