DAY 1: PROBABILITY DAY 2: GENETICS DAY 3: EXTENSIONS
This unit is
divided up into three days. The first day should be devoted
to the understanding of the principals of probability via
interactive programs provided on this site.
All students learn differently,
therefore, we must present the material in a diverse manner. The
second day will be focused on the use of probability in genetics.
The final day is designed for
extension explorations in pertinent areas of sociology, economics
and ethics: our human condition.
The student should always keep in mind that he or she is going to apply their newly gain knowledge in a creative and informed manner on day three. They will be asked to do an independent research project of their own choice. Three topics are provided, but the student's interests and personal history may influence them into another direction.
