MS-LS3-2. Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
Science & Engineering Practices
Analyzing and Interpreting Data - Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (e.g., computational, mathematical) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims or determine an optimal design solution
Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms Organisms reproduce, either sexually or asexually, and transfer their genetic information to their offspring.
LS3.A: Inheritance of Traits - DNA carries instructions for forming species’ characteristics.
Patterns - Students identify similarities and differences in order to sort and classify natural objects and designed products.
