Mitosis Flip Book Requirements

About the Mitosis Flip Book

Project must be FINISHED when you enter the room

(Teacher will not provide staplers, glue, tape, markers, etc. for "last minute" fixes.)

Work you submit must be your own - Any plagiarized material, from published or unpublished sources, will earn a score of ZERO.

This project should allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the process of mitosis.

YOU have to make it!  Make it well!  If you want a good grade, do everything on the list below.

 General Requirements

  • 20 pages minimum—number the pages!
  • Pages are bound so book doesn’t fall apart - materials will not be provided to do this on Monday!
  • Pictures of cell(s) are on each page
  • Must show gradual changes between IPMAT
  • Must “flip” like a cartoon book and give illusion of movement
  • Neat all around
  • Must start with 1 cell and end with 2 daughter cells
  • Must be hand-drawn
  • Must have labels!!

 Specific pages that must be included for grading:

  •  A cover page with title and name
  • “Interphase” pages – at least one of them must have a title and key parts/steps labeled
  • “Prophase” pages – at least one of them must have a title and key parts/steps labeled
  • “Metaphase”pages – at least one of them must have a title and key parts/steps labeled
  • “Anaphase” pages – at least one of them must have a title and key parts/steps labeled
  • “Telophase” pages – at least one of them must have a title and key parts/steps labeled

Note:  It is not necessary to identify every single page as prophase, metaphase, anaphase or telophase since in a real cell they gradually change into the next phase. However, at least one page from each phase must be named and have correctly labeled key parts/steps!  RememberPages between phases each must show gradual changes!!

Thought Question: Which part of PMAT should have the most pages…?  Answer question:  Which part of PMAT is the longest?
