A. Parts of a Compound Microscope

Your goal in this section is to learn the names of all of the parts of the microscope.

The Left-Hand Microscope:
You can click on an individual part of the microscope on the left-hand image and then identify it by selecting from the table of choices that will appear below.

The Right-Hand Microscope:
This is another virtual microscope that you can use to get a better look at the individual parts by magnifying, rotating and moving the microscope.

Be sure that you can correctly identify all of the parts before proceeding to the next section.
