I recently selected this animation as part of a lesson on cell division. My students will view the animation in order to gather information on each phase of mitosis. The large graphics and clear labeling will help my students make sense of the mitosis process. The animation's combination of graphics, text, and audio made the content easy to understand. The content accurately depicts mitosis in language my students will easily comprehend. The animation enhances the lesson by illustrating the individual steps involved in the complex process of cell division. Although the animation is clear and easy to understand, the graphics of prophase could be more detailed.
This animation was very user friendly. I accessed the material several times while planning the lesson and did not experience any difficulties. The graphics were clear and the audio portion was easy to understand. The pause button will help my students take notes while watching the illustration. The link from the merlot site goes to a web page with a link to the animation. This two step procedure provides easy access to the animation but may need explanation during the lesson.
