Ch 5: Cell Division & the Cell Cycle - Middle School Life Science: Homeschool Curriculum

About This Chapter

The cell division and the cell cycle unit of this Middle School Life Science Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about how cells divide. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our Middle School Life Science Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about the process cells take in their natural cell division sequence. There is no faster or easier way to learn about cell division and the cell cycle. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn asexuality, meiosis, gene inheritance, sexual reproduction and mitosis.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a life science curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
  • Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

  • Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
  • Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
  • Short quizzes and a cell division and the cell cycle unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Cell Division and the Cell Cycle Unit Objectives:

  • Compare the reproduction process between asexual and sexual organisms.
  • Study the types of asexual reproduction.
  • Get an understanding of the inheritance of genes during sexual reproduction.
  • Review what mitosis is and its stages and functions.
  • Explore the process of meiosis and its results.
