- A selection of applets showing multiple rays
originating from the object in front of various lenses. Students can move
the object and observe the changes impact on the image produced.
- A selection of computer generated images/animations
demonstrating various aspects from the optics unit including converging,
diverging lenses, refractive index and convex/concave reflections. Something
students could visit. There are many other science related animations on
this site including material for biology, chemistry and electricity.
- Physics in the classroom offers a virtual text book,
worked examples, clear diagrams and most importantly fill in blank and
multiple choice questions at the conclusion of each chapter that students
can complete to test their understanding. Upon completing the question sheet
students can receive instant feedback in terms of right or wrong.
- A virtual optics bench. The operator can select mirror
or lens type, focal points, the location and size of the object and rays to
help visualize the movement of light. This site would work well as a
practice and confirm study aid.
