All cells are referred to using the textbook image and counting along the top of the image from the left. Prophase: Chromosomes begin to condense; nuclear envelope begins to disappear; spindle starts to form; 6th cell down in 9th column of cells Prometaphase: Chromosomes are moving to the center of the cell pulled by a complete spindle; Top cell in 8th column of cells Metaphase: Chromosomes are lined up in the center of the cell; 2nd cell down in the 3rd column of cells Anaphase: Chromosomes are separating to the two poles; 6th cell down in 10th column of cells Telophase: Steps of prophase reverse; 5th cell down in 12th column of cells
Work Step by Step
To get this answer, see the diagrams of the stages of mitosis and their descriptions in the chapter. Scan across the image, paying the most attention to the appearance of the chromosomes. Tell prophase from telophase based on one or two nuclei being present within the original (thicker, outer) cell walls.
