How is a punnett square a model for what happens during meiosis?

Haha, lazy for workbook questions, eh? Well here ya' go.

Punnett squares are a model for what happens during meiosis

because they are an easier way to show the events that occur at

meiosis.

^ so not the answer. LOL

During meiosis, the chromosomes segregate into gametes. The

gamete of one parent combines with the gamete of another. A PS has

all the possible gametes of both parents. One on the top and one

going down the left. The squares are then filled with all the

possible combinations.

So it shows all the possible products of meiosis for both

parents, and then all of their possible combinations...
