Monster Mash Objective: 1. I will know that traits are passed from parent to offspring in a RANDOM process – an unplanned, but specific method. 2. I will know that a genotype is made of two alleles (represented by letters) and that the capital letter always goes first. 3. I will know that only one dominant (capital letter) allele is needed for a dominant trait to appear, but you need two recessive (lower-case letter) alleles for a recessive trait to appear. What You Will Be Creating You are making a family of monsters. You will make the mom, the dad, and the baby. Each monster has twelve characteristics. Each characteristic has two possible traits that can be selected by chance. You will make the mom and dad from scratch by flipping a coin to RANDOMLY select their genes, one allele at a time. Then, you will make the baby (the offspring) by using a Punnett Square. Finally, you will randomly select the possible genotype of the offspring.

    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.
