week of 1/20 - 1/23

   This week we start off investigating probability. Probability is good to know because no one knows for sure what traits you will receive from your parents. It's really a flip of the coin to see what the child gets from his/her parents. We have a couple labs demonstrating probability along with plenty of exercise with worksheets.
    With genetics and meiosis, there are quite a few words probably never seen or heard before and there will be an emphasis on the vocabulary this week, ending with a Vocabulary Quiz on Friday, the 23rd.
    We will touch base on Punnett squares towards the end of the week. Punnett squares are a great graphic to help determine the probability of obtaining certain genes from the parents.
This week: (approx.) :
Tuesday 1/20: Penny Lab with Vocabulary intro
Wednesday 1/21: Dice Lab and Probability worksheets
Thursday 1/22: Vocabulary practice in class and introduce Punnett squares
Friday 1/23: Vocabulary Quiz, Punnett squares practice

Great vocabulary practice here at Quizlet, above the terms there are different methods to study (flash cards, learn, speller) flash cards work the best.
