Monohybrid Fruit Fly Crosses: A Simulation part of Teaching with Data:Examples
This assignment uses a computer simulation of fruit fly genetics to have students design and interpret monohybrid crosses of a trait with simple dominant and recessive alleles. Detailed instructions with animated examples, background material, a sample report and a rubric are included.
What Determines Gender in Humans? part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
In this activity students examine karyotypes from five individuals to try to identify which chromosomes determine gender in humans. This activity is also a good illustration of meiotic non-disjunction. -
Human Demographics part of Mathematics and Statistics Models:Examples
In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.
Genetic Drift part of Mathematics and Statistics Models:Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.
