Class Summary - Today we continued the phases of mitosis with metaphase (chromosomes meet in the middle guided by microtubules) , Anaphase (where chromosomes are pulled at the middle centromere), and telophase (where the centromere is pulled apart completely). We then discussed cytokinesis where the cell actually divides the cytoplasm and membrane. We then took a non-graded in class assessment of each phase and what the parts in each phase were. We watched a ‘crash course’ video on mitosis to summarize mitosis. We used models to show what is happening at each stage of mitosis. Students were directed to the review games page to review for the test on Friday.
Homework - Testing on Chapter 3 (Cell Structure and Function) is Scheduled for Friday.
