|Title||Slinky Lab With PhET Waves Simulation|
|Description||Two-page (low paper use) lab with ten-point formal assessment at its conclusion. The lab should take no more than 40 minutes, including calculations and questions. This lab is easy for the students to perform and easy to grade. If absent, this lab can be done at home with little instructor input. The small plastic slinkies can be bought at various dollar stores. This lab is performed early in a wave mechanics unit at an urban high school in Las Vegas, Nevada.|
