Nuffield Physics: Optical Instruments and Ray Diagrams
This Nuffield Physics booklet was intended to accompany the work on Optics in Year III of the Nuffield Physics course. The booklet was intended as a companion to the ray-streaks experiments.
The first section of the booklet, entitled 'Seeing', covers briefly a suggested approach to teaching about lenses. The second section suggests a sequence of experiments to be performed using a ray-streaks kit. The final section of the booklet is concerned solely with drawing ray diagrams and gives full instructions to those who want to learn how to draw these diagrams.
