I'm trying to explain how cell size affects mitosis, but am at a loss as for what would be a proper answer. Any help would be appreciated!

It would also be helpful if anyone knows any websites which offers this information.

Do you mean that a cell divides when it reaches a maximum size? That is because of the volume:surface area ratio.
