$155.75
Product: (in stock)

Description

Students uncover and experience the mechanism of Mendelian genetics with Wisconsin Fast Plants®. In the Guided Investigation, students germinate the F1 and F2 generations of a population to learn about the inheritance of traits. In the Inquiry Investigation, students must design an investigation to determine the genotype of an unknown sample of Wisconsin Fast Plants® seed. Kit includes enough materials for 8 groups.

Unit Connection
Unit 5: Heredity, topic 5.3: Mendelian Genetics

Standards Connection
IST-1 Heritable information provides for the continuity of life.

Time Requirements
The Pre-Lab takes approximately 30 minutes of preparation, the Guided Investigation takes approximately 25 minutes of preparation 3 days before the lab and 30 minutes the day of the lab, and the Inquiry Investigation takes approximately 45 minutes of preparation.

Prerequisite Knowledge and Skills
Students should be familiar with the basics of Mendelian genetics; the use of Punnett squares; the life cycle of diploid organisms as it relates to genetics, including an understanding of meiosis; and independent assortment and the segregation of alleles. It will be helpful if students also have some familiarity with the chi-square goodness of fit test.
