I don't understand a question



A student was using a microscope with a 10x eyepiece and 10x and 40x objective lenses. He viewed the edge of a metric ruler under
low power and observed the following field of vision.
5) What is the diameter of the low-power field of vision in micrometers?
1) 1,000 mm 2) 1 mm 3) 2 mm 4) 2,000 mm

the pic showed 3 dashes. one on each side and one in the middle. Does anyone have a link to where i can learn how to do this?

This event is a wide range of topics. If you are new to the event, read this thread, do some of the practice tests, and look at the training handout. Learn about lab procedures, and read some biology textbooks, as they have the most pertinent info. Another pattern I saw from doing this event was that Ecology popped up a lot, so get to know about food chains, ecosystems, and biomes. Cell theory, cell structure, and genetics are important, along with lab equipment, and some environmental and plant sciences. In general, this is a very vague event which is not limited to biology alone, so study up on as many topics as you can.

Basically, if u read through the coach's workbook and do a couple of practice tests u'll do ok.
It's basic high-school level biology and the ability to work in a lab setting.
Last Year's Events:
Envi. Chem., Anatomy, Road Scholars, Experimental Design
This Year's Events:
SCB, Anatomy, Bio-Process, Ecology, Junkyard Challenge

I'm back, this time as a vetran of a year of BPL. People say it's boring, but I like it. The first thimg you should do is take practice tests. Seriously, before studying at all. It lets you know what all you should study, because "the process of science" is just a little broad. Make a list of everything you didn't know, then start studying obsesivly. Genetics is huge. Punnet squares and pedigrees are on every single test, as well as dicotomis keys. Know everything about microscopes. Have good notes. They'll help you so much, but don't rely on them too much. There's always something the proctors will think of that you didn't. Darn proctors.
I've always wanted my last words to be "Oh! What does this button do?"
