This site combines math, physics, and humor to give an entertaining and educational lesson. ‘Shmoop’ uses simple graphics and relatable scenarios to convey complex ideas. Anyone who doesn’t quite understand how mirrors work will when they have finished reading through this page. Shmoop has all sorts of in depth lessons on optics, and other fields in physics. Shmoop is an all around good site for crash-course physics, english, and even pop culture.
This site tackles the same topic from a different angle. ‘The Physics Classroom’ focuses more on formulas to convey ideas rather than images. While perhaps a little harder to immediately understand this site will help more with the mathematical side of things. This site also has additional study guides to help with more specific areas of optics and mirrors. Both of these sites will help with understanding mirrors.
This journal article presents mirrors through a different lens than the either of the websites. With history and math, this article gives an depth explanation of how mirrors work. To keep the reader’s attention, there are ‘did you know’ facts and labs to try sprinkled through out the article. There are also several images in the article to help demonstrate common uses of mirrors.
