Mitosis and Meiosis Assessment
1.  Draw the four stages of mitosis as you did in the lab.  In each drawing be sure to account for (in other words label) the nuclear membrane, the chromosomes, the centrioles, and the spindle fibers.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

2.  Draw a picture of the cell cycle.  How many stages are in it?  What is the cell doing in each?  How long does each stage last?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

3.  Define the following terms:

-chromatin-
 

-centriole-
 

-somatic cells-
 

-gamete-
 

-cytokinesis-
 
 

4. List at least two (2) differences between mitosis and meiosis.
 
 
 
 
 
 

5.  On a microscope, which do you focus with first, the coarse adjustment or the fine adjustment?  Why?
