Microscopes and Magnification
A key part of biology is understanding how magnification works and using instruments such as light microscopes to study the structure of organisms. This module is one to two lesson module that can also be used as focus day practical lesson. The module begins with explaining the concept of magnification and its importance in biology. It then progresses to the use of the microscope, and specifically how to calculate the magnification of images, as well as how the size of different components of the cell.
