Offering a fresh approach to the traditional karyotyping activity, Disorder Detectives is sure to engage your students and pique their interest in the impact of chromosome disorders on human disease. Taking on the role of cytogeneticists, students diagnose the diseases of 15 different patients using fully reusable materials, while incorporating real clinical symptoms. Students deal with a variety of abnormalities resulting from nondisjunction, deletion, inversion, and translocation.

  • Understand the anatomy of human chromosomes
  • Diagnose patient disorders using karyotype analysis
  • Address student misconceptions regarding chromosomes
  • Reuse kit's unique karyotyping boards and stickers
Students jump into the role of cytogeneticists working in a hospital or clinic as they explore the diagnostic power of karyotyping in this unique activity. This kit provides students with a hands-on experience studying human chromosomes and connecting various karyotypes with chromosomal disorders. Students work on 1 of 15 case studies to complete patient karyotypes and help make appropriate disease diagnoses. They gain exposure to a wide range of chromosome anomalies and normal karyotype spreads during the investigation. Students deal with a variety of chromosome abnormalities resulting from nondisjunction, deletion, inversion, and translocation. All of the kit materials are reusable and offer your students an exceptional experience that can change the way you approach karyotyping in your classroom. Designed for 30 students working in pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emphasis on Analysis and Stickers! My AP class loved this activity. It was a huge time saver that they only had to place the homologous chromosome and extras. The students complimented that the case study style analysis was interesting and the time investment was where it should be which is on the analysis of the karyotype. Once completed, the students did a gallery walk of the others and diagnosed several of the other boards. Some of the boards have warped a bit which is why I only placed a rating of good on the quality. I put a heavy book on them to try to fix this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Crossover for PLTW courses! I use this for both my Biology courses and my PLTW Medical Interventions course during our genetic disorders unit. This gives my students the understanding of how an actual cytogeneticist goes about discovering disorders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to teach Chromosomal Disorders yet. This kit is a tool that once purchased will be used in the classroom for years to come. It is well made and any parts that can possibly wear out can be replaced by the manufacturer. The teaching instructions that accompany the kit can be used as a guide to a seasoned teacher to supplement current teaching resources or by the beginning teacher to supply all the background information and guidance needed to take students in the depths of chromosome discovery and disorder detection. You will not be disappointed in this Classroom Kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting & easy to use! This activity is great for teaching about genetic disorders. Everything has been done for you too! All you have to do is pass the boards out to the students and they are ready to go. It also has a great extension for students to go beyond the activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful activty; my students love it and no more cutting out chromosomes!!! I love this product! I use it with both my general biology and my advanced AP/IB Biology students. With my advanced students I follow up the activity by letting the students research the case study based on their karyotype results. They can usually diagnose the patient by searching the internet for the type of chromosomal anomaly and which chromosome or chromosomes are involved. My students love this activity and I know longer worry about losing those chromosomes that you had to cut out from photocopied lab pages.
