Title Sound: An Introduction (Inquiry Based)
Description The students will use the simulation to learn the goals through an inquiry approach. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: Explain how different sounds are modeled, described, and produced; Design ways to determine the speed, frequency, period and wavelength of a sound wave model. I have included some concept questions suitable for clickers and a lab that I use in conjunction with the simulation with Labpro equipment.
