OPTICS AND VISION
AP Physics 2 is a new course developed by the College Board to cover topics like Optics which are usually taught during second semester college physics classes. Since this course is designed to be more heavily inquiry- and lab-based than traditional AP physics courses, it required new equipment to be bought for the science department.
Mrs. Madani was able to use Foundation funds to purchase two lasers and an eye model. Our AP physics students participated in labs to examine lens diffraction and learn about the physics behind vision, using a Vision Model Simulator.
Having optical benches also allowed the 9H Physics class to learn about real world applications of the optics topics of refraction and reflection.
