Cell division and cancer

This interactive learning resource provides an overview of cell, cell division, mitosis, meiosis, chromosomes and cancer (causes and treatments). It includes images, animations, a glossary and self-assessments. There are seven learning units and a quiz. it was developed by the Association for Science Education. Although the targeted audience for the learning materials is kindergarten to grade 12, it could be used as a teaching tool for patients and families. It also may be useful as a remediation resource for pre-professional healthcare students - since they often find the concept of cancer difficult to understand.
