Published on 07/18/2011

Activity Overview

In this Science Nspired module, students will explore concave and convex lenses through simulations, a data-collection lab, formative assessments and summative assessments. This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishViewTM document.

About the Lesson

In this module, students will observe and explain how lenses help in optics (telescopes, microscopes or glasses) They will explore convex, concave and flat lenses explaining and then determine the relationship between image and object. They will compare and contrast lenses to mirrors. They will use different lenses measuring focal points and calculating Snell's Law. Students will also explore and experiment with Refraction of light through different mediums.
