Waves: Light and Sound


In this module, students explore a series of activities of light and sound. As an introduction, students use a seismograph and observe wavelength and frequency and discover their relationship. Their exploration of waves continues through investigating vibrations and the production of sound waves. Using a guitar model, students create and observe different pitch notes and relate the sounds produced to the frequency of the vibrations. As a part of investigating the properties of light, students solve an intriguing puzzle game consisting of mirrors and images.
