1a Using well labelled diagrams create 2, 2 fold leaflets outlining the stages of Mitosis and Meiosis. You need to create one leaflet for each (P2).
1b Using well labelled diagrams explain how the behaviour of chromosomes during meiosis leads to variation. In this report you must explain crossing over and independent assortment (P4). (Max 500 words)
1c Create a table comparing mitosis and meiosis (P2).
2 Carry out practical investigations to record stages of cell division in garlic / onion root tip cells (P3). Using photographs of your results identify at least 5 cells that are dividing and explain the stage these cell are in and the behaviour of the chromosomes.(P2 & M2)
WHEN ANSWERING ALL QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD REFER AND CONSIDER THE GRADING CRITERIA:
P2 Identify the stages of mitosis and meiosis in eukaryotic cells [IE1; CT2]
P3 Carry out
