Plane Mirror Images

The Plane Mirror Images Interactive blends a short Tutorial approach with a simulated environment in order to help learners understand how an image is formed by a plane mirror. The Interactive consists of two parts. Part 1 is titled How do light rays reflect? This part introduces the law of reflection and addresses the manner in which light reflects off a plane mirror. Part 2 is titled How do images form in plane (flat) mirrors? This part investigates the interaction between light from the object and the observer's eye. Both parts include interactive simulations embedded within a slide-like tutorial.

Users are encouraged to open the Interactive and explore. There is no need for an activity sheet or a set of directions. The Interactive uses a Check to provide confirmation that the two parts have been completed.
