Student Exploration: MeiosisAdapted from an Explore Learning activityUse the Meiosis Gizmo simulation assigned to the class. Record answers on the document and submit throughD2L.Vocabulary:anaphase, chromosome, crossover, cytokinesis, diploid, DNA, dominant, gamete, genotype, germ cell, haploid, homologous chromosomes, interphase, meiosis, metaphase, mitosis, ovum, phenotype, prophase, recessive, sister chromatid, sperm cell, telophase, zygote Prior Knowledge Questions: BEFORE using the Gizmo1.During mitosis, a single cell divides to produce two daughter cells. What must happen in the original cell so that each of the daughter cells has a complete set of chromosomes?2.During sexual reproduction, two sex cells fuse to create a fertilized cell with a complete set of chromosomes. What must be true about the number of chromosomes in each sex cell? Introducing Meiosis: use the STEPS tab Meiosis is a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells with half as many chromosomes as the parent cell. These daughter cells mature into gametes, or sex cells. In the MeiosisGizmo, you will learn the steps in meiosis and experiment to produce customized sex cells and offspring. 1.Choose male or female, then click on the DNAin the nucleus of the cell. Describe what happens.
