1.  Understand the intimate relationship between populations and diversity A.  Define  and  relate  population, gene pool, genotype frequency, allele frequency, and  phenotype (or trait) frequency B. For a given organism,  list  traits that could be measured in a population D.  Explain  (in your own words) the predictions of the Hardy-Weinberg (HW) Principle F.  Recall  the meaning of the terms   p, q, p 2 , q 2 , 2pq of the HW equation J.  Relate  frequencies/probabilities of offspring of two parents to population allele/genotype  frequencies K.  Relate  the process of meiosis to the Hardy-Weinberg principle, in the context of  populations. L.  Calculate  allele frequencies given genotype frequencies N.  Justify  why p 2  + 2pq + q 2  = 1.0, and why p + q = 1.0 O. Using allele frequencies,  calculate  genotype frequencies under Hardy-Weinberg  equilibrium
