Product Description
This is an interactive computer simulation designed to guide students into discovering the properties of waves. The first part of this inquiry-styled lab investigates the effects of amplitude, frequency, damping, and tension by having students determine their independent and dependent variables while also setting conditions to keep constant. The second half introduces the concept of transverse waves moving perpendicular to the motion of the medium.

This lab is a perfect introduction (or review) of waves for first year physics students or physics science students. Most appropriate age groups would be grades 8 - 10, although I have used this lab successfully with my 11-12 grade physics classes.

The simulation is HTML5 and will run on any internet capable device from a smart phone to a desktop. Here is the link - it is also available as a live link in the pdf. Waves on a String

Included in the packet:
o Lab handout
o Teacher notes
o Post lab quiz
o Lab Quiz Key
