Mitosis takes place in all of the body cells, except for the production of gametes (making the sperm and egg). It is the division of a cell where the DNA is exactly the same in each of the daughter cells (name given to the cells produced from the original cell). Two daughter cells are formed.
Meiosis the way in which gametes are made - they contain half the DNA that they should have. When they divide, they do so by dividing once, then dividing again, so that there are four daughter cells produced, each with a random selection of the DNA.
