Are you tired of the 16-box method?
Although traditional, the 16-box solution method for dihybrids is slow and introduces many opportunities for students to make little mistakes. After getting frustrated with watching my 9th graders get questions wrong with this sloppy, complicated method, I sought out a better solution.
Probability is fast, efficient, and simple!
Many teachers are nervous to embrace the probability method in 9th grade or below due to a perceived notion that the students cannot handle the math. However, the students have already learned to multiple fractions well before junior high school, and that's what lies at the core of the probability method: simple fraction multiplication.
This bundle includes a self-guided worksheet that will easily introduce students to the probability method and even refreshes them on how to multiple fractions together!
Check for understanding with horse genetics!
Also included in this worksheet is a perfect homework or in-class practice worksheet. This worksheet contains real horse genetics, including a table of horse genetics with custom-made images. Students can practice their dihybrid solving abilities using these horse genetic problems.
Beautiful answer keys!
Both of the worksheets included in this bundle include typed up, clearly explained answer keys. This includes illustrated Punnett squares on the Solving Dihybrids with Probability self-guided worksheet.
Custom horse genetics table PNG file included!
This bundle includes several image files saved separately from the worksheet in case you wish to use them for other worksheets, homeworks, or review games. This includes the horse genetics table from the horse practice question worksheet.
