Today, we will begin our sciences words of the day (WOD). The science words of the day (WOD) will be completed in class. There is a handout associated with the "Science Word of Day". I will give students one copy of the WOD. If students lose or disfigure the sheet, they are responsible for downloading and completing the work. The WOD are meant to be done in class. Students should not "go ahead", and if a student misses a word (excused absence, etc.), then they are responsible for completing the work in order. We will do two words today. Typically, we only do one to three word(s) of the day (WOD) daily. The entire list of WOD may be found on p.1124-1125. Keep the words in order, make up words missed, and do not go ahead of the class.

Practice Genetics Problems (to be copied and completed)

Genetics problems - While height in humans is controlled by more than one gene, Let's pretend there is a single gene for height in

humans. With single genes, there is the option of being one thing or another, but no "inbetweens". So, with height in humans

one may either be Tall (T) or short (t). The different forms of a gene are called alleles. Generally, alleles occur in

pairs (as in diploid). Alleles are not different genes, but different forms of the same gene. Some alleles are dominant

over the other and they are designated with a capital letter. So, in order for a recessive allele (lower-case letter) to

show (phenotype), it must be homozygous. While the dominant allele may be pure (homozygous) or a hybrid

(heterozygous). How would one show the genotype of a short individual? a tall individual?

1. What genotype would be needed to test whether a phenotypically tall person was homozygous or heterozygous for

tallness? What type of cross is this?

2. Give the genotypic and phenotypic ratios for a cross (breeding) between a heterozygous Tall male and a heterozygous Tall female.

3. Brown eye color is dominant over blue eye color in humans. A heterozygous tall heterozygous brown-eyed female crosses

with a homozygous tall heterozygous brown-eyed male. Since this cross involves two traits (genes), it is called a dihybid cross.

a. Give the genotypes for the parents.

b. Give the gametes (eggs for female, and sperm for males).

c. Create and complete the Punnett square for the cross.

d. Give the genotypic and phenotyic ratios resulting from the cross.

4. A heterozygous tall heterozygous brown-eyed female crosses with a heterozygous tall heterozygous brown-eyed male.

Since this cross involves two traits (genes), it is called a dihybid cross.

Some traits are associated with gender. These traits are called sex-linked or X-linked traits. These traits include color-blindness and hemophilia. A carrier is someone who has the one of the alleles for the trait, but does not exhibit the trait. The difference between men's and women's chromosomes is due to the the sex chromosomes in males. A male's sex chromosomes are actually an X and a Y. The Y is actually a decrepit X. Since it is missing a "leg" of its chromosome (and its genes) this generally creates the disease condition in males at a greater amount than that found in females.

5. A female carrier for hemophilia crosses with a non-hemophiliac father. Give the genotypic and phenotypic ratios resulting from this cross.

6. A (mother) non-hemophiliac x with (father) with hemophilia producing a daughter with hemophilia. What is the genotype of the mother?

All classes will complete Lab: Mendelian Traits

For Periods 6 and 7 only!: Tuesday; December 8, 2015 - Reading Day in class for the Project - Science Fact or Fiction (Book Movie Project). Students are to bring in their book (chosen form the list given on the attachment - hard copy distributed in class previously.). Students will spend the day reading their book in class. I realize that some students will not have their book. In lieu of reading, please send in a note verifying that you know that a book for the project is to be read (and the same titled move viewed). Students not having their book on 12/8/15 will work on another assignment as not to disturb the readers in class... I will give a grade for the day of reading - the note will ensure your child receives a "good" grade. I sent you this notice so you might locate a copy of the book and have it available on the reading day. At the time of collection for the project (1/20/2016) , I will ask that you sign the project sheet indicating that your child read the book, answered the questions, and saw the movie in an honest, appropriate manner.
