PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint attempts to undo the damage done by the X-Men movie series where students are led to believe that DNA mutations can give super powers. Ugh... Hollywood!

This PowerPoint teaches the different types of gene and chromosome mutations such as: Point mutations, Silent mutations, Frame-shift mutations, and Translocation mutations. This PowerPoint is NOT just a list of bullet point/main ideas. This presentation is equipped with engaging images and animations to better assist with understanding. There are also many practice problems allow the way for you to use to check for student understanding. Your students should have a good understanding of transcription and translation prior to learning this lesson.

Better yet, you can preview the entire PowerPoint on my YouTube channel prior to purchase to make sure it suits your needs. If purchased however, the PowerPoint will NOT be narrated. You still have to teach yourself. LOL. Here is the YouTube address:
