Using this lesson worksheet, computers and a simple programming interface, students step through and build a simple program to sequentially calculate all of the variables in the Hardy Weinberg equations. By building the program in sequence it is hoped that students will learn the sequence to solve a Hardy Weinberg problem and appreciate the value and power of computer number crunching capabilities as well as sequential programming considerations.

Lessons are the building blocks of all curricular structures in the EL Education model. Whether planning a single lesson or a series of lessons, teachers attend to how the lessons sit in the larger arc of curriculum. They carefully craft a beginning, middle, and end, regardless of lesson type. By attending to each lesson with care, teachers ensure that all students are challenged, engaged, and empowered and can transfer their understanding to new contexts. They also give students opportunities to develop and demonstrate Habits of Character.

The lessons posted on this site were designed to engage students with real-world data relevant to content taught in middle school and high school science courses, and to foster an understanding of ways in which they might gather organize, analyze and interpret the data in order to draw scientifically valid inferences, interpretations and conclusions. Most of the labs use computer-based technology of spreadsheet programs or the Python programming interface. The Python lessons guide students in computational thinking to create simple programs to manipulate data. The lessons also provide students (and teachers) with instructions and guidance in the use of these technologies. Teacher and Student worksheets, as well as any supporting files, are linked to from links at the top of each lesson webpage as well as from the downloads page ("downloads" link on the scrolling menu to the left).

We hope these lessons inspire you to start a school garden. If you already have a garden, we think they will help you connect the lessons learned there more closely to your classroom curriculum. A big thank you to Des Moines Schools for being great partners, and for bringing innovative education to Iowa's most diverse population.

"Pre" extension - The first extension creates programming to ask the user for values that are needed to figure out the frequency of individuals showing the recessive trait. This is THE one number needed to calculate all the other frequencies. The frequency of individuals showing the recessive trait is the only one that can be observed in a population BUT it is not always given in the word problem.
"Post" extension - The second will take the frequencies and apply them to an actual population number to generate actual numbers of individuals of the 3 genotypes and numbers of each allele … in that population.

If you already have a garden, we think they will help you connect the lessons learned there more closely to your classroom curriculum.

Today students will use senses to observe unripe, ripe, and overripe produce. They will examine seeds in produce and discuss ways mature plants help baby plants grow. In the garden, they will learn how to harvest produce, sort and count it, eat it in tasty recipes, and plan a garden party to celebrate their learning. Finally, they will reflect on their learning in the garden and make future recommendations.

If you already have a garden, we think they will help you connect the lessons learned there more closely to your classroom curriculum.

As students planned, planted, and maintained their garden, they focused on what plants need to survive. Today they will expand their focus to how garden helps animals, including humans, survive. They will also explore other benefits of gardens. In the garden, they will learn how to harvest produce, sort and count it, eat it in tasty recipes, and plan a garden party to celebrate their learning.
