In order to develop your practical skills, you should be carry out a range of practical experiments related to this topic. Possible experiments include determining the refractive index of solids and liquids, measuring the focal length of a lens, and using models of structures to investigate stress concentrations.

Mathematical skills that could be developed in this topic include using calculators to handle sin x, identifying uncertainties in measurements and using simple techniques to determine uncertainty when data are combined.

This topic may be studied using applications that relate to waves and light, for example medical physics.
