SciPacks are self-directed online learning experiences for teachers to enhance their understanding of a particular scientific concept and its related pedagogical implications for student learning. Unlimited expert content help via email and a final assessment both facilitate and document teacher learning.
The Cell Division and Differentiation SciPack explores the cellular processes, including the selective expression of specific genes, which allow for the differentiation and specialization of cells. Additionally, this SciPack looks at cell division (mitosis) and the cell cycle, including the cycle for unhealthy (cancerous cells); the hierarchy between cells, tissues, organs and the organism; and the difference between specialized (differentiated) and unspecialized (undifferentiated) cells.
