Class Experience

By the end of this course, your student will understand the basics of genetic material and inheritance. They will learn about the structure and function of DNA, that genes are located on chromosomes, how genetic material is passed from parent to offspring (cells only, no other details), and how to calculate the probability of traits being passed from parent to offspring. 
In this course, your student will have 1-2 review activities each week, one project, and three short 10 question quiz to check their understanding. All work can be completed digitally or printed for convenience. 

Project #1 DNA Model (Week 1)
All work can be completed digitally. If your student prefers doing the projects on paper, the following materials are suggested: paper, colored pencils, and small household items for the DNA model.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Short quizzes and questions to check the student's understanding along the way. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Meiosis is the formation of gametes, the cells used in reproduction. We only address the cell division and the random assortment of DNA that leads to genetically diverse offspring.
