PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Probability: Genetics project is a set of 5 probability activities using genetics to practice and learn probability. Students begin with a story and move through multiple levels of working with genetics to calculate increasingly more complicated probability.

Plus a BONUS matching set of probability practice and review cards that are dragon-themed to go with this project is included. Great for your 7th grade math class.

There are two possible sequences of activities to use for differentiation. One includes the concept of dominant and recessive genes, which adds more complexity to the determination of probability and is great for gifted students or for those ready for more challenge. Easily one of my 7th and 8th graders favorite projects of the year.
