Class Today….

1.  We completed the Wavelength, Frequency & Speed activity.  Students used the formula  S =  λ   x   f     Then we discussed and answered questions about the table, analyzing the data.

2.  Students began demonstrating their   sound  /  light  /  mechanical water wave demos in groups.  They discussed the concepts shown.


1.  Read pages 65 – 79.  Use a reading strategy to read the text effectively.  If you did not complete the 3 Questions assigned with the past reading assignment, you should complete 3 Questions on Sticky notes by Monday for this new reading selection.
