UNIT PLAN HEREDITY AND GENETICS Course: High School Biology Time Allotted: 3-4 weeks Previous Unit: Cells Next Unit: Evolution Overarching Goal: Students will apply their understanding of genetics and heredity in discussions of current medical and social issues and in the appreciation of human diversity. Curriculum: Benchmarks and State Standards (8 th grade and CIM levels) Content Standard: “Understanding the transmission of traits in living things.” Benchmark: “Identify traits inherited through genes and those resulting from interactions with the environment.” Benchmark: “Use simple laws of probability to predict patterns of heredity with the use of Punnett squares.” Benchmark: “Explain how our understanding of heredity has changed over time.” Benchmark: “Describe the structure of DNA and the way that DNA functions to control protein synthesis.” Benchmark: “Explain the laws of heredity and their relationship to the structure and function of DNA.” Benchmark: “Recognize and understand the differences between meiosis and mitosis in cellular respiration.” Benchmark: “Recognize that changes in DNA (mutations) and anomalies in chromosomes create changes in organisms.” Benchmark: “Apply concepts of inheritance of traits, including Mendel’s laws, Punnett squares, and pedigrees, to determine the characteristics of offspring.” Benchmark: “Recognize the existence of technology that can alter and/or determine inherited traits.” Unit Plan Heredity and Genetics 1 of 6 7/28/2017

    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.
