The power point covers the electromagnetic spectrum, light, photons, waves and their characteristics. the relationship between frequency, wavelength, and the speed of light are introduced with the formula for speed of light.
Calculating the energy of the electromagnetic waves is also covered with introduction to Planck's constant and the energy formula derived using the constant. How we see light is presented along with slides for each type of electromagnetic ray and how they can affect human health. I also have a slide on cosmic rays since they have the most energy of all electromagnetic rays.

Electromagnetic Spectrum: Eight Types of Waves 1 pg Foldable
This one page foldable has eight flaps for a description of radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, x-rays, gamma and cosmic rays. There are illustrations, instructions and a key included.
Visible Light Spectrum: Speed of Light, Planck's Constant, Energy of Light
In this worksheet students will use a visible light spectrum chart to calculate the wavelength of different colors of light. Then using the light equation and speed of light the students will figure out the frequency for each color. In the next step, students will use the frequency and Planck's constant in order to calculate the energy each color of light carries.
Students will also need to color the spectrum. I have mine work out their calculations on a separate sheet of notebook paper and turn it in attached to their charts. I have included an answer sheet so you can see what the final should look like. For my younger students I give them the color wavelengths. For my physics students I have them use the chart and figure the wavelengths out on their own. I use this in both Chemistry and Physics.

I have been teaching for 15 years in Texas. I work in a border community and have a experience teaching LEP, Sped, GT, bilingual, autistic, and BIC students. I have taught PAP and AP courses as well as trailer courses for students who have repeated science classes multiple times.
I like to teach my students using a lot of art and visuals. We create colorful foldables together and research questions that come up daily. I like for my students to be very creative in class. I also show real life examples. Its is important that students understand how science concepts they learn in school can be applied to their everyday life and occupations. I think it is important for students to not only learn the content but to know a little bit about the scientists and time that went into the discovery and establishment of the scientific ideas.
I was honored by College Board as a promising new AP Science teacher and by my school district.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Biology and Art from the University of Texas at El Paso. I earned my teaching certificate at Sul Ross University in Alpine, Texas. I received my Masters Degree from Webster University. I also have graduate hours in Biology from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.
I am not only a teacher but a parent and an artist as well. I have completed murals for churches in the El Paso area. I also illustrate and create murals for private families and businesses. I write and illustrate children's books.
