Students use simulated experiments to explore ray diagrams for converging and diverging thin lenses.
Students investigate the characteristics of converging and diverging lenses.
First, students study simulations of diverging and converging lenses to determine the relationship between curvature and focal point.
Next, students use simulations to explore the relationship between image distance and object distance for converging and diverging lenses.
Finally, students use simulations to derive the equation for the magnification of a lens. Again, they study both converging and diverging lenses.
