Description:

This is an instructional unit on the topic of waves, created for use in the high school physics classroom. It was designed to be used with interactive simulations developed by PhET, the Physics Education Technology project. Included are detailed lessons for integrating labs, simulations, demonstrations, and concept questions to introduce students to properties and behaviors of waves. Specific topics include frequency and wavelength, sound, the wave nature of light, geometric optics, resonance, wave interference, Doppler Effect, refraction, thin lenses, wave addition, and more. Activities are aligned to AAAS Benchmarks.
