Genetic Networks Part II:The purpose of sex is to generate more variation in offspring than can be created by DNA mutation and Mitosis, and Asexual reproduction alone.

This is achieved by a cell division process called Meiosis.

Our Guiding Concept:The role ofMeiosis: halves the number of chromosomes in sex cells AND randomly shuffles them (in 2 different ways) thus creating new combinations of chromosomes which generates variation.

The Mechanism of Biological Evolution

1. Evolution = change over time
2. Natural selection is selection of traits by the environment. It is a mechanism by which a changing environment selects those organisms whose traits are best adapted for survival within that environment.
3. A change over time of a species (biological evolution) occurs because of a slowly changing environment and natural selection.

*** the 'be sure to include" bullets on the short answer (SA) and/or calculation problem (CP) end up being the“look fors”on the scoring rubric provided by the stateso use them as your headings.

*** when designing an experiment..........

1.The hypothesis needs to be in the” if-then-because”format

2.mention that you do“multiple trials”for each treatment group. This is a must

3.Differentiate/Identify “control group” “manipulated variable” and “responding variable”

4.It is important to include“measure and RECORD”in any procedures they write-out

5.When making conclusions/inferences from the collected datarefer tospecific data(numerical data) to support if available not just open-ended statements
