Unformatted text preview: made it easier to observe. In subsequent portions we would take various samples of cells and observe them under a microscope. We would observe “zoomed” in images on objects at higher magnifications, while lower magnifications allowed for a greater width of field. We also observed that stains helped us view the organisms while unstained samples, such as pond water, were more difficult to observe, with less detail. The lab met the purpose by: allowing us to practice proper microscopy technique and generally how to navigate around a microscope, viewing different kinds of organisms at different levels of magnification (we could not see certain organisms at different levels of magnification), and we also learned proper techniques on staining and how to create a proper wet mount, one free of bubbles....
