Look Around to Learn Physics
Mohammadpour, Hassan
Physics Teacher, v46 n3 p158-159 Mar 2008
I always tell my students: "Physics is all around," and "Just observe carefully to learn physics." This paper describes one of my own experiences in looking carefully at light reflection and, in particular, the difference between specular reflection and diffuse reflection. I also describe how I have adapted this experience for use with my students. During my years as a high school teacher, I have read many papers in "TPT" that describe other teachers' interesting physics-related experiences. It was those accounts that stimulated me to write this paper.
