Once we wrap up refraction during this short week, we’ll spend some time playing with lenses before taking a quiz in the middle of next week and then physical optics (diffraction, thin slit interference, etc.). We’re probably not going to make it to fluids before the end of 3rd Quarter, but that’s okay – we’ll do all of that before Spring Break so that you have plenty of time to study for the AP exam in class before we take it in May. Have a great week!
