Instructional Ideas

  • Post the video after the lesson about making calculations based on wavelength, frequency, and speed of light for pupils to access if they need a reminder
Classroom Considerations

  • Assumes an understanding of the formula wavelength x frequency = speed
  • YouTube video requires Internet access
  • The fourth in a series of 14 lessons
Pros

  • Quick and clear explanation of using the formula
  • Includes units that need converting
Cons

  • Seems to make a leap in concepts from the previous lessons in the series
