  3. What are the five stages of Prophase I?
    • Leptotene
    • Zygotene
    • Pachytene
    • Diplotene
    • Diakinesis
  4. Leptotene, Zygotene, Pachytene, diplotene and Diakinesis are steps in what process?
    Prophase I of Meiosis
  5. What are precursor cells to meiosis?
  6. What step in meiosis is reductionary?
    First meiosis

    • Head piece
    • Midpiece
    • Tail (Flagellum)
  10. How would you describe the movement of the sperms flagellum?
  11. What is the name of the sperm head that contains digestive enzymes for accessing the ovum?
  12. Where is the nucleus found in the sperm?
    In the head

  14. How long do sperm live in the reproductive tract?
    1-2 days
  15. What do sperm do during the 1-2 days they are in the reproductive tract?
