2014 revision

The 2014 revision of the Student Handout has substantially revised questions to improve student learning of the most important concepts related to the structure, function and replication of DNA. The revised Student Handout also incorporates hands-on modeling of DNA replication. The Teacher Preparation Notes have been revised to accommodate these changes, to indicate alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards, and to suggest follow-up activities.
