Interphase-stage where the is DNA growth, and replication
prophase-staye where spindle fibers start to form
metaphase-the chromosome move to the center
anaphase-chromatid of each chromosome are pulled apart towards the end poles
telophase-spindle fibers disappear, nuclear wall starts to form
cytokinesis-the 2 daughter cells become independent. the separation of the new cells involves a cleavage furrow that pinches the cell membrane
