Models in Technology and Science by Bernie Zubrowski.

Regular mirrors are first investigated through several kinds of challenges and games. The tracing of reflected light rays is carried out to help students understand how images are formed. Pieces of plexiglass are used to investigate the transmission and reflection of light. Flexible Mylar is used to investigate how curved surface reflect light. These experiences provide the context for introducing properties of light such as reflection, transmission as well as a way of modeling what happens to light in these situations.
