When you click Submit (at the bottom of this web page) it will save your work on the server for me. If you get a "proxy error" hit -refresh- until you get a "Thanks"

You might want to actually write your answers on paper or in Word (so you can spell check them) and then cut-and-paste into the boxes. That way, if the computer misplaces your work you can just re-paste the answers.

TAB OR USE THE MOUSE Between the fields....

Answer the questions as best you can. The boxes will expand as you type if you need more space. (Don't worry if it is a one word answer. The box size is standard.)

The ideal group size is 2. As an exception I will allow groups of 3. If you work as a group of 3 I expect better answers. 

Name(s):

You are encouraged to work in pairs

1-Last Name:   First Name:

2-Last Name:   First Name:

Your answers will have to be perfect for a group size of 3 not to cost you in the grading. No groups larger than 3 will be accepted.

3-Last Name:   First Name:


Class Period 

1 2 3 4 5 6 NA

The "form handler" software doesn't like "blanks" so, if you don't have an answer, leave the -No answer- in the box.

To help you with th assignment some diagrams and pictures are provided.

The following pictures are being provided so that you can see what the phases look like in a real slide.

1)Identify the phase in each of the "slides"

1 2 4 5 6 7 3 8

2) Using the slides below pick whole rows and identify ALL the cells in that row recording your data in a table similar to that in the Arizone Biology site.

Count at least 50 cells.

Transfer your data to the table above. 

Q-1: In which phase does a cell spend most of its time?

Q-2: Why did we use onion root tips rather than some other tissue?

Q-3: Why was it difficult to assign all the cells to specific phases?
