Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Minds on Physics, Sound Waves and Music Module: Mission SM10 - Harmonics for Closed-End Air Columns

There's nothing like a Minds On Physics mission for insuring understanding. This one is closely correlated with the video and provides an awesome follow-up. Use the Help button when you get stuck.


Minds on Physics, Sound Waves and Music Module: Mission SM11 - Mathematics for Closed-End Air Columns
