- Use a step by step problem solving process to
deduce the rules for color addition.
- Learn how to use three apparati to manipulate
and measure color perception.
- Graphically depict the results.
1. Microcomputer connected to network (Part C)
2. Hand Stand Perimeter, Instructions, Color samples, wand,
colored marking pens (Part A)
3. E-Prime and sample program
4. Color Wheel and color disks (Part B)
5. Singerman Color Mixer (Part C)
Part A. Color Perception: With a partner map
the retina of your right eye for sensitivity to the colors of
red, blue, green, yellow and white. Show your results by
marking the color sensitivity areas on the chart provided in
lab. Work on this activity alternately with the other
activities in order to avoid eye strain. Find the "blind
spot" for each individual.
Part B. Color Addition- Color Wheel.
With the color wheel determine the rules of color addition by
adding together the colors blue, red, green and yellow (two at
a time). Record your results on your lab report. Use
E-Prime to replicate the results that you obtained with the
Part C. Color Addition- Using the Singerman color mixer
(located in Hoyt 127) demonstrate color addition first by
mixing the same colors as before two at a time and then mix
them three at a time. Instructions for the Singerman are on
