Cell Division: Mitosis and Meiosis Homework Assignments

This is a set of three different homework assignments on cell division, mitosis and meiosis. I most often use these as homework assignments to help the students review the concepts we went over in class, but each of these would also make a great quiz. Each assignment is a 2 page worksheet for the student. After completing these worksheets as homework assignments, students have great study guides for a unit test.

PLEASE NOTE: This product is also sold in a bundled package which can be viewed here: Mitosis and Meiosis Complete Unit Plan

The questions are of varying types and varying difficulty levels. There are short answer, compare/contrast, fill in the blank, multiple choice, and true/false questions on each worksheet.

All answers are included.
