Snell's Law and Refraction
The Refraction and Snell's Law Toolkit provides teachers with standards-based resources for designing lesson plans and units that pertain to the topic of the refraction of light at the boundary between two materials. Both the conceptual/causal nature and the mathematical nature of the topic are addressed. The Toolkit is supported by Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 of the Refraction and the Ray Model of Light chapter at The Physics Classroom Tutorial.
Each toolkit can be viewed in three different ways.
Snell's Law and Refraction - HTML Version of Complete Toolkit
