Genetics: the Basics, History, and Future
Our entry is an educational website devoted to teaching high school level genetics, through a varitey of techniques. Adapted from common student resources, our lesson plan provides a thorough description of each genetic concept in its relavance to a normal biology course. Along with a carefully crafted text portion, each section is accomplanied by an interactive quiz designed specifically for reinforcement of learned information and skills. There is also an extensive glossary of all relevant terms, which is greatly crossreferenced. One is able to set up an account that would allow students to record quiz scores. There is also a review section that contains all of the quizes, as well as an additional 40 genetics questions adapted from the latest New York State Regents Examinations. Our site also provides a message board for students, a manner of contacting us, and a search engine that will find all relevant pages a specific term is applied.
