A creative way to teach Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium principles. without the difficult square roots. All students need to know how to do is take an average. This activity is a good way to introduce evolution right after genetics.
A Delicious Way to Teach the Hardy Weinberg Principle
Population Genetics: The Hardy Weinberg Principle A Biology Lab for students in grades The Hardy - Weinberg Principle is stated as an equation: + + = 1 This equation can be used to predict the percentage of a population having a certain genetic trait.
This EDITABLE 4-page worksheet summarizes the conditions necessary for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, provides an example of the calculation, and asks students to practice several calculations and checks their understanding of the conditions. I use this as a gradual release (I do, we do, you do) worksheet.
