Mirrors and Reflection

Students observe how flat mirrors reflect light in straight lines and produce inverted images. They compare reflection of light by smooth and bumpy surfaces. Then they determine how the angle between two mirrors affects the number of images that they see reflected in the mirrors. Finally, they compare the images they see in convex and concave mirrors.
