This powerpoint was written with a typical biology I class in mind. It can easily be edited. Middle school teachers may simply want to delete a few of the slides. Honors teachers can easily include a few extra details.
Also included is a set of notes to accompany this powerpoint. It includes a complete set of notes (17 pages) for the teacher, and an outline of the notes (18 pages) for the students. Students will use the outline as the powerpoint is being presented and will fill in the notes as the lesson is being taught.
The powerpoint includes many sample problems. There are several sample problems for each type of cross. However, students will need more practice problems to master these concepts. I provide my students with a worksheet for each type of problem covered in the powerpoint as a supplement and extra practice. These extra worksheets are available on TpT, but are not included in this product.
This powerpoint does not include: meiosis, genetic disorders, DNA concepts.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.
