Flow Diagram Homework Assignment
Using the table below, explain the purpose of each of the steps of the Experimental Flow Diagram (Figure 1 from your lab
manual) for answering the two research questions guiding this laboratory investigation:
Trinomials are algebraic expressions that contain three terms and are created by multiplying a
binomial by itself.
Formula: ax2 + bx + c
X is a variable and a, b, and c are constants
Step one: You must divide the middle term by 2 (the middle is b)
How can you determine the genotype
of a pea plant with purple flowers?
A test cross can be used to determine the
genotype of an individual with a dominant
When do you see the recessive
phenotype in the offspring when
doing a test cross?
A serial dilution is any dilution where the
concentration decreases by the same quantity
in each successive step.
Serial dilutions are mutiplicative.
The main strategy behind the serial dilution
method is to dilute the bacterial sample
