Ray Optics

Learning the laws and principles of optics is often a challenging task for physics students. The Physics Classroom has developed a great tutorial on Ray Optics to help students understand "how reflection and refraction principles govern the formation of images by mirrors and lenses." Each section of the tutorial contains lengthy descriptions of the concepts, as well as diagrams and animations to facilitate visual learning. This is a great resource for physics students and teachers alike.
