  1. Hi Mrs. Bergman,
    I’m in your MH3 class, but i was wondering if Meiosis was going to be on the test at all? We kind of had an introduction to it, but i was still wondering.

    • Meiosis, specifically, will not be on your test. That said, I would have a good grasp on mitosis (which definitely will be) and how the cells produced in mitosis differ from those produced in meiosis in general terms.
