Description:

This item is a tutorial for introductory calculus-based physics students on the topic of waves. It was created to be used with the simulation "Wave on a String", developed by PhET (Physics Education Technology Project). The author uses sound wave analogies to prepare students for learning about electromagnetic waves. This item was approved by the PhET project, and is part of a set of teacher-created materials developed to supplement the PhET collection of interactive physics simulations.
