Investigating Light: Refraction and Lenses (Station approach)

kit #P104-S04

Working at this station, students use both convex and concave lenses to compare images and magnification. They measure the focal length of several lenses and then figure out how to construct a simple camera. The activities in this module (and in the related P104-S01, P104-S02, and P104-S03 modules) were originally part of longer units developed at the University of Kentucky. The station approach allows you to offer a variety of concurrent activities for different student groups.

This kit was written and designed by professors at the University of Kentucky.

  • Light travels in a straight line.
  • Light refracts from lenses in a predictable fashion with predictable results.
  • Ideal companion for Kits P104-S01, P104-S02, and P104-S03.
