of resource:
When students are sick of genetics problems associated with peas, widow's peaks, cystic fibrosis, and Huntington's disease, Trimpe's Smiley Face simulation and Sponge Bob practice problems are humorous ways to offer students practice predicting the outcome of various crosses. Even those who find no humor in the Sponge Bob cartoon itself, enjoy the silly subjects involved in Bikini Bottom inheritance!
