This is a pretty cool resource. I like the fact that the video is of good quality. this makes it easier to see what is going on. I think I would use this to give the students a better idea of the process. I can explain it to the students all day, but this gives them a better idea of what the process really looks like.

This short animation of is fun to look at, but disappointing as a teaching resource. The names of mitosis stages appear, but none of the cell substructures are labeled. There is no narration.

Used in course? Yes

In growth cells divide by mitosis. Mitosis is the way in which any cell,plant or animal,divides when an organism is growing ,repairing a damaged part of a body.

This video provides a great visual of what's going on in the cell. However, the speed of the presentation and the way it zooms in on different organelles makes me think that this is best saved for after a few preliminary lessons on Mitosis so the students can see what they learned in action.

Help! The site is amazing, but I was unable to find a search to find the mitosis 3d animation. Can anyone assist? Thanks Marianna

By far the best mitosis animation I've seen. I can't wait to use this in the classroom. It'll really help students visualize the process.

I wish my teachers had showed us this video when I was in science. It is excellent at showing what happens during the different stages of mitosis.

An excellent illustration of what happens at the cellular level. Can be especially helpful for ELL students who may have difficult with a standard text.

Beautiful, three dimensional view of cell division. Great way to show students an alternative view of mitosis, rather than staring a 2-D page in a book.
