Title: Human Genetics and the Dominant Trait

Description: The Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education presents a series of activities dealing with human genetics and dominant traits. In this activity, students can make theories and then test those predictions concerning genetics and dominant inherited traits by using a very small sample - classroom peers - and then modeling their collected information on a worldwide project. By using a small sample, the worldwide survey and reading of information becomes real for the student, while providing the information of a larger sample to compare with the students' conclusions. The activity includes detailed instructions for the activity, course objectives, potential problem areas, and a guide to assessment of information collected. This website could be useful for teachers planning lessons or for students designing projects based on class work and class material.
