Quote for the Day : Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome. Rosa Parks
Essential Question of the Day: what does survival of the fittest actually mean?
Today’s learning objective: LS 3.1 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. LS3.B: Variation of Traits
Environmental factors also affect expression of traits, and hence affect the probability of occurrences of traits in a population. Thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Today’s performance objective :
1) students will take notes using a Cornell note format

Quote for the Day : Virtue can only flourish among equals.
Essential Question of the Day: explain the difference between a dominant and a recessive trait.
Today’s learning objective: LS 3.1 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. LS3.B: Variation of Traits
Environmental factors also affect expression of traits, and hence affect the probability of occurrences of traits in a population. Thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Today’s performance objective
1) students will complete a Webquest about probabilities of offspring and genetic variation

Quote for the Day : The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal. Aristotle
Essential Question of the Day: What are is the main factors that ensures a species will survive
Today’s learning objective: LS 3.1 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. LS3.B: Variation of Traits
Environmental factors also affect expression of traits, and hence affect the probability of occurrences of traits in a population. Thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Today’s performance objective
1) students will complete a quiz to demonstrate their knowledge of general genetics concepts

Quote for the Day : The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.
Essential Question of the Day: how is overpopulation overcome in nature ?
Today’s learning objective: LS 3.1 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. LS3.B: Variation of Traits
Environmental factors also affect expression of traits, and hence affect the probability of occurrences of traits in a population. Thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Today’s performance objective
1) students will investigate variation within species that are assigned and will explore possible mutations that have occurred over time to increase the species survival

Quote for the Day : I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. MLK
Essential Question of the Day: who is Gregor Mendel ? Charles Darwin ? What are their contributions to science ?
Today’s learning objective: LS 3.1 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population. LS3.B: Variation of Traits
Environmental factors also affect expression of traits, and hence affect the probability of occurrences of traits in a population. Thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Today’s performance objective
1) students will a documentary on Gregor Mendel and the survival of species …handout w film
