This is Gregor Mendel. He was a monk who lived in Austria.


This is

Mendel’s

garden.


Mendel grew peas. Many peas.


He liked peas a lot. Here are some of his jars of peas.


He knew peas reproduced sexually (with and egg

and pollen), and he began to control what peas

crossed with other peas.


“Funny,” he thought. “Some of my peas

are tall. Some are short.”


“If I cross a tall pea with a short pea, I get only

tall peas.”


Mendel, a friend, and his tall peas.


“But when I take two tall pea children from

that cross and mix them, I get some tall and

some short. Hmmm….”


Mendel

Started

Adding.


He started counting

all of the short peas

he got, and all of the

tall peas.

He seems very puzzled

in this photo.


Gregor Mendel is called “The father

of modern genetics” because of his

work breeding and analyzing peas

in the 1800’s.

He looked

carefully at his numbers, and

thought hard about:

PROBABILITY- the chance something

will happen. Expressed in percentage

or fraction or ratio. Ex. 25% or 1/4 or 1:3
