Learning Target Unit #5
Genetic Basis of Life
AP Biology
Chapters 13, 14, & 15
Overview of Lecture & Discussion Topics (27 days):
1. Genes are passed from parents to offspring by the inheritance of
2. How meiosis reduces the number of chromosomes (diploid to
3. Evolutionary significance of genetic variation that results from
sexual life
4. Concepts of Mendelian genetics (laws of probability, inheritance
5. Genes are located along chromosomes (concepts of gene linkage,
distance between genes, causes of genetic disorders) [CR5]
Days Common Core/Quality Core Standard (s)
Big Idea 1: The process of evolution drives the diversity and unity
of life.
Big idea 3: Living systems store, retrieve, transmit and respond to
information essential to life processes.
Big Idea 4: Biological systems interact, and these systems and their
interactions possess complex properties.
I can explain how the change in the genetic makeup of a population over time is evolution.
I can explain how heritable information provides for continuity of life.
I can explain why the processing of genetic information is imperfect and is a source of
genetic variation.
I can describe how naturally occurring diversity among and between components within
biological systems affects interactions with the environment.
1. Knowing the % of each color in packages of M&M’s, as published by the
packaging company, students will count the colors in packages and apply the null
hypothesis concept and Chi Square calculations on the data. (SP 2) [CR4c]
2. Students will be given data from a Genetics of Drosophila laboratory involving
three crosses of the fruit flies. All of the observations will be given to them. They
will develop a null hypothesis as to the mode of inheritance based on the data, and
they will use the Chi Square statistical analysis to determine whether to accept or
reject the hypothesis. (SP 2, 5)
3. Students will use dry erase boards, beads, etc… to simulate the process of meiosis and explain
when haploidy occurs. (SP 1)
