Review : Geosphere, Hydrosphere, Atmosphere, and Bioshere along with how they interact with each other.
New: Mitosis :
Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, and Cytokenesis. We will study what occurs at each phase and why it is important.
1-14-2013 to 1-18-2013
Interphase: Normal cell life
Prophase: Chromatin condense into chromatids
mitotic spindles form
Prometaphase: nuclear envelope dissolves
spindle fibers attatch to kineticores
Metaphase: Chromosomes line up at the cell equator
Anaphase: Chromatids are pulled apart
Telophase: New nuclear envelope forms
Cytokenesis: Cell pinches into two new daughter cells (identical)
