published by the National Repository of Online Courses
This page is a free multimedia tutorial relating to the wave nature of light, appropriate for high school students in an introductory physics course.  Materials are formatted in Adobe Flash, with short video clips, animations, and interactive question-and-answer sets.  This segment gives a straightforward explanation of Young's double-slit experiment to help beginners see that light has characteristics of both a wave and a particle.  A real-life problem is included that asks users to take the role of a technician who calibrates diffraction gratings.  This resource is part of a full module on the physics of optics published by the NROC.

Please note that this resource requires Flash.
