Suggested Use

This resource will be helpful when introducing meiosis and mitosis to an introductory biology class, but the advanced questions and errors can be useful with upper AP biology students.  The links and pictures are excellent for helping students understand  untangible topics.

Cathia Acton, The Burlington School

This resource provides a well-organized overview of the process of meiosis complete with links, drawings, definitions, and explanations. It would be a great resource for students to study, and a helpful tool for teachers to review when planning instruction. The information is appropriate for high school students and includes details about each phase in meiosis, an explanation of genetic recombination, errors, and checkpoints. Although this resource may provide more detail than needed, it provides clear definitions and descriptions of many topics related to meiosis.
