Cell Size and Scale Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny.

Home Improvement Ideas, Photos and Answers Clear ornaments don't seem very exciting but with a little imagination and a few supplies they can go form ordinary to extraordinary. I used a few boxes to create a really cool marquee sign! I just painted on my letters and decided where I wanted my bulbs to go.

I hot glued on the clear ornament bulbs and replaced the white lights in the 'O' with red. You know, Rudolph's nose and all.

Learn Science at Scitable As previously mentioned, a cell's cytoplasm is home to numerous functional and structural elements. These elements exist in the form of molecules and organelles — picture them as the tools, appliances, and inner rooms of the cell. Major classes of intracellular organic molecules include nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, all of which are essential to the cell's functions. Nucleic acids are the molecules that contain and help express a cell's genetic code. There are two major classes of nucleic acids: deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA).

Diversity "Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another's uniqueness." - Ola Joseph "United we stand, divided we fall." - Aesop (620 -560 B.C.) 10 Best Tools for Teachers and Students to Use in 2014 All teachers have a goal to establish clear, friendly, but authoritative communication with students and their parents.
