This simulation-based activity for middle school was developed to help students build a foundation to understand basic wave properties. It was created by a middle school teacher to be used specifically with the PhET simulation "Wave on a String". It guides learners in data collection as they explore amplitude, wavelength, and frequency. Included are lesson plans, pre-lab concept questions, an inquiry-based partner activity (Day 1), and step-by-step student guide for the Day 2 computer simulation activity. This author was awarded the PhET Gold Star for excellence. The wave simulation, which must be open and displayed to complete this activity, is available from PhET at: Wave on a String. This lesson is part of PhET (Physics Education Technology Project), a large collection of free interactive simulations for science education.
