Science and Technology/Engineering
Additional Ideas for Developing Investigations and Learning Experiences and Suggested Extensions to Learning in Technology/Engineering are in Appendix III.
Broad Concept: Waves carry energy from place to place without the transfer of matter.
|4.1|| Differentiate between wave motion (simple harmonic nonlinear motion) and the motion of objects (nonharmonic).*|
|4.2 ||Recognize the measurable properties of waves (e.g., velocity, frequency, wavelength) and explain the relationships among them. * |
|4.3 ||Distinguish between transverse and longitudinal waves.|
|4.4 ||Distinguish between mechanical and electromagnetic waves. *|
|4.5 ||Interpret and be able to apply the laws of reflection and refraction (qualitatively) to all waves.|
|4.6 ||Recognize the effects of polarization, wave interaction, and the Doppler effect.|
|4.7 ||Explain, graph, and interpret graphs of constructive and destructive interference of waves.|
|4.8 ||Explain the relationship between the speed of a wave (e.g., sound) and the medium it travels through.|
|4.9 ||Recognize the characteristics of a standing wave and explain the conditions under which two waves on a string or in a pipe can interfere to produce a standing wave.|
