Science 9: Chapter 4, 5.1 and 6.1 Study Guide
Ch. 4, 5.1 and 6.1 Outcomes
B1 – Explain the process of cell division
Step 1: Use the following target symbols to assess your level of understanding:
Bullseye! I know/
understand this and am
confident with it.
Almost there. I have some knowledge of this
but am not totally confident. I could use
some further review.
Needs work. I am not
confident that I know it. I
need to work at this.
I can identify the contents of a cell and explain the function of organelles (4.1)
I can identify, explain the structure and the function of the contents of the nucleus:
chromosomes, DNA, genes and nucleolus. (4.1)
I can explain how genes code for proteins and describe the process of protein
synthesis including how the protein leaves the cell. (4.1)
I can describe the factors that may lead to changes in a cell's genetic information and
the consequences. (4.2)
I can explain the process of gene therapy and explain the pros and cons of it.
I can describe, in sequence, the stages and features of the cell cycle including mitosis
and cytokinesis. (5.1)
I can describe how cancer begins in the cells of the body. (5.1)
I can distinguish and describe the differences between meiosis and mitosis. (6.1)
Step 2: Make your own Study Review
Examine the targets above. Your studying priority should be the “Needs work” targets. Then you can focus on
the “Almost there” targets. Design a study plan that will help you meet these outcomes.
