Hardy Weinberg Squirrels
This activity was created for students to complete on their own during the Covid19 pandemic. Hardy Weinberg equilibrium can be a difficult concept, even with class guidance, so I’ve attempted to break it down into small bitesized pieces. The HardyWeinberg equation is a fundamental principle in population genetics that describes the relationship between allele frequencies…

Hardy Weinberg Problemset
HardyWeinberg equilibrium (HWE) is a fundamental concept in population genetics that describes the theoretical relationship between allele frequencies and genotype frequencies in an ideal, nonevolving population. Students can practice using the Hardy Weinberg equilibrium equation to determine the allele frequencies in a population. This set of 10 questions gives students just enough information to solve…

Teddy Graham Lab Modeling HW Equilibrium
Model Hardy Weinberg equilibrium using Teddy Grahams. Compare happy bears to sad bears.

Estimating Population Size: A Netlogo Simulation
Students learn how the “mark and recapture” technique can be used to estimate population sizes by using a netlogo simulation that allows students to alter variables such as population size, and number of individuals marked.

Calculate the Biodiversity Index of a Beach
This activity asks students to sort seashells and calculate the Simpson’s biodiversity index. The calculation is based on the number species in an area, dependent upon richness (number of unique species) and abundance (number of individual species).

Hardy Weinberg and the Pocket Mouse
Use Hardy Weinberg equilibrium to analyze data of rock pocket mouse populations in the desert.
