The Higher the Magnification - The More Detail You'll See

Magnification 40x
Magnification 1000x
Magnification 2500x

Magnification is the ability of your microscope to make small objects seem larger. As the magnification increases the area being viewed will be decrease is size but the detail of the area being viewed will improve.

Amscope microscopes come with multiple magnifications to aid you in finding the proper magnification for viewing each specimen.

Camera Connection Types

When comparing 2.0 and 3.0 there are few major differences. First the transfer rates. USB 2.0 offers transfer rates of 480 Mbps and USB 3.0 offers transfer rates of 4.8 Gbps - that's 10 times faster.

Camera Resolution

The most important factor in ensuring successful microscopic imaging is choosing the appropriate optics and camera for your application that gives you more data and higher image quality. When selecting a microscope camera, it is best to base your decision on the most important requirements for your microscopic observation.

Key Features

  • Explore Earth's composition and demonstrate the basics of topography with this unique kit
  • Acrylic observation tank with push plates can be used to shift layers of brightly colored sand, helping students to conceptualize everything from mountain formation to subduction zones
  • Also included are foam manipulatives to effectively illustrate the dynamics of faulting
  • Also includes digital content, including teacher and student guides, in-depth background information, videos, geoinformation data sets and more
  • Replacement sand available (TCTN01-SAND)

Demonstrate plate tectonic principles, plate boundary interactions and the geometry and relative motions of faulting of geologic layers using 3-D manipulative models.

Versatile kit contains a Fault Model Set of 5 manipulatives and a Tectonics Sand Layer Model. Use the Fault Model Set to demonstrate normal faulting (extension), reverse faulting compression) and horizontal slip faulting (shear). Use the Tectonics Sand Layer Model to explore orogeny -mountain building€“ of the Appalachian Mountains, including coal formation in the sedimentary Appalachian Basin and its coal seam, construct a sand layer model system mimicking a subduction zone of oceanic crust (Juan de Fuca Plate), and simulate the creation of the San
Andreas Fault. Also includes three hands-on geoinformation activities for students to work with metadata to map the continental shelf, learn about earth spot location to determine how fast tectonic plates are moving, and predict earthquakes using metadata for South Dakota.

All necessary materials to perform the demonstrations, including five different colors of sand, are included in the kit. A digital camera or video recorder (not included) is recommended for use in creating video clips that students can use for analysis.

Kit is provided with an access code to download interactive Teacher and Student Guides, videos, geoinformation data sets, and other resource information.
