I've attached the notes for chapter 2, including the lesson on the steps of meiosis (with pictures!).
I've attached the Power Point template to be used for your issues presentations.   If you don't have Power point at home, I suggest teh following steps:-  Print the template so you have the instructions contained within- download "Open Office" - a free software program available online to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations aids.  you can use the presentation aid as needed. Alternately - you can plan to do all your work while at school (in class and at lunch in the library), or use Notebook software if you have it. I've also attached the rubric by which the presentation will be graded.     Happy researching everyone!  I look forward to your presentations!
