Year 9 Science 2017 Focus Study 5: Electromagnetic Spectrum

This study introduces students to the history and exploration of ideas around Light.

Through practical investigation and theoretical research students will develop a greater understanding of the properties and characteristics of the electromagnetic spectrum, and how scientist have come to understand the wave nature of Light.

The Study commences on Monday, 4th September and finishes on Friday 15th of September 2017.

There will be homework throughout this study.

We are working with chapter 4 in the textbook, and we will have may investigations, including mixing light of different colours, refraction and reflection, - building on our last topic.

The value of our atmosphere in protecting us from UV radiation and securing our climate will also be discussed, together with human impact on the atmosphere and how we can address the consequences.

At the end of the FS, students need to hand in their lesson notes for assessment.
