Meiosis Explored

Lab (Tutorial): Meiosis Explored

Meiosis Explored offers a refreshing new approach to teach this fascinating and fundamental (but challenging to learn!) process. Using engaging simulated experiments, puzzles, dozens of instant-feedback questions, and illuminating animations and microscopy images, Meiosis Explored investigates the how and why of meiosis rather than focusing on memorization of stages and terminology. This tutorial uses an inquiry-driven, self-directed approach that guides students through the events that take place in meiosis and elucidates why they occur in a particular order. One section makes connections with genetics, focusing on how meiosis produces variation in offspring. Another section focuses on disorders that arise from meiotic errors. The tutorial helps students actually understand the differences and similarities between meiosis and mitosis (and works well with the accompanying Mitosis Explored tutorial).
