–Standard 2: Biochemistry Links–1. Molecular Expressions: http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/This website features acclaimed photo galleries that explore the fascinating world of optical microscopy. I enjoy the “Power of Tens” applet. It soars through space starting at 10 million light years away from the Milky Way down through to a single proton in Florida in decreasing powers of ten (orders of magnitude), exploring the use of exponential notation to understand and compare the relative size of things in our world and the universe. It can help you review the levels of biological organization.2.
