This is an animated PowerPoint presentation that covers section of 5.2 Cell Division of the Edexcel IGCSE Biology course.
The PowerPoint covers the following questions:
Do you understand that mitosis produces two cells which contain identical sets of chromosomes? When does mitosis occur? Do you understand that division of a cell by meiosis produces four cells, each with half the number of chromosomes, and that this results in the formation of genetically different haploid gametes? Do you understand that random fertilisation produces genetic variation of offspring? Do you understand that variation within a species can be genetic, environmental, or a combination of both?
The PowerPoint is designed to directly address each relevant point in the syllabus. It is simple and straight to the point covering the topic in just the right amount of detail.
It's a fantastic resource for both teachers and students or a great tool for revision.
Many of the slides have animations in that will only work when viewed in slideshow mode, so please use that when working through the presentation.
