published by the The International Society for Optical Engineering
This activity on multiple reflections is produced by the International Society for Optical Engineering, the Optical  Society of America, and the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy.  Two plane rectangular mirrors that meet on one edge produce various reflection patterns. Students learn the relationship between the number of images produced and the orientation of the two mirrors. The site lists all necessary tools and materials and includes numerous helpful photographs and diagrams.
