Reflectivity of Light

Students explore the concept of reflectivity.  For this reflectivity lesson, students measure the percent reflectivity of different colored surfaces such as black paper, aluminum foil, and white paper.  Students use calculator probes and sensors to determine which surface has the lowest and highest reflectivity.  Students apply the concept of reflectivity of the surface materials toward discussing the reflectivity of a planet.
