Abstract

Students will integrate probability through Math and genetics using Punnett Squares. Students will manipulate a probability trail with the Graphing Calculator application of a probability simulator using marbles. Students will connect marbles with homozygous and heterozygous genes. Students will communicate their trials in fraction and percentage form. Students will then manipulate Agent Sheets to understand how Punnett Squares determine Homozygous and Heterozygous genetic trait probabilities.
