Providing an overview of God's world through a microscope, this book gives a brief history of microscopes before diving into seeing the world through one. Starting with their simple origins in the 13th century as magnifying glasses and exploring some of the many modern varieties of imaging, we explore how they are used and some of what may be seen through one now.
- Filled with full-color microscopic images of varied animals, insects, plants and fungi, and microorganisms, as well as detailed information for using the modern microscope in the classroom.
- Discusses examples of stained and unstained slide samples, brightfield, darkfield, and phase contrast microscopy.
- Includes practical tips about the use of the microscope and labels many of the slide images for easier identification of microscopic structures.
Though this is an independent text that can be used with any biology study, it also serves as a companion book in the Master's Class Biology: The Study of Life From a Christian Worldview high school course available from Master Books®. Those who purchase this book would not have to purchase a microscope in order to fulfill the requirements.
