...Kelsey J. Metzger; Joanna Yang Yowler The processes of mitosis and meiosis are oft-cited and long-standing examples of concepts that are difficult for students to learn and understand. While there are many examples in the literature of “how-to-do-it,” innovative instructional approaches for...

...Dorit Eliyahu I present an activity to help students make the connection between meiosis and genetic variation. The students model meiosis in the first phase of the activity, and by that process they produce gametes of a fictitious reptilobird species, “Chromoseratops meiosus.” Later on, they will...

...Peigao Luo The comprehension of chromosome movement during mitosis and meiosis is essential for understanding genetic transmission, but students often find this process difficult to grasp in a classroom setting. I propose a “double-spring model” that incorporates a physical demonstration and can be...

... different chromosomes of the pea genome. Genes are placed on a linkage map by how often they recombine during meiosis. The closer two genes are on a chromosome, the less frequently they will recombine, because there is less chance of a crossover occurring between them. The line on the left is chromosome...
