This new Windows application is a study guide and a tutorial. It helps high school physics students become efficient problem solvers in Geometrical Optics. The students have the opportunity of practicing 252 original and carefully designed problems. The following is the list of topics covered and the number of problems in each topic:
Optics Terminology [ 36 problems ]
Reflection [ 10 ]
Index of Refraction [ 14 ]
Snell's Law [ 8 ]
Critical Angle [ 6 ]
Converging Lenses [ 58 ]
Diverging Lenses [ 24 ]
Concave Mirrors [ 48 ]
Convex Mirrors [ 22 ]
Magnification [ 26 ]
A great feature is that every problem is carefully explained step by step. The questions and the solutions from the data bank are presented in ascending order, and the students can start at any point. This method allows students to study independently the specific exercises in each topic.
It takes just a few minutes to learn to use this Study Guide. Simply place the Zip file in any folder or subfolder you want. Right click the mouse and select Extract all the files. The subfolder Geometrical Optics Guide 1 is created. From inside the subfolder, just select the file Start Test Generator, and the students are ready to begin practicing. It is that simple. If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them as soon as possible. Again, this program is for computers using Windows 10 or newer.
