  1. Addison S. Tiffany T. Connor M. Jacob M. Ethan N. says:

    First, the chromosomes divide into eight chromatids, then move to four “corners” of the cell. Then the cell divides into four daughter cells, each with two chromatids.

    • Alea B, Zoe L, John F, Lauren H says:

      This is a cool idea. Rather than staying in one cell during step two of the meiosis process, we hypothesized that the cell divided into two separate cells, and then went through a second division to get to the haploid cell.

    This is our hypothesis!

    • Liz M, Julia T, Ben H, Carson K says:

      During the cell cycle, the cell gets a signal to let it know when to spilt. So after the cell splits into two daughter cells, what would signal those two daughter cells to split?

    • Addison S. Tiffany T. Connor M. Jacob M. Ethan N. says:

      Overall, your hypothesis over the meiosis process is very good, but we have a couple questions. Is it necessary to split into to cells, and THEN into four? Or would it be more efficient to split into four cells at once? Also, how would the chromosomes be split up into chromatids?

  3. Liz M, Julia T, Ben H, Carson K says:

    Hypothesis: If a cell undergoes meiosis,then the chromosomes line up in the center of the cell, similar to anaphase,and are separated into four new haploid cells.

    This is our hypothesis for meiosis.

      How does it go from the second phase to the third phase? Excellent diagram. Very enlightening!

    Here is our Hypothesis.
