Chromosome and Chromatid Numbers during Mitosis and Meiosis
Further, homolog chromosomes separate during metaphase I of meiosis, whereas during mitosis and metaphase II the separating structures are the chromatides.
Similarities of Mitosis and Meiosis | Sciencing
The difference between the separation in mitosis and metaphase II (meiosis) is that halfing of the number of chromosomes has preceeded meiosis II, in contrast to mitosis.
This activity is designed to help students review the processes of mitosis and meiosis and to ensure that students understand how chromosomes move during mitosis vs. meiosis. Students arrange the cards from a shuffled deck of the stages of mitosis and meiosis in the sequence of steps that occur during cell division by mitosis and another sequence of steps that occur during cell division by meiosis. The first file shown below can be used to print the simpler version of the deck of cards for this activity and the second file can be used to print the more challenging version of the deck of cards for this activity. The third file gives the teacher notes.
