The Plane Mirrors Toolkit provides teachers with standards-based resources for designing lesson plans and units that pertain to such topics as reflection of light by plane mirrors, formation of images by plane mirrors, characteristics of images formed by planes mirrors, and the analysis of situations involving multiple plane mirrors (e.g., parallel mirrors, right-angle mirrors; adjustable angle mirrors). The Toolkit is supported by Lessons 1 and 2 of the Reflection and the Ray Model of Light chapter at The Physics Classroom Tutorial.
Each toolkit can be viewed in three different ways.

The HTML version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions and links to their location on the web. The complete toolkit also includes learning objectives and references the pertinent standards addressed by the resources.
Plane Mirrors - PDF Version of Complete Toolkit
The PDF version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions in a printer-friendly format. Learning objectives and relevant standards are also included in the PDF Version of the complete toolkit.
Plane Mirrors - Toolkit To Go
The Toolkit To Go is a 2-page PDF document that provides an abbreviated version of the complete toolkit. It contains as much information as could fit on two pages. Toolkits to Go can be photo-copied back-to-back, hole-punched, and filed in a teacher's folder or three-ring binder for future reference.
