Click on the link for Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis Videos
  • These are videos that explain all of these concepts. You can use these to complete your worksheets and also to review for your test

Mitosis: How does 1 cell become 2? How did we go from little babies to big people??

  • Cells Alive Assignment!

  • What does cancer have to do with mitosis?

  • Great book ... great story ... Henrietta Lacks


Meiosis. . . the same or different than Mitosis?

  1. Go to
  2. Use the menu on the left. . . find and click on MEIOSIS
  3. View the animation and do the below:
    • Compare Mitosis to Meiosis by creating a Venn Diagram on a piece of paper
    • Include in the Venn Diagram the following:
      • The phases of Mitosis and Meiosis
      • The number of chromosomes at the start and at the end of both Mitosis and Meiosis
      • How many stages are in both Mitosis and Meiosis?
      • Please define the following as well:
        • CROSSING OVER (I'm not talking about a near death experience here guys!)
        • Genetic recombination
    • Complete the following document
    • Click on the link below and watch the multiple animations of meiosis below. You will be taking some of the quizzes that go with the animations
  • Explanation of the Law of Independent Assortment

So how did you do? Make sure the volume is turned on and up! View the animation and take the quiz and then e-mail Mr. Jayo the results at (include your name and period in the e-mail please):

Finally, stem cells
So much has been discussed about stem cells but so few people actually know what they are and what the latest is in terms of their research? Let's find out more about them ...

Good simple intro video

This video provides a more thorough overview of the different types of stem cells-STEM CELL VIDEO 1

The next two videos are from 2005-6 and they talk about stem cells and the ethical issues surrounding them
