Mertens, Thomas R.
American Biology Teacher, v45 n5 p264-66 Sep 1983
Background information, laboratory procedures (including matings performed), and results are presented for an open-ended investigation using the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. Once data are collected, students develop hypotheses to explain results as well as devise additional experiments to test their hypotheses. Calculation of chi-square for data obtained by students is included. (JN)
