There was a claim at the airport saying that “It’s paranoid and ignorant to worry about industry or agriculture contaminating the environment with their chemical wastes.

AS Description: The purpose of this assignment is to make students integrate the basic concepts about atom structure, electron distribution, bonding and emergent properties learned from this chapter. In addition to strengthen their understanding of the very important principle in Biology that structure determines function, this assignment will also inspire them to link biology to their daily lives. The second question is to allow students to apply the scientific method in a real research problem to inspire their way of scientific and critical thinking.
AS Instructions: Answer the following two critical thinking questions, and upload your answers as a Word document or PDF.
1. There was a claim at the airport saying that “It’s paranoid and ignorant to worry about industry or agriculture contaminating the environment with their chemical wastes. After all, this stuff is just made of the same atoms that were already present in our environment.” Based on your knowledge of atom structure, bonding and the principle that structure determines function, write a short essay countering this argument. Give specific examples to support your opinions. APA style, 200 words.
2. Read the case study of coat coloration in mouse populations in textbook. (P67-P68) and suggest another hypothesis researchers might use to further study the role of predators in the natural selection process. Provide your reasoning.
