Welcome back to science!

In today's class you will be:

  • Taking a genetic survey of some of your traits
  • Using the data that we create to make three bar graphs


Taking a genetic survey of some of your traits
Look at the powerpoint on the left and decide whether or not you have these traits:
  1. Curly/Straight Hair
  2. Free/Attached Earlobes
  3. Dimples/No Dimples
  4. Left Thumb on Top/Right Thumb on Top (This will make more sense with the pictures on the powerpoint)

Using the data that we create to make three bar graphs

After creating a post-it with our traits on them, we hung them on the Heredi'tree' to see how the traits are distributed among Marc's Living Environment students.

We then used this data to create bar graphs in order to visualize the data in a different way. The choices for the bar graphs are in the powerpoint.
