Vibrating ruler on table – feel and hear! Beating drum with rice/pasta – see and hear! Liken this to air molecules moving – put children in small  space, colliding. “How sounds are made” record info in books. Use revision books as aid. To understand that sounds can be changed To understand that pitch is how high or  low a sound is Sound investigation 1 – How can changing the amount of  water in a test-tube affect the pitch of sound? Talk through experiment (sheets).  How do we make the test fair? Record as poster? Report? Sound investigation 2 – Using one test tube and straw,  move straw up and down.  What happens to the pitch of the  sound? Record. To understand that sounds can be changed To understand that the more energy in the  vibration the louder the sound What is the relationship between the volume of sound and  the force you use to hit it?

    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.
