Hardy-Weinberg

Hi guys!

 

We're doing our explorations now and since I'm not the strongest in Math, I want to use a topic that will be useful in another subject as wekk, so I turned to Biology. So what I figured out was that I'm fascinated by genetics, ecology and probability; and the Hardy-Weinberg principle seems like a perfect match. This is the thing: I've seen people say it's been used in IAs before but how? The math behind that principle is super basic, isn't it––p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1 is definitely not SL level Math.

 

Does anyone have any advice on how to go on from that? We haven't done probability yet, so maybe I'm missing something big here?

 

Thank you so much!
