This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the Physics: Waves. This lesson looks at the mathematical skill of using the wave equation.
This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:
*Identify that sound requires a medium to travel in.
*Describe how to measure the speed of a wave on a string.
*Explain, using calculation, the speed of a wave.
*Apply the wave equation, by rearranging to find the wave speed, wavelength and frequency of a wave.
*Link your understanding of the particle model to explain if sound travels faster in solids, liquids or gases.
This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.
Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
