This unit has been used in my Modern Physics class. This course is offered to Juniors and Seniors at my school, and Physics 1 is a pre-requisite. There will be no math used past Algebra 1 or 2. We teach on a block schedule, so the unit may need to be modified for pacing in a classroom that is not on block.
This is a 7 day unit, with content for 5 instructional days, 1 review packet (with key) and 2 test versions (with keys). Topics include evidence that light acts as waves and particles, how electromagnetic radiation is produced, Plank's model and energies, thermal radiation, the photoelectric effect, and energies of photons. Included in the powerpoint presentations are engaging videos that have visuals that will help students see the physics.
Everything is here and ready for you to begin your study of quantum light with your students. Your download will include 3 powerpoint presentations, 4 practice pages and/or note guides, a lab packet, a review packet (with key) and two tests (with keys). I am also including an extra credit opportunity, a word search just for fun, as well as the unit plan along with learning targets.
