Buyer Comments: "I will be using this when I teach my heat, light and sound unit. Light and sound are not my strengths. I bought Fergy's astronomy unit and my students loved it. I look forward to using this unit as well. Thanks!"

"My students are enjoying this unit very much. There is a great deal of material presented in a way that it captures the students' attention. Terrific!"

"Excellent resource; will save me so much time!"

"Love this product, it has saved me a lot of time preparing for my year 9 energy lessons. Thank you"

"I wish you had more stuff that worked for me! I loved this unit!!"

Lessons Include:
Lesson 1 - Light
Lesson 2 - Lasers, Absorption and Transmission
Lesson 3 - The Production of Light
Lesson 4 - Ray Diagrams, Reflections and Plane Mirrors
Lesson 5 - Reflection in Curved Mirrors
Lesson 6 - Refraction Day 1
Lesson 7 - Refraction Day 2
Lesson 8 - Lenses and Focal Point
Lesson 7a - Snell's Law Lesson, Worksheet and Lab
Lesson 9 - Lenses - Ray Diagrams
Lesson 10 - Thin Lens Equation and Magnification
Lesson 11 - The Eye

Each lesson has a student and teacher version. The student version contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
