  1. Students will begin to explore the properties of waves, specifically wavelength, frequency, amplitude, and wave speed. This article makes a connection between color and these properties and focuses specifically on the phenomenon of color and how we humans perceive it. Future articles will look at tr
  2. This article complements the first Properties of Wave article by expanding student exploration into longitudinal waves. Students will learn about sound waves, how humans hear, how mediums influence the transmittance of both transverse and longitudinal waves, and how waves can interact with a surface
  3. Students will explore the different waves that make up the Electromagnetic Spectrum by applying the information to communication systems. Embedded questions, as well as an application-based summary page, will help students to show mastery of their understanding of these different components. This ar

This bundle includes three articles about waves. Starting with the properties of transverse waves (amplitude, frequency, wavelength, etc) and examining how color and wavelength are related, students learn about the basic principles of waves. The second article is more about sound waves and longitudinal waves, but also how waves behave when they encounter a surface or a change in medium. The final article focuses on the Electromagnetic Spectrum and specifically looks at how each type of wave is used for communication or other human uses. Supports TN Science Standards 8.PS4.1, 8.PS4.2 and 8.PS4.3

Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals. Emphasis is on a basic understanding that waves can be used for communication purposes. Examples could include using fiber optic cable to transmit light pulses, radio wave pulses in wifi devices, and conversion of stored binary patterns to make sound or text on a computer screen. Assessment does not include binary counting. Assessment does not include the specific mechanism of any given device.
Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials. Emphasis is on both light and mechanical waves. Examples of models could include drawings, simulations, and written descriptions. Assessment is limited to qualitative applications pertaining to light and mechanical waves.
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.
