My rating of this resource: ****

My experience using this resource:

Topic I was teaching:
Any topic would work here but I was teaching light and about the importance of Young's Double slit experiment to the model of light

My learning goal for which this resource was used:
To give a short clip on how the double slit calculation can be done and how the calculation helps to support data and observation that can be collected.

Course Level:
Honors or Advanced

How I/my students used the resource:
The section on the calculation of the interference patterns and how these calculation could be used to predict and find areas of intereference with sound in the lecture hall.

Value Added:
Provides visualization or animation, Provides additional content, Increases student engagement and motivation, Students could see what a science lecture might be like in a large college

For students to see a very good professor in college working on the same topic as we were and also for the feeling of what a college lecture might feel and look like for the seniors moving on to college next year.

The level and lecture style was difficult for some students in the class
