Cancer Unit Standard 2 Concept Map

Your task is to show how you understand the connections between the terms and concepts used in this unit for Cancer.  Your concept map should be a web of many paired terms, not straight lines. No two concepts maps are the same, as this is a “mind map” of how you connect the information, and no two brains work the same way.  

Keep in mind this check-list as you start creating your map:

❑ Concept map illustrates the process of mitosis including the inputs and outputs

❑ Concept map illustrates how cells are differentiated (made different from one another) and what controls this process

❑ Concept map illustrates what is produced when body cells (not sex cells) of the same type combine

❑ Vocabulary included and correctly explained with clear relationships

❑ Attention to details: spelling, organization, use of graphics and symbols to enhance understanding

❑ Provides two examples of cell differentiation with clear images to represent the process

❑ Provides an example of what is produced when cells combine and explains emergent properties through this example
