Plant Cell Cycle Cramlet Review

All college students will have to take at least one science course, and most of us will end up choosing Biology. This course will usually be more in-depth than the Biology class we took in high school, though, so we naturally need a bit more help to keep up with it. Luckily, Professor Cram has prepared some assistance for all of us reluctant biologists.

The Plant Cell Cycle Cramlet™, for example, explains the process by which a single plant cell divides to produce two plant cells. In a typical biology textbook, this process is shown with a (typically) busy illustration that does a good job of confusing most students. This Cramlet™, however, lets the student isolate and examine each step in the process by clicking the button named by that step.

Plant Cell Cycle

Plant Cell Cycle

There are three parts of the Interphase — G1, S, and G2. These three represent the normal cell growth and DNA replication necessary for cell division. Mitosis consists of four stages — Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. It is in Mitosis that the internal cell division occurs, with particular activities in each of its stages. Cell division is completed during Cytokinesis, which overlaps the Telophase stage.

Students can click on each phase or stage to learn about it, with the corresponding section of the illustration highlighted to help put things in context.

Introductory biology can be a challenging course, but our Biology Cramlets™ can help make it easier. Check them out and see how easy biology can be.

Split between learning and fun,
