Let there be light (and sound)!
Year 6 have started a new topic in science on light and sound. We have discussed what light is, and how it behaves. We have investigated with quite a few of our maths skills, looking at angles of incidence and reflection measured against the ‘normal’, which is simply a line perpendicular to the mirror.
Depending on the torch, the spread of the light affected our results, but with the sharper LED torches we could see the pattern in the angles fairly easily, using polar graph paper to keep track of the angles involved. Enlightening!
