Product Description
I created this PowerPoint presentation for my high school physical science students, but it could also be used with high school physics students.

The PowerPoint has the Georgia Performance Standards as the second slide, with key concepts from those standards highlighted so students can see exactly what they are supposed to learn. The PowerPoint also has links to YouTube videos within the presentation. I've found this keeps the file size manageable by including links instead of embedding the videos. Because you are buying an edit-able PPT file, you can add or delete videos, slides, etc. to fit your class and your students.

This PowerPoint covers the following topics: types of waves, labeling longitudinal and transverse waves, surface waves, period, frequency, wave speed, doppler effect (no calculations), reflection/diffraction/refraction, interference, standing waves (no calculations), intensity, pitch, how we hear sound, ultrasound, sonar, dual nature of light (basic), speed of light, electromagnetic spectrum, reflection and color, mirrors (no calculations), refraction (no calculations), lenses (basic, no calculations).

NOTE: The preview file is a PDF, but you will be receiving a PowerPoint file when you purchase this item.

This PowerPoint is tied to the following Georgia Performance Standard:
SPS9. Students will investigate the properties of waves.
SPS9a. Recognize that all waves transfer energy.
SPS9b. Relate frequency and wavelength to the energy of different types of electromagnetic waves and mechanical waves.
SPS9c. Compare and contrast the characteristics of electromagnetic and mechanical (sound) waves.
SPS9d. Investigate the phenomena of reflection, refraction, interference, and diffraction.
SPS9e. Relate the speed of sound to different mediums.
SPS9f. Explain the Doppler Effect in terms of everyday interactions.
