Law of Reflection

Reflection seems simple to understand, but without a complete understanding, pupils struggle with ray diagrams, specular versus diffuse reflection, total internal reflection, and image formation. An engaging interactive provides three levels of practice demonstrating mastery of the Law of Reflection. Immediate feedback, additional explanations, and progressive mastery increase participant confidence.
