Wave Theory: Making Sense Out of Sound
Twelfth graders stretch and shake a helical coiled spring rapidly with an up and down motion in order to generate wave pulses. They observe the patterns of movement produced in the spring. They read text and watch a video "The Nature of Waves.

Physical Setting: Physics Exam 2004
Twelve pages of mostly multiple-choice questions comprise this comprehensive New York Regents physics exam. It covers an entire year's worth of physics curriculum and requires about three hours for completion. Review the questions to make sure that they are all covered in your class, then create your own answer sheet for student use.

Earthquake Waves And Their Destructions
Students investigate primary and secondary waves and how to measure the magnitude of waves. They discover how to find the epicenter of earthquakes. They examine why waves are more destructive in some areas than others through these activities.

HW Unit 10:2-Harmonic Motion
In this harmonic motion instructional activity, students answer 9 questions about pendulums, a slinky and characteristics of harmonic motion. They identify the changes in waves as the amplitude gets bigger and interpret a graph of position vs.

From Vibration to Sound
Students observe a series of demonstrations to illustrate wave movement. In this sound wave lesson, students witness how objects create waves when dropped in a dish of water, use a rope and slinky to produce transverse and longitudinal waves, then diagram a wave.

Hold Off on the Headphones
Students determine that waves carry energy and information from one place to another. They determine that wavelength, frequency and wave speed are related and describe that sound is a longitudinal wave whose speed depends on the properties of the medium in which it propagates.

A Whole Lotta Shakin'
Students read first hand accounts of earthquake survivors in order to begin the describe the different types of earthquake waves and the order in which they arrive. They engage in using earthquake waves as a means to indirectly study the Earth's interior.
