Several years ago, Mr. Bakken constructed a HyperCard stack covering much of the subject we call Geometric Optics. It was called the Optics Bookshelf©. While it was used to instruct classes, it was also useful for students studying the various topics and reviewing for tests.
This is the first of several web pages that will become the new "Optics Bookshelf©". You can get back to this main menu by clicking the "Back" button of your browser.
A single click on one of the "books" above or on one of the links below will take you directly to the section you wish to investigate further. If a section is not linked it is because we haven't studied it in class, yet. Enjoy and learn.
