Students will individually complete the online problem sets at the following website. The problem sets available are Monohybrid Crosses and Dihybrid Crosses. Students will then create two appropriate crosses for the problem sets.

Students will have had practice with both monohybrid and dihybrid cross problems. This assignment will be used near the middle of the unit. It will serve as a review for the monohybrid problems and practice on the newly introduced dihybrid prolems.

Learning Objectives:

Students will develop problem solving skills for both monohybrid and dihybrid cross problems. Students will construct multiple choice monohybrid cross and dihybrid cross problems that demonstrate their conceptual understanding of the material. Students will become familiar with answering online problem sets, as well as traditional means through problem composition.

Introduction: Students will have had practice with both monohybrid and dihybrid cross problems. This assignment will be used near the middle of the unit. It will serve as a review for the monohybrid problems and practice on the newly introduced dihybrid prolems.

Task: Students will individually complete the online problem sets at the following website. The problem sets available are Monohybrid Crosses and Dihybrid Crosses. You are expected to work out the problems (create Punnett Squares,
etc.) as you go through the set. You will be required to turn in your work for both problem sets. If you answer a question incorrectly, utilize the tutorial to help you understand the correct answer as well as to amend your answer on your paper. Your grade is not dependent upon the number of questions you answered correctly the first time, but the effort you put forth to learn the concepts! Take notes, they will only assist you in learning the material!

http://www.biology.arizona.edu/mendelian_genetics/mendelian_genetics.html From this page, click Monohybrid Cross, it will open the problem set page, scroll down and click on the icon for Begin Problem Set, continue through the problem set until you are finished. Feel free to review any problems as the tutorial recommends, or as needed. Follow the same instructions for completing the Dihybrid Cross problem set. The Vocabulary icon is linked to a comprehensive list of terms used in the problem sets. Utilize thisfeature if you have any questions!

In addition, you must create two additional questions for the problem sets. One question should be suitable for the monohybrid cross problem set and the second question should be an appropriate question for the dihybrid cross problem set. These questions must be original and appropriate for the format of the existing problem sets.

What to turn in: Each student must turn in two, original, problems (one monohybrid cross, one dihybrid cross). Each student must turn in their notes/work page for the problem sets, with all corrections.

Evaluation: Students will be graded on the completeness of their work pages and originality and appropriateness of their problem set questions.

Conclusion: Students will develop comprehension of the complexities of monohybrid and dihybrid crosses and apply their knowledge in problem development. They will also be required to use basic skills in the incorporation of technology.
