This in science class we will be studying Biology. We will focus the first semester on cellular biology including cell structure and function, photosynthesis, cellular respiration and mitosis. During the second semester we will be studying ecology and the environment
May 25-June 5
Tribble project due Wednesday June 3
Directions for Tribbles( I know I did not give you a rubrics )
Complete a 2 factor cross for a tribble family using the alleles from the tribble worksheet
Include the genotypes for each parent and offspring
I should be able to see each tribble’s phenotype.
Include the genotypic ratio and phenotypic ratio
You will also receive points for being neat, colorful and creative
Study for quiz on Friday covering meiosis and co dominance and incomplete dominance
Monday June 1/Tuesday June 2-These assignments are due on Wednesday June 3-there will be time in class to on Monday and Tuesday to complete
1. mitosis and meiosis webquest
2. complete the rest of the chapter 11 packet
The students will complete Ch 11 review 1-10 11-21 odd
22,23,24,25 26,28. and Students will finish chapter review
Thursday June 4 Performance assessment
Monday June 8-Ch 11 test
Chapter 11 study guide
Know all vocab words
How many recessive alleles for a trait must an organism inherit in order to show the trait?
Use the punnett square ( 2 factor cross) to answer the following questions
What is the phenotypic ratio of the off springs?
Contrast the cells produced by mitosis with those produced by meiosis .
What is a linkage group?
What does a gene map show?
Using science skills
Use the punnett square
Identify the genotype and phenotype of a specific offspring
List all the different phenotypes
What are the genotypes of the offsprings that will have black rough hair?
What fraction of the offspring is expected to have white smooth hair?
Explain why short plants reappeared in Mendel’s F2 generation for pea plants?
You wish to determine whether a tall pea plant is homozygous or heterozygous for tallness. What cross should you perform to arrive at your answer? Explain
Explain the difference between incomplete dominance and codominance
The stages of meiosis are classified into 2 divisions meiosis I and meiosis II Compare and contrast the 2 divisions
Define linkage and explain how linkage is used to make gene maps
