            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.4.Introduction:
              The survival of a species depends on the ability of a living organism to produce offspring. Living things go through a life cycle involving both reproductive and developmental stages. Development follows an orderly sequence of events.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.I.LE.4.4a:
                In multicellular organisms, cell division is responsible for growth, maintenance, and repair. In some one-celled organisms, cell division is a method of asexual reproduction.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.I.LE.4.4b:
                In one type of cell division, chromosomes are duplicated and then separated into two identical and complete sets to be passed to each of the two resulting cells. In this type of cell division, the hereditary information is identical in all the cells that result.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.I.LE.4.4c:
                Another type of cell division accounts for the production of egg and sperm cells in sexually reproducing organisms. The eggs and sperm resulting from this type of cell division contain one-half of the hereditary information.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.I.LE.4.4d:
                Cancers are a result of abnormal cell division.
