Description

This waves worksheet is a review of the basic properties of transverse waves.

In this activity, students will:

  • MEASURE the frequency, wavelength, amplitude, and speed of 6 transverse waves.
  • DRAW a transverse wave based on provided information.
  • ANSWER analysis questions. Students compare frequency and wave speed as they learn that the amount of energy a wave carries is a property of frequency rather than speed (a common misconception for students!).


Vocabulary Learned:

  • Wavelength
  • Amplitude
  • Wave speed
  • Frequency

NGSSMS-PS4-1
Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave. Emphasis is on describing waves with both qualitative and quantitative thinking. Assessment does not include electromagnetic waves and is limited to standard repeating waves.
NGSSHS-PS4-1
Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media. Examples of data could include electromagnetic radiation traveling in a vacuum and glass, sound waves traveling through air and water, and seismic waves traveling through the earth. Assessment is limited to algebraic relationships and describing those relationships qualitatively.
