# Ch 21: Matter & Light - Physics Lab Experiments: Homeschool Curriculum

The Matter and Light - Physics Lab Experiments unit of this High School Physics Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about the fundamental experiments and physics principles related to the matter and light. 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 Physics Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about light properties, diffraction and interference. There is no faster or easier way to learn about matter and light experiments. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about the elasticity of solids, water phase changes, ray diagrams and the gold foil experiment.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics 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 Matter and Light - Physics Lab Experiments unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Matter and Light - Physics Lab Experiments Unit Objectives:

• Explore Ernest Rutherford's gold foil experiment.
• See lab experiments for the elasticity of solids.
• Test the density and buoyancy of objects.
