LIGHT AND SIGHT by Charles Gramet

Email this review


There is a dearth of effective basic material on sight, light and optics. This is an area that has been assumming greater importance and receiving more emphasis in science and physics courses at the high school level since the onset of the Space Age. Light and Sight is trained on existing knowledge and future needs for space research. The author, an experienced science teacher, is accurate and thorough in his coverage. In well organized steps that go from the structure and function of the eye (microscopic creatures to man) through the application of optical principles --mirrors, telescopes, periscopes, etc. The generous number of diagrams by Leslie S. Raywood illustrating the various lens products are done to scale with clear labels.
