Description:

This investigation of the genetics of the Sickle Cell trait via a mathematical model uses probability and teaches properties of quadratic functions and the concept of optimization of a function. The properties of quadratic functions brought out by this investigation are

-the relationship between the zeros of the function and its factors,

-the relationship between the zeros and the location of its vertex,

-the symmetry of its graph, and the location of its extreme point,

-factors of quadratics of the form ax^2 + bx
