Students will be able to...

Identify the difference in patterns of inheritance (Dominance/Incomplete Dominance/Co-Dominance)

Use a punnett square to determine the probability of traits in offspring in both  Mendelian and Non-Mendelian genetics

Create ratios to express the probability of traits.

1 Reviewing how a Punnett Square works

  1. Post Zaption into Google Classroom  and have students answer questions as they review the basic concepts of how a punnett square works.

2 Kinestetic Learning! Independent Practice

  1. Teacher Posts Punnett square problems around the classroom and each student has an IPad  (or if 2:1, students partner up )
  2. Students will  travel to each problem and solve problem while recording voice and drawing solution on IPad, 
  3. Students save their work.
