Week 2 Sem 2 Mutation types


Week 2
Biology CP and Biology Honors
Jan 19 2016 Tuesday
QFD: Breakdowns can create breakthroughs. Things fall apart so things can fall together
Essential question of the day : define a positive mutation
This weeks learning objective : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
1) handout pedigree due
2) article on positive mutations
Hw : finish questions

QFD: A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.
Chinese proverb
Essential question of the day : Explain why more mutations are harmful to humans than are helpful and include environmental factors
This weeks learning objective : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
1) genetics notes
2) vocabulary

QFD: The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Essential question of the day : Name and describe 3 different types of mutations caused during replication
This weeks learning objective : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
1) quiz
2) project mutation ( Google classroom)

Building a model of a mutation
1) investigate one of the various types of mutations and describe in a paragraph the changes in the DNA for your organism.. Be specific
2) build a model of the DNA fragment for your organism that shows the specific mutation using any household objects
3) evaluate how this mutation could affect a organism on earth
4) build a model of your organism and be able to demonstrate and describe the mutation to class (fish, mammal, insect, bird, reptile)

What is the name of your organism ?
How many types of the species are there ? Describe
How many are there and how do they reproduce ? Describe
What environment does your species live in ? Compare the environment and what affect this might have on your species ?
How long has your species lived in earth ?
Write a short story (1 page ) explaining how and where you found this creature and why it is a new species.
1. What is human nature? To understand human nature, what topics must you address
2. Do you think your personality was shaped more by how you were raised or by your genes?
3. When scientists learn that a particular brain structure or chemical is associated with a personality trait, how is that knowledge valuable? Does it help us understand the trait better? Does it have practical implications?
4. If you have siblings, was the family environment in which you grew up the same as, or different from, theirs? If different, do these variations account for how you and your siblings turned out?
5. Is there anything useful about depression? Would a person who was unable to experience depression have problems as a result? Can a person learn anything, or benefit in any way, from being depressed?
6. If you could choose, would you rather be high or low on sociosexuality?
7. Women who are high on agreeableness make more accurate assessments of their “mate value,” their attractiveness to the opposite sex. The study that reported this finding did not offer a very clear explanation. Can you come up with one?
8. Do you agree or disagree with evolutionary psychology’s conclusions about sex differences? Do you think these differences exist in the way the theory suggests? Could they be explained as well or better by culture?
9. If you are a woman, would you be comfortable marrying a man who had less education and made less money than you? (If you are a man, would you be comfortable marrying a woman who had more education and made more money than you?) Why? Are these attitudes changing?
10. Do you think psychology will eventually be replaced by biology?
11. Are people just another species of animal? In what ways are people similar to, and different from, “other” animals?

QFD: The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them
Essential question of the day : Compare and contrast a mutation caused during meiosis and mitosis and give an example
This weeks learning objective : HS 3-2 Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis, (2) viable errors occurring during replication, and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.
1) project , stage one research
2) start on questions over the weekend

  1. Aye borden its me marlene I had a question on the project of the animals, my question was what do we have to do one the bottom section because I dont really understand it

    • Watch the video again , the Lego video on genetic drift or the founder affect… If the population of your species was mainly destroyed due to the condition in part 2 that you chose, what are the traits that will survive in part 3
