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.

Physics Interactives: Waves and Sound - Simple Wave Simulator

A simulation provides a phun, interactive way to explore a topic. That's what you'll find on this page. Spend some time changing variables and observing the result. Also observe the transverse (waves in a rope) and longitudinal (sound waves in air) options. After playing, check your understanding with our Concept Checker.

Concept Builder: Waves and Sound - Wavelength

This! You gotta do this one! It fits the video like a hand in a glove. Click the link. Do it. Then tell a friend.


Calculator Pad, Vibrations and Wavs, Problem Set WM4

Calculator Pad problem sets make for awesome practice. They provide problems with random numbers, an answer field, and lots of help. Enter an answer and check it; correct it if its wrong. Tap one of the Help links if you're having trouble. And learn.

Physics Classroom Tutorial: Vibrations and Waves Chapter, Lesson 2 - Anatomy of a Wave

Our written tutorial pages provide a thorough, easy-to-understand, common-sense approach to Physics topics. This particular page addresses the same topics covered in the video. As such, it makes a great reference for a quick check-up or clarification of an idea.
