Answer the following questions:
a. How does the coin flip relate to the probability of inheriting genetic conditions?
It makes the probability exact because you have a 50% chance of inheriting genes from both your mother and father. Shown with the coin flip of you also having a 50% chance of landing on either side.
b. How does this simulation accurately represent or not represent real life?
It doesn’t represent real life because some of the traits listed are not all traits that your real parents would have, and if both parents had blue eyes and the child had brown there is no trace of brown in the ancestry than it wouldn’t make sense, it is represented accurately because there is a 50% chance of receiving the different traits if your parents do have them.
Did you identify any prejudices you might have about what traits you find “desirable”? Where do you think these prejudices come from?
Yes there were certain traits that are more desirable then other, for example I wouldn’t want my child to have a una brow because the stereotypes in the world point them to a negative image.
