Wave Models


[Students with equipment]

[Wave Models guide]

With Wave Models, your students have everything they need to develop a deep understanding of harmonic motion, waves, and sound. The Pendulum investigations provide students with an ideal introduction to harmonic motion, sound, and waves. The concepts of cycle, period, frequency, and amplitude are intuitively illustrated, while advanced concepts such as extrapolation, rate of change, and functions can also be explored. The Sound and Waves investigations open up fascinating questions for hands-on explorations that are guaranteed to grab your students’ attention. Wavelength, frequency, resonance beats, natural frequency, and interference are among the many topics that you will explore with your students.
