Using a Case-Study Article to Effectively Introduce Mitosis
Van Hoewyk, Doug
Journal of College Science Teaching, v36 n6 p12-14 May 2007
Community college students in a nonmajors biology class are introduced to mitosis by reading a case-study article that allows them to gauge how many times various parts of their bodies have been regenerated. The case-study article allows students to develop a conceptual framework of the cell cycle prior to a lecture on mitosis. (Contains 1 figure.)
