SCIENCE GENETICS – This genetics professional development will focus on keystone-eligible content: Describe and/or predict observed patterns of inheritance (i.e., dominant, recessive, co-dominance, incomplete dominance, sex-linked, polygenic, and multiple alleles). Performance Objectives – students will be able to (SWBAT) use Punnet squares to predict the outcome of a genetic cross. SWBAT identify similarities and differences between simple dominance, codominance, incomplete dominance, sex-linked, polygenic, and multiple alleles in order to compare Mendelian and non-Mendelian patterns of inheritance. Students will explore human genetic traits while observing their own personal traits. These traits will be used in demonstrating monohybrid and dihybrid crosses. After mastery of the Punnet square, students will use the tool to make predictions about sex-linked and polygenic inheritance.
