Typical Numeric Questions for Physics I - WavesLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Physics masters figure out the wavelength of different waves. Looking at a wave graph, they identify different characteristics. Many more problems get them working with both electromagnetic and sound waves. There are a total of 17...
Singing Plates - Standing Waves on Chladni PlatesLesson Planet
4 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Here's a short video that hits all the high notes! Young scientists observe as amazing patterns appear in sand during a short demonstration. In addition to art and music, the resource explains standing waves, nodes, and how a 3-D model...
Wave Phenomena and the Electromagnetic SpectrumLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed
Science learners scrutinize shadow size and quality, and experiment with diffraction. They model superposition of electromagnetic waves, and experiment with interference. These activities are action-packed and challenging for your...
Waves, Sinusoids, and IdentitiesEngageNY
11th - 12th CCSS: Designed
What is the net effect when two waves interfere with each other? The lesson plan answers this question by helping the class visualize waves through graphing. Pupils graph individual waves and determine the effect of the interference...
Single Photon InterferenceLesson Planet
6 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
How does a single photon show a phase shift? Using the interference pattern created by light traveling through a double slit, the resource asks whether the interference pattern would still show if only one photon of light is sent at a...
Diffraction and InterferenceLesson Planet
6 mins 11th - Higher Ed
How do you study something you can't see? The instructor in a video models an experiment that shows the wave properties of light (electromagnetic waves). The video follows another in a 14-part series that describes the features of...
Traveling Waves: Crash Course Physics #17Lesson Planet
8 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Explore transverse and longitudinal waves through a video lesson. Building on the previous lesson in the Crash Course physics series, the 17th lesson compares and contrasts transverse and longitudinal waves. The narrator includes a...
Quantum Wave InterferenceLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Quantum mechanics is one of the few times you can change the outcome simply by measuring it. Scholars use quantum detectors to investigate changes in waves and the patterns they produce. Simulations offer chances to experiment with high...
Sometimes You Behave Like a WAVE, Sometimes You Don't!Lesson Planet
10th - 12th
Electromagnetic radiation behaves like both a wave and a particle. Help classes explore this concept through a lab investigation. Young scientists create optical interference patterns on a glass slide using a carbon layer. They analyze...
Spectra Interference: Crash Course Physics #40Lesson Planet
8 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Finally, a lesson to brighten up the place! The 40th installment of the Crash Course physics series explores the physics of a light source. The narrator examines patterns between light and films and studies the oscillation patterns of...
Light Is Waves: Crash Course Physics #39Lesson Planet
10 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Help your classes visualize light as a wave using an engaging video lesson. The 39th lesson of the Crash Course physics series highlights the characteristics of a light wave. The lesson continues by analyzing the behavior of waves during...
Algebra II: Model Sound WavesLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Sounds like a good resource to use. Future mathematicians and musicians use trigonometric functions to investigate music-related themes. These include pitch, frequency, loudness, acoustic beats, and constructive/destructive interference.
