Abstract

In order to grasp many of the concepts associated with micro and nano-size devices, one needs to understand scale and the size of objects associated with different scales.  This learning module introduces various concepts associated with scale, and a comparison of the macro, micro, and nano-scales.  Activities provide the opportunity to further explore the macro, micro and nano scales and their associations with micro and nanotechnology. 

This learning module consists of the following.

  • Pre-test:  Knowledge Probe
  • Reading:  Comparison of Scale - Macro, Micro, Nano
  • Presentation:  Comparison of Scale - Macro, Micro, Nano (pdf)
  • Presentation:  Introduction to Cut-To-Size Activity (ppsm)
  • Activity:  Cut-To-Size
  • Activity:  Scale of Biomolecules
  • Activity: Zoom In/Zoom Out
  • Assessment

Instructor materials for this learning module are available here.
