The meiosis unit study should be attempted AFTER your student has completed the unit on mitosis as there is background information, terms, and exercises that must be well understood before jumping into meiosis.  Meiosis covers new terminology specific for the germ cell line, gives a nice comparison break down of both mitosis and meiosis, explains the defining characteristics of each phase, and prepares them for their study of DNA replication, transcription, and translation - called the central dogma of molecular biology.
