Light & Matter: Vernier Supplement to OpenSciEd Unit 6.1
This free e-book incorporates data-collection technology into the first lesson of OpenSciEd Unit 6.1, which is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), to help middle school students gain a deeper understanding of the initial scientific concepts being taught and to motivate their learning throughout the remainder of the unit. Specifically, students use a Go Direct® Light and Color Sensor to quantify amounts of transmitted and reflected light, then compare the sensor readings with what they perceive with their own senses. Using various models, students develop an understanding of two of the ways light interacts with matter and answer the question, “How can something act like a mirror and a window at the same time?”
