Today in Class:

    1.  Students completed the Mitosis Microscope Station Lab.  This took the better half of the class.  You should have had time to refer to your textbook and answer the questions as you looked at the cells on the slides.
    2. Next, I passed back the corrected  Mitosis WS.  You should have then been able to answer the questions with a bit more understanding aftre you completed the lab.
    3. Some of the classes next had time to view a Mitosis video- the videos below are great to stop and start – to identify the phases and understand how the process of Mitosis and Cell Cycle works.


Review the Cell Cycle and Mitosis.  Use your notes (pp.60-61), read your Hamburger Frame, and/or watch a video below and practice.

PBS Media, Mitosis  a nice video with verbal commentary
  1. This is a short video clip – unlabeled – of mitosis; it is a good video to stop and start and practice with.
