The Cell Cycle

The Cell Cycle

Author: Gerald Carey

To present the main features of the Cell Cycle.

Students copy down the information on a large sheet of paper.
The main features are drawn in a circular diagram and students add key steps in their own drawings.
Hence I can go through:
* the four phases of the cycle
* what happens during mitosis
* the role of checkpoints
* the role of mitosis promoting factors
* the role of inhibitors
* cancer
in separate stages, which should result in less confusion for students.
