Name: ______________________________________ Investigation: Exploring Cells, a Historical Perspective Overview: In this lab, you will explore the appearance of cells as historical figures may have seen them. Review the steps of using a microscope and focusing on high power before proceeding. 1. Robert Hooke Observed Cork Robert Hooke was the first person to see cells when he viewed a piece of cork with a microscope. What he saw, he described as “porous” and like a “honeycomb.” From his observation he decided to call the boxes he viewed CELLS because it reminded him of the rooms that monks live in. We also use the term “cell” today to describe rooms in which prisoners live. Find a prepared slide labeled “cork.” You should be able to see a pink specimen on the slide even before you look at it with the microscope. The cork was stained pink so that you could see it more clearly. Focus slide under scanning, then low, and then high power.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
