  • Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.

About the Pedagogy

  • Visualization is rich with terminology, which will need unpacking with students to ensure understanding of connections.
  • Can be used in sections rather than whole diagram.

Technical Details/Ease of Use

  • Can view full size image online, expand a section with magnifier, or can download print-quality version.
