Investigation 2: MATHEMAT ICAL MODELING: HARDY -WEINBERG*
How can mathematical models be used to investigate the relationship between allele frequencies in populations of organisms and evolutionary change?
• use a data set that reflects a change in the genetic makeup of a population over time and to apply mathematical methods and conceptual understandings to
investigate the cause(s) and effect(s) of this change.
• apply mathematical methods to data from a real or simulated population to predict what will happen to the population in the future.
• evaluate data-based evidence that describes evolutionary changes in the genetic makeup of a population over time.
• use data from mathematical models based on the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium to analyze genetic drift and the effect of selection in the evolution of specific populations.
• justify data from mathematical models based on the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium to analyze genetic drift and the effects of selection in the evolution of specific populations.
• describe a model that represents evolution within a population.
• evaluate data sets that illustrate evolution as an ongoing process

Chapter Review Due:
Start Investigation 2: Go over backgrount info (starts on page 25).
- introduce modeling activity- we will be in the computer lab on Tuesday (1 hr.).
- you should be up to page 36 at the end of that time period.
