Is light a wave AND/OR a particle

  1. Oct 31, 2009 #1
    I heard recently that it cannot be both a wave and a particle, yet I've always been taught it kinda is. I don't know what to believe. I know it has the properties of both a wave and a particle, but can it be both? What properties make it seem like a particle?
