I've put together a walkthrough of how I teach each of my physics units inside my classroom (including Light and Waves). If you're struggling to get started or just want to see what someone else does, my day-by-day physics teaching schedule can be found here.


This senior physics unit package includes a complete lesson set for a Senior Level Physics Light and Waves Unit totalling 5 Power Points and 110 slides.

Buyer Comment: "great animations and links. Notes are very easy to follow."

This file is in .zip format. All that means is you download the lesson package as one file (.zip) and then double-click it to extract it. No additional software is needed, your PC or Mac will do all the work. Please view the Preview File to obtain a sense of my style, see how my PowerPoint lesson is structured and evaluate my work. If you are not 100% happy with what you purchase, I will refund your entire purchase price via PayPal. To access the video(s), begin the slideshow and click the image of the video player. A new window will open up taking you directly to the video.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
