# Ch 14: Light in Physical Science: Homeschool Curriculum

The Light in Physical Science unit of this High School Physical Science Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about forms of light in science. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Physical Science Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about forms of light in science. There is no faster or easier way to learn about light in physical science. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about light spectrum, resonance, diffraction, white light and electromagnetic waves. .
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physical science curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Light in Physical Science unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Light in Physical Science Unit Objectives:

• Understand the spectrum, origin and regularity of color.
• Define the types of light reflection and how reflection interacts with curved surfaces.
• Learn how resonance effects wave transmissions.
• Discover how opaque and transparent materials are spread through electromagnetic waves.
• Find out what white light is and how color is perceived.
• Compare dispersion and refraction.
• Understand the index of refraction and Snell's Law.
• Review diffraction and its relationship to wave length.
• Evaluate the difference between destructive and constructive interference.
• Understand the Doppler Effect and how it's applied.
• Identify the behaviors of wave-particle duality.
