Daily Objectives:

1.  Describe how waves vary

2.  Differentiate between types of waves, including sound waves, seismic waves, and waves on water.

3.  Identify properties and types of waves

4.  Demonstrate different types of waves; show what happens to amplitude and frequency when a greater force/energy initiates your wave.
5.  Demonstrate how waves transfer energy when they interact with matter (for example: tuning fork in water, waves hitting a beach, earthquake knocking over buildings).
P.EN.07.31 / P.EN.07.32 / P.EN.07.33
Today in Class:
1.  Students continued to complete their List Notes, as they read and defined the terms in pages 17 – 23, and also related real-world connections to these concepts.  You should have discussed these real-world examples with other students.
2.  Students suggested different examples of wave demonstrations that they could design or set up.  You should have referred to the textbook examples or looked online for examples of simple wave demos (light, sound, or mechanical waves).
Study once more for the Quiz I, Waves.  You should have been studying your list notes, and reviewing the concepts by looking at diagrams and using slinkies or ropes to demonstrate wave parts, wave types and wave properties.
