The resource contains many forms, such as texts, videos, quiz. The resource also includes examples that demonstrate how each optical law is applied. Very interesting for student learning.

Like the rest of the sites in the author's collection, this site is very
informative, clear, and uses nice graphics (some animated) to illustrate the
points. Very extensive discussion. For a nontechnical discussion, this site
should be very helpful.
