Bacterial Growth
Bacteria do not reproduce like we do –
instead of one bacterium producing
another baby bacterium, they undergo
what is called ‘binary fission’ and split into
two new bacteria altogether!
Watch the video on this page to see how
quickly they can grow:

Now try modelling this with peas yourself:
How many divisions until you have 512 bacteria? If
each division cycle takes 20 minutes how long
would it take? How many bacteria after 15
divisions?
