Gustavus Nobel Conference Outreach Program 2013 Curriculum Materials Waves - Building Background Document Overview: The purpose of this activity is to help students build a background of wave terms and the variables that affect the speed of a wave. This activity involves taking notes from a website to create a foldable flip chart and a hands-on activity or simulation. Minnesota State Academic Science Standards: Sound waves are generated from mechanical oscillations of objects and travel through a medium. 9P.2.3.1.1 Analyze the frequency, period and amplitude of an oscillatory system. 9P.2.3.1.2 Describe how vibration of physical objects sets up transverse and/or longitudinal waves in gases, liquids and solid materials. Objective: Students will use a foldable flip chart to take notes about the parts of a wave. Students will determine which variables affect the speed of a wave. Type of Activity: This activity has two parts, the first is reading a website and building a foldable flipchart. The second part is a hands-on activity with observations and conclusions using a simulation. Duration: 1 50 minute class period per activity Teacher Tips: This is intended as a Nobel Conference building background activity in preparation for later lessons. Concepts: Waves

Gustavus Nobel Conference Outreach Program 2013 Curriculum Materials Description of Activity: Part A Students will be given or instructed to make tabbed, foldable flip book as pictured. On the top page students will define the terms wave and medium . The tab of the second page students should label Parts of a Transverse Wave . On this page they will draw a transverse wave and label the parts. The 3rd tab should be labeled Parts of a Longitudinal Wave and on this page they will draw and label the parts of a longitudinal wave. Students should also define transverse and longitudinal waves on each of these pages and note how the energy and the particle move on each of their diagrams. The last tab should be labeled Variables Affecting Wave Speed and they will leave this one blank for now. Students will complete flip books as they read from the following website: When finished with this section, at the bottom of the page, click “skip to lesson 2” Review with students after the reading to make sure they defined terms and labeled everything correctly.

    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.
