1 Diagrams
1.1 Rays are drawn with arrows showing their direction
1.2 Normal is drawn at 90 degrees from mirror
1.3 Mirrors
1.3.1 Surface that the light bounces off Straight line
1.3.2 Back Diagonal lines along it to show the light doesn't reflect from it
1.4 Label the rays
1.5 Label the normal
2 Rays
2.1 ALWAYS travel in straight lines
2.2 Incident ray
2.2.1 The ray before it strikes a mirror
