Weekly Outline 26

A Complete Record of Daily Activities
This Week’s Learning Target(s)
  • Summarize the process of meiosis.
  • Describe how homologous chromosomes are alike and how they differ.
  • Describe how chromosome assortment during meiosis contributes to genetic variation.
  • Explain how crossing over contributes to genetic variation.
  • Explain why offspring produced by sexual reproduction are genetically diverse.
  • Describe how probability applies to genetics.
  • Understand how genes can have various alleles and how those work together to determine physical traits.
  • Use Punnett squares to model the genetic crosses involving one trait and to predict possible offspring genotypes and phenotypes given any two parental phenotypes.
  • Describe how dominant and recessive alleles interact to determine an organism’s phenotype.
  • Explain how phenotype is affected by various patterns of inheritance.
  • Describe how alleles interact incomplete dominance (intermediate inheritance).
  • Describe how alleles interact in codominance.
  • Explain how multiple alleles expand the number of possible genotypes and phenotypes for a particular trait.
