## Ordering the Chaos

• 0:00 - 0:03
Trying to figure out how certain traits are inherited can
• 0:03 - 0:06
be really difficult. Sometimes we have a trait like one
• 0:06 - 0:09
of our parents or the other, and other times we
• 0:09 - 0:12
may have a trait not like our parents at all.
• 0:12 - 0:16
Take these three examples of families with different traits. For
• 0:16 - 0:19
example, look at height in the first scenario. We have
• 0:19 - 0:22
two parents who are relatively short. Will have a son
• 0:22 - 0:26
that's taller than both of them. Much taller, in fact.
• 0:26 - 0:29
We have a family where the parents have a daughter
• 0:29 - 0:31
and a little baby. And they all share the same
• 0:31 - 0:35
skin color, roughly speaking. And in this third family, we
• 0:35 - 0:38
have one parent who has a disposition of being happy
• 0:38 - 0:41
all the time. And the other parent has a disposition
• 0:41 - 0:44
of being sad all the time. Both the daughter and
• 0:44 - 0:47
the son have a disposition of being happy. What I
• 0:47 - 0:51
want you to tell me, is does the indicated trait appear
• 0:51 - 0:55
related to one or both of the parents at all? For
• 0:55 - 0:57
example, in the case of height, I want you to compare the
• 0:57 - 1:01
son to the parents. And see if it appears that in some
• 1:01 - 1:04
form or fashion whether it's a combination of the parents or one
• 1:04 - 1:08
of the parents sharing this trait, does the son appear related with
• 1:08 - 1:11
regards to this particular trait of height. And the same thing in
• 1:11 - 1:13
the scenario with skin color and the same thing with the scenario
• 1:13 - 1:16
we set up for disposition. Go ahead and tell me which answer
• 1:16 - 1:18
you think is best for each case.
