Description:

This is a lesson plan appropriate for high school and middle school on the topic of light reflection from a mirror surface. Students predict where two people must stand so each can see the other's reflection in the mirror. They then measure the angles of incidence and reflection based upon the actual image reflection. The activity requires only a mirror, paper, and masking tape for set-up. It also contains a Java simulation on angles of reflection. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. SEE RELATED ITEMS on this page for a link to the full index.
