Addresses HS-LS3-2; a good complement to the CER project also available in our store. This short quiz covers mutations, meiosis, and their connections to genetic variation.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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. Emphasis is on using data to support arguments for the way variation occurs. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
