Author(s): Yasushi Sakurada; Takashi Nakamura

Paper Abstract

Some phenomena of color and light in the human life and Nature are demonstrated for students in junior high and senior high school as well as college students as atmospheric optics. We used simple experiments and computer simulations as teaching materials and demonstrated atmospheric optics phenomenon so far. We let college students make computer programs in addition to experiments and computer graphics for their understanding of theory. In any case we stimulate their curiosity. It is necessary and important to let them interested in the teaching materials.
