This lesson reviews the fundamentals of mechanical waves. First, teachers will instruct students in the parts and movement of waves. Then students will work in small groups on several short inquiry activities that will allow them to understand the characteristics of waves.
HS-PS4 The wavelength and frequency of a wave are related to one another by the speed of travel of the wave, which depends on the type of wave and the medium through which it is passing.
