Product Description
Upon completing Volume 4 - Life Science: HEREDITY AND GENETICS of the Doctor Science Series (Grades 3 - 8) students will have learned (1) to distinguish between the asexual and sexual reproductive strategies of living organisms and use appropriate vocabulary to explain how unicellular and multicellular organisms produce offspring, (2) to compare and contrast the cell division processes of mitosis and meiosis and diagram those biological processes to illustrate and explain how the production of sex cells differs from the usual duplication of cells, (3) to compare and contrast the sexual reproduction strategies of plants versus animals, to diagram the pollination process to illustrate and explain how plants reproduce sexually as well as dissect and identify the parts of a flowering plant, (4) to explain why they look the way they do and to discuss the concept of genes and alleles and how they determine the phenotype of an organism in addition to using a Punnett Square to show how the genotypes of parents determine the phenotypes of offspring, (5) to explain how multiple genes are passed from one generation to the next as independent units of heredity and use a Punnett Square to show how different alleles for the same trait determine the individual phenotype of related organisms, (6) to describe the basic structural components of a DNA macromolecule and construct a paper model of a small section of a DNA molecule and explain how it duplicates itself.
