This NGSS-aligned, interactive lecture provides an outline for: basic genetics, meiosis, karyotypes, genetic disorders, probability, Punnett squares, pedigrees, and forms of inheritance. It is intended for introducing topics and student note-taking between more in-depth activities. Included is a student handout for taking notes.
I have uploaded this in a .pptx format so you can edit and differentiate for your classroom and students' needs. Make sure to preview it in "present" mode to view all the animations. Enjoy!
HS-LS3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
HS-LS3-3 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population.
