2007 GENA lesson plan: Understanding Patterns of Inheritance through Pedigree Analysis


This lesson was designed to help high school biology students understand and recognize patterns of inheritance as illustrated by pedigrees. It is hoped that students will be able to relate the passing of traits to their understanding of chromosomal segregation and assortment, and that this will help them better recognize the relationship between traits, chromosomes, and genes.
