**This course is a Flexible Schedule Course, not live.** In this course, which is geared toward an introduction to DNA and genetics, your student will learn: Week 1 - DNA - Recorded Lesson: What is DNA? - Video on DNA - Digital Worksheet on DNA and Chromosomes - Project #1: DNA Model - Directions and Rubric Week 2 - **Gamete Production** (Meiosis) - Recorded Lesson: Meiosis - Video on Meiosis and Inheritance - Practice Ordering the Steps of Meiosis - Review Week 3 - Mendelian...
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.
Your student will have 1-2 review activities each week, one project, and review games to check their understanding of this course. 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.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Meiosis is the formation of gametes, the cells used in reproduction. We are only addressing the cell division and the random assortment of DNA that leads to genetically diverse offspring.
