Thesis Title: "Developing inquiry-based learning unit about light reflection and refraction"

Abstract: This research introduces a new unit to teach high school students in the topic of light reflection and refraction based on inquiry. The objective of this research is to construct the new learning process and effective hands-on instruments for increasing the students’ understanding in reflection and refraction of light. The new learning process is intelligible to students because clear inquiry steps and includes hands-on instruments which help students have better understanding in each concept. Moreover, the new learning process does not interrupt limited teaching times which are the main problems of most Thai high schools.  In order to evaluate students’ understanding,  we constructed the conceptual tests covering all topics concerned with  reflection and refraction in Thai contexts.
