This Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium lesson plan also includes:
High schoolers investigate how Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium is established and what assumptions and conditions are necessary to reach Equilibrium. They model alleles using materials such as index cards, M & M's and goldfish.

Disruption of Genetic EquilibriumLesson Planet
Could a population stay the exact same over time with no change in allele frequencies? The video explains the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium theorem and the assumptions it requires. It discusses mutation, migration, gene flow, genetic drift,...

Hardy-Weinberg Punnett SquareLesson Planet
Scholars learn how to use a Punnett square analyzing red hair and then apply this process to an entire gene pool over time. The instructor walks viewers through a few problems, determining percentages found within a gene pool.

Natural SelectionLesson Planet
Between 1968 and 2002, the total number of peppered moths decreased by almost two thirds, although scientists do now know why. In the 10th video of the series, the instructor defines evolution as any changes to a gene pool. Scholars then...
