Class Experience

1. To be able to justify the historical investigations that support the claim that DNA is the source of heritable information.
2. Describe representations and models that illustrate how genetic information is copied and transferred between generations. 
3. To provide scientific explanations that use the structures and mechanisms of DNA to support the claim that DNA is the primary sources of heritable information.
Multiple-choice questions will be given and are meant to confirm the proper comprehension of the material.
I will provide the necessary reading materials. The student can email me their questions and answers to the class activity/quiz. My email address is

3) Did they participate in the discussion. 
I will write a report to the parent for how the student did in the class and their assignments. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class presumes no previous knowledge of genetics.
