DNA replication. The double helix is unwound and each strand acts as a template for the next strand. Bases are matched to synthesize the new partner strands. DNA replication is the process of producing two identical replicas from one original DNA molecule.
The cell cycle or cell-division cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication (replication) that produces two daughter cells.Powerpoints:

Alternation of generations: Please review the below links. The important information for this test is knowing at what stages mitosis and meiosis are happening and what they are creating (sporophytes, megaspores, microspores, or gametes)
Look up what organisms produce asexually and sexually. Know the basic way they do it. For example, some plants reproduce asexually from "runners" while they can still reproduce sexually throgh the alternation of generations. Animals are most commonly known to reproduce sexually however some reproduce through budding or parthenogenesis. I don't expect you to know the major details just the very basics.
