Colour Mathematics: With Graphs and Numbers
LoPresto, Michael C.
Physics Education, v44 n4 p363-367 Jul 2009
The different combinations involved in additive and subtractive colour mixing can often be difficult for students to remember. Using transmission graphs for filters of the primary colours and a numerical scheme to write out the relationships are good exercises in analytical thinking that can help students recall the combinations rather than just attempting to memorize them. (Contains 1 footnote, 2 tables, and 4 figures.)
