This interactive computer program guides your biology and health professions students through the basic concepts of bright field light microscopy, developing and refining their knowledge by providing a more active role in learning. Simple, approachable, and largely qualitative, "Microscopy-Tutor[trademark]" uses three-dimensional animation to simulate a microscope with an integrated illuminator and adjustable field diaphragm. The CD-ROM's animated diagrams are more accurate than those found in most university-level texts, but are also easy-to-understand because key concepts and equations are presented visually rather than symbolically.Since using Microscopy-Tutor[trademark] feels more like operating a microscope than a computer, it's successful in presenting changes in dynamic processes that occur during alignment and use of the microscope - greatly surpassing a static series of images found in a text. Rather than explaining what happens through the use of words and pictures, the user - who learns by doing - can see what happens and better understand the implications. In some sections, two animated perspectives are synchronized, allowing the viewer to change microscope settings and simultaneously see the resulting image. This title includes interactive quizzes that test the student's knowledge and accent areas for improvement. This innovative program makes complicated ideas easier to grasp - and makes your job more rewarding! This title is Windows / Macintosh / Network Compatible.
