The Importance of Anatomy

Anatomy is the science of the body and how its systems are connected. I believe anatomy is a key point in biology because of its importance to medical science. Anatomy is the basis of physiology; the science of how the body functions. Without this, we wouldn't have...

The Importance of Understanding Mitosis

Mitosis I chose the order of Mitosis as my key learning piece, specifically how to remember the order. Mitosis is the base of all biology, everything alive has cells, and when studying and learning about biology knowing how the cells divide is a key part. Everything...

Explanation of Mitosis/Cell Division

Culminating Unit 2  Biology: Mitosis and Cell Division    Explanation:  I chose Mitosis and Cell Division as my enduring learning idea because it is important to all living things. The Cell Division helps with the growth of organisms and body/organs systems as well as...
