The module introduces learners to the nature of wave, properties and interactions. It include sound and light waves study guides student's and teacher's version, and activities. The study guides can be used as students work alone or in groups. The laboratory activities included involves students in investigation and discovering more about waves and its place in the society.
Physical Science Standards
S8P4. Students will explore the wave nature of sound and electromagnetic radiation.
a. Identify the characteristics of electromagnetic and mechanical waves.
b. Describe how the behavior of light waves is manipulated causing reflection, refraction diffraction, and absorption.
c. Explain how the human eye sees objects and colors in terms of wavelengths.
d. Describe how the behavior of waves is affected by medium (such as air, water, solids).
e. Relate the properties of sound to everyday experiences.
f. Diagram the parts of the wave and explain how the parts are affected by changes in amplitude and pitch.
