Microscope Activity

BiologyThe following two links contain information on how to properly use a microscope. This microscope activity is a "virtual" activity. This means all work will be done on the computer instead of on a real microscope.

a). Watch the video on using a compound microscope at this website. (Click on '7 minute video')

b). Use the virtual microscope to practice centering your specimen and adjusting controls to view your specimen. Read the directions on how to use the virtual scope then view all four specimens. Ask me for help if you have trouble with this site. Click on 'The virtual scope'.

Here is another site with some cool pictures of things that have been magnified: http://education.denniskunkel.com/Zoomify-1.php
