Gene Coin Toss Problem: Is the probability of the coin outcomes accurate? Hypothesis: Yes, if the statistics of tossing two coins is correct, then the outcomes will prove that. Variables: *Dependant: the outcome *Independent: the statistics of tossing two coins *Control: the coins that you use, the cup, the surface that it lands on, and the number of times that you shake the cup. Materials: *1 cup *Two coins that are the same (nickels, dimes, pennies, etc.) Procedure: First, gather all of your materials. (1 cup and 2 coins) Next, make your data table. It should look like the one on the following page. Each combination represents a genotype. Heads, heads is homozygous dominant, tails, tails is homozygous recessive, and heads, tails is heterozygous. Next, put your coins into the cup, shake it 5 times, and on the 5th time, dump the coins. Record your results on the tally column in your data table. After repeating this process 10 and 50 times, recording your results each time, analyze and draw conclusions. Data and Observations: Conclusion: My hypothesis was correct; my statistics were shown by my outcomes. Discussion: I learned that statistically, the probability of something is actually close to the real outcome. And you could use it for lots of stuff in life, like playing cards. And it would be helpful if you were a breeder, like a racehorse owner, and you could use it to make the fastest foals or something. Probability has many uses.
