Using a Microscope [Student Booklet and Teacher's Guide].
Australian Science Education Project, Toorak, Victoria.
The Australian Science Education Project is producing material designed for use in grades 7-10 of Australian schools. This is the first trial version of a unit providing instruction in microscopy. Illustrations of each step in setting up, focusing, preparation of mounts, microscopic measurement, and cleaning and packing the microscope are included in the students' booklet. The accompanying teacher's guide suggests precautions to follow in classes using microscopes, illustrates variations in microscope structure likely to be found in brands in use, and suggests some approaches to the use of this unit. The unit is not intended to introduce optical theory, but is a service unit to provide students with additional skills for use in investigative laboratories. (AL)
