Interactive Class Notes / Learning Log / Textbook Notes Learning Goal: o Describe the process of meiosis, including independent assortment and crossing  over. o Explain how reduction division results in the formation of haploid gametes or  spores.  o SC.912.L.16.17:  Compare and contrast mitosis and meiosis and relate to the  processes of sexual and asexual reproduction and their consequences for genetic  variation. (H) Think About It As geneticists in the early 1900s applied Mendel’s laws, they wondered where genes might be located.  They expected genes to be carried on structures inside the cell, but  which  structures What cellular processes could account for segregation and independent assortment, as Mendel had described? Watch Intro Video Clip: Remember to  REVIEW  these  notes daily so you will be ready  to participate in class discussion the next day.  This practice of  daily review will also prepare  you for future assessments.

Make it Personal 1. Do you think that either  your MOM or DAD gave you more genetic  information than the  other? Or do you think  that you inherited an  equal amount of genetic  information from each?  Explain. Make Predictions I have half of my mother’s genetic  information and half of my fathers, you will always have equal parts of both parents. 1. What is the record of  one woman giving birth  to children over her  lifetime? In other words, what is the most amount  of children a woman  ever had? 2. How many viable egg  cells (on average) do you  think that a woman will  produce in a lifetime? 3. How many viable sperm  cells (on average) do you  think that a man will  produce in a lifetime? 4. What are the chances of  ‘You being you’? 5. What do you think is the  statistical probability of  the union of the exact  sperm cell and egg that  created the zygote from  which you originated?  (In other words, what  are the chances of you  being born- statistically  speaking?) 6. What biological process  gives rise to such genetic  diversity?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
