Extra Credit Quizzes

 

Directions: To earn Extra Credit take the linked quizzes below during the appropriate time frame. (Sometimes links no longer work. My apologies. If you would like to inform me of a broken link and suggest a link to replace it, please email me. Thank You)

Score 100% on the quiz. Take a screen shot of your 100% (showing the ENTIRE page, not just the score) and paste it into a word document. Make sure you type your name in the upper right-hand corner of the Word document.

Paste all of the quizzes that you would like to take in a unit in ONE document, and when you are done save it as a PDF file (save it with YOUR name AND with the title of the Bonus Quiz topic). Upload your completed PDF file to the appropriate VERGE Assignment folder before the due date posted. I will only accept 1 (the 1st) submission per quiz topic (so please do not send me 10 different quizzes in 10 different documents).

• non-lethal errors occurring during replication and/or

 • heritable mutations caused by environmental factors

• new genetic combinations through meiosis 

• non-lethal errors occurring during replication and/or

 • heritable mutations caused by environmental factors
