Objectives of chapter 9 and 10 in the McGraw Hill Book and the Additional Notes

1. Explain why there are upper and lower limits to cell size.
2.Define genome and state what major events must occur during cell division for the entire genome to be passed on to daughter cells.
3. Describe the structure of chromosomes and explain how they change in order for the cell to divide.
4.Describe how the chromosome number changes throughout the human life cycle.
5. List the phases of the cell cycle and describe the sequence of events that occurs during each phase.
6.List the phases of mitosis and describe the events of each phase.
7. Diagram the changes seen in each phase of Mitosis.
8. Compare cytokinesis in animal and plant cells.
9. List several factors that stimulates or inhibits cell growth and control of the cell cycle.
10. Explain how abnormal cell division of cancerous cells differs from normal cell division.
11. Distinguish between embryonic and adult stem cells and the role stem cell play in tissue diffirientiation.
12. Distinguish between asexual and sexual reproduction.
13.Diagram the human life cycle and idicate where in the human body that mitosis and meiosis occur; which cells are the result of meiosis and mitosis; and which cells are haploid.
14. List the phases of meiosis I and meiosis II and describe the events characteristic of each phase.
15. Recognize the phases of meiosis from diagrams or micrographs.
16. Describe the process of synapsis during prophase and why it is so important to genetic recombiation.
17. Compare the phases of meiosis I with mitosis and distinguish between the cromosomal arrangement during metaphase of both processes.
18.Explain how independent assortment, crossing over and random fertilization contribute to genetic variation in sexually reproducing organisms.
19.List several features of Mendel's methods that contributed to his success.
20. State in your own words Mendel's law of segregation.
21. Use a punnett square to predict the results of a monohybrid cross and state the phenotypic and genotypic ratios of the F2 generation.
22. Distinguish between genotype and phenotype; heterozygous and homozygous; dominant and recessive.
23. Demonstrate how a test cross can be used to determine if a dominant phenotype is homozygous or heterozygous.
24. State in your own words, Mendel's law of independent assortment.
25. Use a punnett square to predict the results of a dihybrid cross and state the phenotypic and genotypic ratios of the F2 generation.

1. Pull Cell Cycle, Mitosis, and Meiosis Videos off the google drive folder.

4. Work on Labs and study chapters 9 and 10. The requirements for the Lab reports are in the file posted below. If you have questions you need to ask immediately!! Do not wait until Thursday to ask how you are supposed to do something. The Cell Division Lab 14 must be done in the class as well as the Bio Kit Simulation. The other labs can be done at home. Take this into consideration when managing your time.
