Mitosis: An interactive learning experience
How do cells divide to grow new hair, repair your skin, or strengthen your bones? Mitosis walks you through the process of cell division, and explains everything that happens along the way. You'll usher cells through mitosis with your fingers, learning about what happens in each phase of the process. You can also look at images of actual cells dividing under a microscope and see the actual structures you've studied.
Mitosis includes the following features:
* Interactive exploration of mitosis
* Actual photographs of cells from light microscopes
* Video content (while connected to the Internet)
* "Read and listen" text and audio that explains mitosis
* Interactive quiz to test your knowledge of mitosis
* Comprehensive glossary of relevant terms
* Access to additional resources for understanding mitosis
You can provide feedback to our team by visiting our website at www.mitosisapp.com. We'd love to know how we can make the interactive learning process even more engaging.
What's New in Version 1.1
* Read and Listen text display now follows along with the audio
* Improved slideshows
* iPod audio now temporarily lowers in volume when Mitosis audio plays
Nice Quiz and "Explore" Section, But Same Information as Textbook
The most helpful part of the Mitosis app was the "Explore" section, where information about each step was on the screen and spoken aloud. One has to drag around different animated parts of the cell in order to advance to the next step. The information was clear and concise. However, it was slightly confusing because the app inserted an extra step, prometaphase, into mitosis that is not mentioned in the biology textbook. Also, the little animation where you have to drag around the parts of the cell was sometimes difficult or slightly frustrating, like in the step metaphase.
The quiz was good, but it only had ten questions. It would be more helpful to have a longer quiz with more questions.
Overall, this app was cleanly formatted but it mostly had the same information as the textbook did, and it could have used a longer quiz. As a study tool for mitosis, it certainly does its job.
SHR BIOLOGY BDAY
Very resourceful compilation of detailed and exact information. The somewhat interactive "Explore" under the "Tutor" section was not exactly entertaining but nonetheless very informative. The other two "Tutor" options were nice: the brief outline/summary and a small quiz that could have been more stimulating and challenging. Again, great detail but even more questions would have been great. The "Library" was my favorite part. It was very educational, high quality resolution images and videos, additional resources, and a convenient glossary made downloading this app. worthwhile.
Best app I have
This app Is amazing. From the pictures to images, it has everything you can imagine learning about mitosis. It's great for studying and just for learning for fun! This is the greatest app on the app store.
This app is so cool! I was kind of surprised, because it's all about science and such, but it really helps me with the whole idea of mitosis. It is really going to help me study. I just wish it had stuff for all the other science things we need, I mean I will only be able to really use this for one chapter. Wish it had this for other chapters.
