Electromagnetic Spectrum

Electromagnetic Spectrum is an interactive tour through the spectrum.

You’ll use it to:

  • List the sources, users, detectors and dangers of each region within the spectrum
  • Show the sizes of the waves in each region
  • Explain that although we divide the electromagnetic spectrum into regions, it is just one kind of phenomenon
  • Compare scientific notation numbers with numbers written out in full
  • Investigate common prefixes used in science to help us deal with large or small numbers.
