Big Ideas:

  • Light can show particle-like and wave-like behaviour, and particles can show wave like behaviour.
  • The behaviour of light as a particle and the behaviour of particles as waves can be
    described mathematically.
  • Time is relative to a person’s frame of reference.
  • The effects of relativistic motion can be described mathematically.
  • New theories can change scientific thought and lead to the development of new technologies.
