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.

Concept Builder: Waves and Sound - Matching Pairs - Wave Characteristics

Very few students fail to see the value in a Concept Builder. These interactive exercises provide ample opportunity to put conceptual understandings to use. This one pertains to wave speed, wavelength, amplitude, frequency, and period. It is an exceptional review of this video and the two that came before it in our Tutorial Series on Vibrations and Waves.


Concept Builder: Waves and Sound - Waves: Case Studies

In this Concept Builder, you will learn how to predict the effect of wave properties and medium properties upon the speed and wavelength of a wave. It's great practice for the concepts in the last half of the video.

Calculator Pad, Vibrations and Waves, Problem Set WM5

Calculator Pad problem sets make for awesome problem-solving practice. They provide problems with random numbers, an answer field, and lots of help. Enter an answer and check it; correct it if it's wrong. Problem Set WM5 includes six v=d/t calculations for wave speed. Tap one of the Help links if you're having trouble. 

Physics Classroom Tutorial: Vibrations and Waves Chapter, Lesson 2 - Speed 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.
