This Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium lesson plan also includes:
Young scholars 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.

Solving Hardy-Weinberg Problems
What is a gene pool? What do gene pools have to do with the Hardy-Weinberg formula? How was this formula derived? After viewing a video that introduces these concepts, young scientists determine p and q values and then work sample...
