Microscopes & Magnification



This video focuses on lots of tricky math skills that could possibly come up in both biology papers AND it covers the Core Practical to ‘Investigate biological specimens using microscopes including magnification calculations’. This video should be watched in conjunction with the ‘Microscope Drawing & Measuring Cell Size’ video which will cover the final aspect of the Core Practical, which is to include ‘labelled scientific drawings from observations’.
