|Title||Wave Interference in 2D|
|Keywords||interference, water, sound, light, constructive interference, destructive interference|
|Description||This activity helps students understand what happens when two-dimensional waves interfere. Learning Goals: o Interpret a 2D top view picture of a wave o Identify areas of constructive and destructive interference in 2D. o Predict the behavior of water, sound, or light when you have two sources (predict what will happen in both constructive and in destructive areas)|
