Discover the Possibilities! A Genetics Probability Activity
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

An entire genetics unit in a single kit! Students work at their own pace through this guided-inquiry activity to discover the principles of Mendelian genetics. Introductory exercises help students become familiar with the basic vocabulary of genetics. The manipulative exercises allow students to visualize Mendel's laws of dominance and independent assortment. Students learn how probability plays a role in genetics as they simulate the process of gamete formation in a dihybrid cross using triangular-shaped dice. Additional genetics concepts, such as incomplete dominance and co-dominance, are also clarified using easy-to-follow examples.

There are enough materials for 30 students working individually or in pairs.
