It can be hard to tell size from a picture too, and size is often an important factor.Yeah and pictures aren't always accurate.
Yeah, we had one test that all the stations were black and white and you couldn't distinguish anything. The supervisors told us that if we needed a better look at a specimen, we could look at the original test that the copies were made from, but when there is a limited amount of time at each station, that wasn't practical. Whenever possible, samples are always preferable.Oh, I HATE black and white and low rez pics. It's so hard to distinguish shapes.They generally don't have a size key, and coloration can be off.
Seeing as Fossils is no longer an event...How does everybody deal with pictures without size key or that are blurry? We just make a guess, but are there any good hints?
I heard Rocks and Minerals is such a better event.Seeing as Fossils is no longer an event...How does everybody deal with pictures without size key or that are blurry? We just make a guess, but are there any good hints?
Anyway, I've taken a (practice) test in black-and-white. You muddle through. The interesting thing is that neither my partner and I have (had) any sense of size. I remember at state I was really surprised that Worthenia was so small.
But really, guys... Fossils is going. Is it really worth it to mull over it this much? I love it, but shouldn't we be prepping for Rocks?
I doubt that they'd give you pictures - rocks and minerals are much more easier to come across compared to fossils.I haven't done
rocks and minerals, so i wonder if the R&M pictures are better than the fossil ones.
