May 8th and 9th: Special Cases in Genetics Quiz and Dihybrid Crosses

We reviewed multiple alleles, co/incomplete dominance and sex-linked traits before taking a quiz on it. Then, we dove into dihybrid crosses. We took notes and practiced our skills on a SpongeBob worksheet that was turned in as an exit ticket. If you are having trouble foiling, here are the visuals we referred to in class.foilPpGgFOIL

A Day Classes for 4/19

Block 1A — College Prep

We did a webquest called “Recovering the Romanovs.” Click here for a link to the site.

For a Recovering the Romanovs packet click here: ss_romanov.

For a copy of the CSET and rubric, click here: romanovcset

Block 2A — Honors

First, we reviewed the structure of DNA. Next we looked at how it is copied.

We completed POGIL Model 2 on DNA replication as a group. Next, we used the DNA Puzzles to model the replication of DNA. See me for copy of either exercise.

Block 4A — College Prep

Studied Sex-Linked Traits. For a review of the powerpoint, click here:  Sex-linked_Traits

We then practiced predicting sex-linked traits. For a copy of that, click here: Sex-linked_Traits_Problems

We then looked at tracing sex-linked traits using a pedigree. Click Here: Pedigree worksheets (Do page numbers 3 and 4)

A Day Classes 4/5/16

Block 1A

We reviewed the basic principles of genetics. If you are struggling or need a review, click here. We will have a another quiz on Thursday 4/7.

Next we learned how to interpret a autosomal pedigree. If you missed it or need a review the link to video on reading pedigrees: Click video

Block 4A

We reviewed the basic principles of genetics. If you are struggling or need a review, click here. We will have a another quiz on Thursday 4/7.

Next, did a lab to determine the accuracy  of Punnett squares. The link for that is here.

It can be completed with a couple of coins.

B Day Classes 4/4/16

Welcome back from Spring Break! Today, we learned how to read pedigree charts to track traits through generations, then we learned how use Punnett squares to predict Sex-linked traits.

Use this worksheet (it is different from what I assigned in class but covers the same material: Sex-linked_Traits_Problems
