We are continuing to look at genetics and heredity. This week we are going to study the interesting notion of Punnett Square and Pedigrees. This requires some statistical mathematics, but I have every faith in my students to be able to comprehend the concepts.

It is also Science Week, and on Grade 7 students will be invited to join the activities organised by other students in the Science Fair. If students complete their activities correctly they can gain extra credit.

Vocabulary Words

    • Punnett squares
    • probability

Then, we will spend sometimes solving one-step equations. This is a very crucial skill to be successful in algebra, so students will get to practice a lot of one-step equations. Students will learn, explore, and apply the followings:

    – Algebraic Expressions
    – One-step Equations with Rational Coefficients
