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: Who Can See Who?

The Physics Interactives is our simulation section.This section provides a playful way to learn, Alter a variable, experiment with a system, and interact with the simulation in order to find out how nature works. While our Who Can See Who? activity is unrelated to this Six-Foot Person Problem, it does provide another useful application of ray diagramming.


Minds On Physics, Reflection and Mirrors module, Mission RM3

A Minds On Physics mission is an interactive questioning module that will make you read carefully, think deeply, and know your concepts. None of this is popular. All of it works. Give Mission RM3 a try in order to sharpen your understanding of ray tracing. 

Tutorial on Reflection and the Ray Model of Light, Lesson 2

When you need to quickly review a topic and/or freshen up on a concept, the Tutorial section of our website is your go-to place.  Our page on What Portion of a Mirror is Required to View an Image? addresses the 6-foot person problem.
