WORDS/DEFINITIONS TO KNOW:
Mitosis: Process of Asexual Production.
Cell: What every living thing is made up of.

Meiosis: Process of Sexual Reproduction.
Nucleus: Location where Mitosis and Meiosis occur.
Chromosome: A pair of Chromatids; contains DNA.
Chromatids: (See Chromosome)
Interphase: Process of DNA replication.
Prophase: Process of separating duplicated genetic material into 2 or 4 daughter cells
Metaphase: Stage in Mitosis/Meiosis when the Chromosomes line up in the middle.
Anaphase: The phase in Mitosis/Meiosis when the Chromosomes are pulled apart into two separate Chromatids
WORDS/DEFINITIONS TO KNOW CNTD:
Telophase: The process in which the Chromatids or Chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and 2 new Nuclei are formed.
Cytokinesis: Process of when the 2 new cells separate.
DNA: A self-replicating material that is present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.
Sperm: The male reproductive cell, or gamete, in anisogamous forms of sexual reproduction. 
Egg: The female reproductive cell, or gamete.
Prophase 2: (See Prophase)
Metaphase 2: (See Metaphase)
Anaphase 2: (See Anaphase)
Telophase 2: (See Telophase)
Crossing Over: The exchange of genes between homologous chromosomes, resulting in a mixture of parental characteristics in offspring.
Nuclei: Plural Nucleus
