Product Description
The Compound Microscope: An In-Depth Homework and Study Guide Assignment

This is a 7 page document (4 pages for student and 3 pages for teacher) consisting of 46 questions of varying formats. These questions cover the following topics concerning the microscope:

1. The Microscope Introduction: light microscope, electron microscope, simple microscope, compound microscope.
2. The History of the Microscope and Early Cell Studies: Zaccharias Janssen, Robert Hooke, Anton van Leeuwenhoek
3. Modern Compound Microscope: Students will label the parts of the microscope and learn the function of each part.
4. Magnification and Resolution: Definition, how to calculate total magnification
5. Rules for Using the Microscope
6. Preparation of a Wet Mount Slide
7. How to measure a specimen under both the 10x objective and the 40x objective
8. The Electron Microscope: Characteristics, transmission electron microscope, scanning electron microscope, advantages and disadvantages of each.

I use this initially as homework assignments. As I cover the material on microscopes, I assign some of the questions as homework. After a few nights of homework, the student has a completed study guide on the microscope. The questions include fill in the blank, short answer, define, compare and contrast, labeling, and estimating.

You will receive a document that is in two formats: a Word document and a pdf version. All answers are included.
