Class, today we're going to learn about mitosis and meiosis!
Meiosis is a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell.
Mitosis is a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.
This is what daughter cells look like after going through cytokinesis.
A big difference between the two is that mitosis is asexual reproduction and meiosis is sexual reproduction. In mitosis, the daughter cells are identical to the parent cell. In meiosis, the daughter cells are not exactly the same.
Meiosis is important to life because it is the reason why people exist. Without meiosis, life on earth would be nonexistent. Specifically, meiosis creates sex cells. These sex cells create animals.
