In Shedding Light on Curved Mirrors, presenter Spiro Liacos uses clear, real-life examples and superb animations to explain how and why convex and concave mirrors are so useful. Following a brief recap on reflection in flat mirrors, Spiro shows how convex mirrors are used in a wide variety of safety applications. He then describes how concave mirrors produce images, and explains the uses of concave reflectors in things like headlights, satellite dishes and solar cookers. The program comes with a set of excellent practical activities and question sheets which keep students engaged in their learning for multiple lessons.
