Difference Between Mitosis & Meiosis

Understanding the differences and similarities between Mitosis and Meiosis is a challenge!  This video might help.  http://www.diffen.com/difference/Meiosis_vs_Mitosis

Module 7

Rather than performing Experiment 7.1 in class, I would like you to watch the following You-Tube video:

Then for Experiment 7.2 please do the following:

1.  To view animal cells undergoing mitosis, visit http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/animals/cell/mitosis/label/label.GIF

2.  Sketch (or print) the cells as shown.

3.  Label each cell with the stage it is in.

4.  Check your animal cell labels here:  http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/animals/cell/mitosis/label/labelanswers.GIF

5.  Click on this link to see the differences between plant and animal telophase and cytokinesis.  Write a paragraph describing what happens in each type of cell.

Please bring your labeled drawing and paragraph to class on January 11.
