Title Waves on a String (Inquiry Based)
Description The students will use the simulation to learn the goals through an inquiry approach.There is a pre/post test provided. Learning Goals: Students will be able to discuss wave properties using common vocabulary and they will be able to predict the behavior of waves through varying medium and at reflective endpoints. I made the pre/post test into a power point for using with clickers and have included a few questions adapted from other sources.
