Theme: Sounds Title: The Sounds and Science Overview: Sound, and the perception of it, is natural to us. It is one of our five basic senses. We need not understand sound in order to benefit from it through communication, music, and silence. However, we have discovered much about sound and developed technologies by amplifying it, focusing it, and bending it. This lesson begins to look into some of the properties of sound. Grade Level: 9-12 Subject Matter: Physics Biology Duration: 3-4, 50-minute lessons

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
