Title In/Post-Class Activity, Bending Light, Prisms, PhET
Description This is a 60 to 90 min. worksheet related to the concept of refraction and total internal reflection with simulations activities. Students can observe, examine, explore and connect the simulations to the concepts and would have a better understanding of the behaviour of the light rays in prisms with different shapes.
