I understand that things are getting busy with your Science Fair project as well.  You may ask for extensions with HOMEWORK if you ask in a reasonable amount of time (the day before is not considered “reasonable.”)  When you ASK for an extension, you must get a RESPONSE before assuming that it has been granted.  When you are granted an extension, a new due date will issued.

*An extra note:  I will not assign homework for Block I/III on next Monday.  No homework will be assigned for Block II next Thursday (I realize that it is after the Science Fair, but unfortunately, it’s the way the schedule has to be because we have Friday, March 16 off.)


Musical notes…..will have to be added later!

    I dont get the difference between phenotypes and genotypes.
    IT confuses me

      Genotype is the combination of alleles. For example, if pea plant as the alleles BB, “BB” is the genotype. The phenotype is the organism’s appearance. In this case, with a genotype of BB, the pea plant will have PURPLE FLOWERS (the phenotype)
