Light & Matter: Vernier Supplement to OpenSciEd Unit 6.1

$0.00

Student curiosity is sparked by watching a perplexing movie involving a one-way mirror. Students use a Go Direct® Light and Color Sensor to quantify amounts of transmitted and reflected light, and 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?” 

As a companion to OpenSciEd Unit 6.1, the Vernier Supplement incorporates data-collection technology into the lessons to complement the existing curriculum. 

Light & Matter: Vernier Supplement to OpenSciEd Unit 6.1 will be available Summer 2022
