Concept Checker for Optics Bench (Concave Mirrors) Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Optics Bench simulation consists of 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. While the simulation is multi-faceted, covering both mirrors and lenses, this Concept Checker focuses on the Concave Mirror aspect of the simulation. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Optics Bench simulation

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcome:
  • The student should be able to identify the characteristics (location, orientation, relative size, and type) of images produced by a concave mirrors when the object is at a specified location.
