Zoom Zoom: Magnification

by: M. Gail Jones, Amy R. Taylor, and Michael R. Falvo

As science extends into the very large and the very small ends of the scale, the images of objects and materials lose recognizable contexts and can be very complex. New advances in microscopes and telescopes allow us to zoom in on very tiny and very distant objects and see amazing new worlds. This investigation involves students in thinking about the changes in scale that take place as we zoom in on very small and very large objects.
