In this activity, you will use ChromoSocks to model the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis. You will also simulate reduction division and relate this to maintenance of chromosome number during sexual reproduction; and model a meiotic event with a nondisjunction that results in gametes with changes in chromosome number, relating these changes to monosomy and trisomy.

The activity supports 3-Dimensional learning and builds toward the following:

  • NGSS Scientific and Engineering Practice: Developing and Using Models
  • NGSS Core Idea: Life Science 3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits
