Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives, Light and Color: Young's Experiment

After you understand two-point source interference, the next logical step is to do Young's Experiment. Whet your appetite! Visit this simulation to see where all this is heading.

Science Reasoning Center, Light Waves: Models of Light

This interactive exercise probes the dual nature of light. The success and failure of the wave model of light and the particle model of light to explain reflection, diffraction, interference,and the photoelectric effect are explored.
