Week 16: Heredity

Mrs. Partin's Biology Class

Important Dates for the Week

This week, we will be exploring the study of Genetics and Heredity! We will investigate how traits are passed on to parents and offspring specifically focusing on inheritance patterns!


You will continue to receive small EOC Review packets every other day or so from now until the end of the semester. You will be expected to complete these packets over two evenings to turn in for a grade. Completing these packets will GREATLY improve your performance on the Final Exam which is 25% of your grade.


If you find yourself stumped along the way and needing extra help, please set an appointment for tutoring with me one morning!
