This course discusses the principles of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms, including humans. The topics include: structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes, biological variation resulting from recombination, mutation, and selection, population genetics, use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation and inherited disease.

Mrs.Collins is a certified science teacher with 24 years of experience. She currently writes science curriculum for many public school systems. This course will focus on the basics of genetics, genetic scientists, genetic history, traits and a unit on animal genetics. Mrs. Collins has taught Animal Genetics at UGA. 

This class will meet for live instruction once a week. During class time, students will talk about different related topics and participation in group discussions. After the live meeting, students will work in Canvas on 5-7 weekly assignments. Along the way, students will add assignments, notes, and diagrams to their science spiral notebook. 

Goals:

To review basic biology genetics fundamentals.

To develop students’ knowledge of more complex genetic inheritance patterns.

To help students recognize and understand the use of a variety of scientific tools for manipulation of DNA (terms and techniques).

To enable students to read about genetically modified organisms and DNA testing and write about it in a way that reflects intelligent and thoughtful analysis.

To provide a wide range of learning opportunities, including worksheets, labs, tests, and essays, in order for students of varying ability levels to be successful.

To learn what is currently being utilized in the realm of genetics and glimpse what future advances may be possible.

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.

Your students will enjoy this class!

Mrs. Collins is extremely organized and communicates well. The class is set up so that the student can work independently and any needed supplies are communicated in advance. Zoom classes are interactive and hold my child’s interest, and she looks forward to them every week. As an aside, we had to miss some because of medical issues that came up and Mrs. Collins was very accommodating, and my child was able to keep up and not get behind which was greatly appreciated. OTA is also very responsive and makes the signup process seamless. Our first experience with OTA is a great one!

Dynamic Anatomy!

Mrs. Collins is a fantastic teacher who is able to reach each of her students and keep the class interactive. My daughter has enjoyed all the labs that she can complete on her own as a HS junior. The dissections are her favorite part, but I think more than anything it’s the variety in assignments that keeps her engaged and looking forward to each class. Mrs. Collins is easy for the students to talk to and is very responsive to emails. If you have a student looking for a science class and teacher that breaks the mold and teaches in an intuitive way, you should sign up! No regrets!
