Concordance Rate

Card match activity to get students to calculate and understand concordance rate. Each card is a pair of twins. Students first separate into MZ and DZ. Then select only the cards where a trait is present (in one OR both twins). Of these, work out the percentage of pairs where the trait is shared by both twins. I have used Gender (obv 100% concordance for MZs) Schizophrenia and Depression as the traits.

These study summaries were created by myself and another teacher (thanks Karen for the original proforma!) to give to A2 students studying OCR. As we are using two textbooks and not necessarily the study listed in the textbook we decided to do these so that students could keep a summary in their folders and did not get confused when different studies were mentioned in the book.
