  3. 3. SummaryArea of focus: The Law of ReflectionTopics covered: • Surface normal • Angle of incidence • Angle of reflection • The Law of ReflectionSuggested time to complete (2 hrs): • Teaching material (20 minutes) • Practice activity (40 minutes) • Final project (60 minutes) 3
  4. 4. Surface NormalA surface normal to a flat surface is a vector that is perpendicular to that surface. normal The dotted line is perpendicular to the flat surface. 4
  5. 5. Angle of IncidenceThe angle of incidence θi of a ray is the angle measured from the ray to the surface normal. normal θi 5
  6. 6. Angle of Reflection The angle of reflection θr of a ray is the anglemeasured from the reflected ray to the surface normal. normal θr 6
  7. 7. The Law of Reflection When a ray of light reflects off a surface, the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. θi = θr normal θi θrThe Law of Reflection describes a property of light; however, we can use the Law of Reflection toestimate the direction of our shots in games such as miniature golf and billiards if we assume that thethere is no spin and the shot is at a low to medium strength. 7
  8. 8. Practice Activity Correctly draw and label the shot path to get a hole-in-one from the “X”. Be sure to use a protractor to correctly measure and label all angles. Bonus points if you can find 2 unique paths to the hole. 8
  9. 9. Final ProjectRequirementsDesign and label a miniature golf hole that includes: • the shot path to get a hole-in-one using the Law of ReflectionFor full points, be sure to: • label all angles along the shot path • draw and label the surface normal for each angle of incidence and angle of reflection along the shot path • use a protractor to accurately measure all angles • be creative! 9
  10. 10. Grading Rubric Bogey Par Birdie (70% - 79%) (80% - 89%) (90% - 100%) • Student shot path follows the • Student shot path follows the • Student shot path does not Law of Reflection; however, Law of Reflection and isShot Path follow the Law of Reflection student has made a calculation accurately calculated from tee error box to hole • Student incorrectly labeled • Student correctly labeled all more than one angle • Student incorrectly labeled an angles Labels • Student incorrectly labeled the angle or a surface normal • Student correctly labeled the surface normals surface normals • Miniature golf hole design is • Miniature golf hole design is playable and aesthetically plain and simple • Miniature golf hole design is pleasing • Student lines and angles are playable Design sloppy or incorrectly labeled • Student lines and angles are • Student lines and angles are neatly drawn and labeled • Miniature golf hole design neatly drawn and labeled • Miniature golf hole design is does not exhibit creativity creative and original 10
