Syllabus Statement 1.1.S1 Use of a light microscope to investigate the structures of cells and tissues.
Label the names or parts of the microscope (tape in diagram from class).
Given the magnification of the ocular and objective lenses, calculate the total microscope magnification (use your own example).
Measure the field of view diameter of a microscope under low power (list for the microscopes we use).
Measure the field of view diameter of a microscope under medium or high power (show your work and list for the microscopes we use).
Estimate the size of a sample in the microscope field of view (give your own example).
Demonstrate how to focus the microscope on a sample (list steps).
Demonstrate how to make a temporary “wet mount” on a microscope slide (list steps).
Syllabus Statement 1.1.S2 Drawing cell structures as seen with a light microscope.
Demonstrate how to draw cell structures seen with a microscope using sharp, carefully joined lines and straight edge lines for labels.
(Do your own lab drawing with labels here as an example) Syllabus Statement 1.1.S3 Calculation of the magnification of drawings and the actual size of structures and ultrastructures shown in drawings or micrographs.
State why the magnification of a drawing or micrograph is not the same as the magnification of the microscope.
Use a formula to calculate the magnification of a micrograph or drawing.
If given the magnification of a micrograph or drawing, use a formula to calculate the actual size of a specimen.s
Syllabus Statement 1.2.U4 Electron Microscopes have a much higher resolution than light microscopes.
Compare the maximum resolutions of a light microscope with those of an electron microscope.
List three example structures that are visible with electron microscopes but not with the light microscope.
Syllabus Statement 1.2.NOS1 Developments in scientific research follows improvements in apparatus- the invention of the electron microscopes led to greater understanding of cell structure.
With reference to a specific example, explain how an improvement in apparatus allowed for greater understanding of cell structure.
