list the stages of meiosis in order
interphase
prophase
metaphase I
anaphase I
telaphase I
metaphase II
anaphase II
telaphase II
what is the difference between metaphase I and metaphase II
metaphase I: chromasomes line up as homologous pairs along the equator

metaphase II: in both daughter cells, single chromasomes line up in a single row along the equator
how many functional cells does male meiosis produce
four
what do we call the end product of male meiosis
sperm
how many functional cells does female meiosis produce
one
what do we call the functional cell in female meiosis
egg/ovum
what do we cell the non functional cells in female meiosis
polar bodies
how many non functional cells are formed by the females
three
why does the egg need so much cytoplasm
to give the egg cell energy for its long journey
what is the main difference between male and female meiosis
male meiosis produces four (functional) cells, whereas, female meiosis produces only one (functional) cell
what is the "N" number for:
a) interphase
b) prophase
c) telophase I
d) telophase II
a) I-46
b) P-92
c) T1-46
d) T2-23
at which stage of meiosis do chromosomes double
prophase
at which stage of meiosis does the original cell divide into two cells
telaphase I
at which stage of meiosis do chromosomes split into chromatids
anaphase II
at which stage of meiosis do homologus chromosomes line up paired in the middle
metaphase I
at which stage of meiosis do single chromosomes line up in the middle
metaphase II
at which stage of meiosis do the cells divide to form four cells
telaphase II
at which stage of meiosis do the homologous chromosomes split - one to each side
anaphase I
