stages

prophase
prometaphase
metaphase
anaphase
telophase

2

prophase

chromosomes begin to condense and become visible in the nucleus

3

prometaphase

chromosomes shorten and thicken and condense more

spindle fibers attach to kinetochores

nuclear membrane disappears

4

metaphase

chromosomes line up in the center of the cell

5

anaphase

chromosomes split (sister chromatids go separate ways)

each sister chromatid is now considered its own chromosome

6

telophase

the chromosomes in two separate sets start to decondense

after this they will be invisible in the daughter cells

7

cytokinesis

microfilaments tighten around the cell and pinch it into 2

nuclear membranes reform in daughter cells and chromosomes decondense

in plants, after this, a cell wall still has to grow between daughter cells

8

mitosis has __ DNA replication followed by __ cell division

one, one
