Sex-Linked & Multiple Allele Traits

Sorry I can’t be there today. But you are in good hands with Dr. Brooks. If you have questions on setting up the Punnett squares, she can definitely help. Be sure to pick up the handouts (which are also available on the Semester 2 page under Unit 8). Good Luck!

Biology:

  1. (Finish! and…) Check your work then turn in the Oompah Loompa Worksheet
  2. Watch this youTube video and take notes using the handouts in the front of the room
  3. Work on the practice problems for Multiple Alleles & Sex Linked traits. This is not homework. However, the expectation is that you work on this with the time provided. It is due on the 12th (the day of the test) but you will have other projects you will be working on between now and then. If you choose to wait to do this assignment it will only put you behind.

I apologize because today was supposed to be your review game for your Unit 6 test, which for you is your next class. You have a copy of the Study guide so feel free to use this time to work on that and study together.

Have a happy Monday!

New-Clear!

Today we’ll be investigating the nucleus of the atom. I’m sure you know about the traditional powers… The proton, the neutron, & the electron. But, believe it or not, there’s more to the nucleus than meets the eye… Which is a weird statement since you can’t even see the nucleus, but I digress.

Lab Safety… it’s no Accident

Yesterday we went over some important information about your safety in a Lab setting. After review the Lab Safety rules (check the documents page for your specific class for a PDF version), take a look at the image below.
