Reflection: Coherence The Nature of Light: Just a Wave? - Section 1: Demonstration: Magnetic Field Induces Current


The number and variety of electromagnetic phenomenon - and their related standards - has been a challenge for me as I've designed this unit. I think I have several good pieces in place but am worried that it won't cohere for students and can become a jumbled mess. In addition, for the first time this year, I am worried about timing and my ability to do justice to each standard. Below are some thoughts along those lines, with an explicit look at the variety of electromagnetic-related standards.

The Nature of Light: Just a Wave?

Unit 4: Electromagnetics
Lesson 6 of 17

Objective: Students will confront the limitations of the wave model of light.

Big Idea: Electromagnetic phenomenon are complex - sometimes acting like waves, sometimes acting like particles.
