Cell Cycle in Google Classroom

Cell Cycle

Most cells in your body get old and are recycled or are lost. This means you have to make new ones. The process of cells dividing to make 2 daughter cells is called mitosis. This happens continually and at different rates depending on the type of cell. Some cells, like your brain cells, do not make it through the cell cycle once in your lifetime. That’s why when you destroy them (drugs are bad) they are gone forever.
Do 5.1 power point and 5.1 power notes (scroll to second page).
