Which text for which students?
-Information Text 1: Extension Students
- Information Text 2: Core Students
- Information Text 3: Support Students

The information texts cover the following concepts:
- the differences between point & extended sources of light and how that impacts on what shadows are formed.
-reflection (specular and diffuse), refraction (light spectrum, rainbows etc) and absorption (seeing colour, photosynthesis and heat transfer).
- the differences between transparent, translucent and opaque materials and how light interacts with them.
- electromagnetic radiation, visible light, Sir Isaac Newton, how we perceive colour and how colour can play role in determining the temperature of some objects.
-how light is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, how light travels in wavelengths and how these allow us to perceive colour. They also look at natural and artificial light, as well as incandescence and luminescence. The extension text briefly explains several theories of light from over the centuries.

Printing Hints: select ‘shrink to fit’, ‘scale to fit’ (whatever the prompt is on your device) to ensure entire pages are printed and nothing is missing.
