SBI3C How to Find The Size of Anything Under Our Microscopes

Use all the steps shown below when asked to find the size of a specimen under the microscope. Sometimes the quantity will be different than length (l), it could be width (w) or diameter (d). The specimen will also change depending on what you are being asked. So, instead of lparamecium like we see here, it could be dnucleus if you were being asked to find the diameter of a nucleus, for example. That said, use the same order of steps and always show ALL your work so you can get ALL of the marks or as many part marks in the event that you make an error or two.
