Learners draw diagrams of diffraction and interference patterns to understand how interference and diffraction patterns are formed. They identify crests and troughs of a wave and measure wavelength. They explain the effects of changing wavelength, slit separation, or distance to screen on the spacing of the diffraction pattern.
