HOW DOES LIFE PERSIST?
Our third unit of the year (1st of this semester) is all about Genetics. We will be studying how we actually inherit our traits from our parents - why we look the way we look!!! There are many different pieces to genetics that we will be learning about. We will also discuss the tools used in genetics to track characteristics and calculate probability of specific traits/diseases being passed from generation to generation. As will previous units, there is a TON of vocabulary. To help, every Friday in this unit you will receive VOCAB homework - this will consist of the words we covered during the week. These papers will help provide a resource to study, and better understand all of these big new words!!! OK, here we go!!! Let's get into genetics!!
