Students use simulated experiments to explore ray diagrams for converging thin lenses.
Students use a simulation of a converging lens to explore the images produced by converging lenses.
They move a simulated object in front of the lens and observe the effects on the image. Data on the distance between the image and the lens and between the object and the lens are recorded.
Students graph the data and use their observations to derive the lens equation.
