Title Ripple While You Work
Description I traditionally used a version of this observation-based lab with ripple tanks; however, this proved too time-consuming for the objective. Students were able to perform the activity with little support from me and could probably be used for homework. The PhET Sound simulation makes a great follow-up demonstration.
