There's More to Light than Meets the Eye
McCann, Florence; Pedersen, Jon; Falsarella, Carell; McCann, Patrick
Science Scope, v31 n6 p33-39 Feb 2008
This investigation was part of a multi-lesson unit that gave students direct experience using increasingly sophisticated tools to make more detailed observations and measurements of light. Through these lessons, students experienced a key aspect of the nature of science (McComas 2004), namely how scientists constantly refine and modify theories as they make more exact measurements using precise instruments. (Contains 4 figures and 5 resources.)
