Nature's Wonders: Does Light Move Like a Wave or Particle?
In class, we’ll uncover the mystery of light by discovering how the sun creates it, understanding the science behind electric and magnetic interaction, and identifying how this phenomenon of physics moves in air. (CEFR C1,C2)
Light shines through our atmosphere from the sun. It warms us and helps plants grow. But, what is it? How does it move through the air? In this one-time class we will be looking at these two questions and others. We’ll try to understand how light behaves - does it travel like a wave in the Pacific ocean or like a bouncing ball. We will explore what electromagnetism is, how electromagnetic radiation was discovered, and how the sun creates light. We’ll discover: ❈ What is electromagnetic...
After completing this class each learner will be able to: ❈ Identify electromagnetic radiation ❈ Summarize history on the discovery of electromagnetic radiation ❈ Describe how the sun creates light ❈ Describe how light behaves
I hold a BS degree which gives me a solid foundation in the sciences. I also have homeschooled my three children, and during their high school years we focused on the subjects of earth and physical sciences.
