About This Quiz & Worksheet

Light moves in very particular ways, and this quiz/worksheet duo will test your knowledge of a lab that analyzes the reflection and refraction of light. In some of the questions, you will be asked to correctly identify the definitions of key terms.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In the quiz, you will be assessed on what you know about:

  • Reflection
  • Reasons why light bends and curves
  • Refraction
  • The law of reflection

Skills Practiced

Employ these important skills during your completion of the quiz/worksheet:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information about a lab about light reflection and refraction from the related lesson
  • Making connections - use your understanding of light to determine what occurs when light shines through a lower density material into one of higher density
  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve a lab experiment question of why light curves when shone through saltwater and freshwater
  • Defining key concepts - confirm that you can accurately define main terms, such as reflection and refraction
