Rating

This unit launches with a slow-motion video of a speaker as it plays music. In the previous unit, students developed a model of sound. This unit allows students to investigate the cause of a speaker’s vibration in addition to the effect.

Students dissect speakers to explore the inner workings, and engineer homemade cup speakers to manipulate the parts of the speaker. They identify that most speakers have the same parts–a magnet, a coil of wire, and a membrane. Students investigate each of these parts to figure out how they work together in the speaker system. Along the way, students manipulate the components (e.g. changing the strength of the magnet, number of coils, direction of current) to see how this technology can be modified and applied to a variety of contexts, like MagLev trains, junkyard magnets, and electric motors.

Students play and record the “Mary Had a Little Lamb” song using musical instruments and analyze the intensity of the sound using free audio editing and recording software. Then they use hollow Styrofoam half-spheres as acoustic mirrors (devices that reflect and focus sound), determine the radius of curvature of the mirror and calculate its focal length. Students place a microphone at the acoustic mirror focal point, re-record their songs, and compare the sound intensity on plot spectrums generated from their recordings both with and without the acoustic mirrors. A worksheet and KWL chart are provided.

Students are presented with the following challenge: their new school is under construction and the architect accidentally put the music room next to the library. Students need to design a room that will absorb the most amount of sound so that the music does not disturb the library. Students use a box as a proxy for the room need to create a design that will decrease the sound that is coming from the outside of the box. To evaluate this challenge, students use a speaker within the box and a decibel meter outside the box to measure the effectiveness of their design.

Foley Art:  The Art of Making Sounds
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Students will learn how to produce their own sounds to add to their video projects. This technique is called Foley Art. There are several excellent videos that can be shown during class or assigned as a flipped assignment. Either way, these videos should draw great discussion during class on how to capture homemade produced sounds. Some of the videos I use come from YouTube and are titled "The Magic of Making Sound," "This Artist Creates Sounds for Movies," "How the Sound Effects in 'A Quiet Place' Were Made," "Foley Artists: How Movie Sound effects are Made," and "The Hunger Games & Frozen Foley Artists Turn the Sound of Junk into Miracles--Art of Sound Ep. 3." Simply do a search for Foley Art. After the discussion, students will then select a movie trailer, convert the trailer into a file format that works with their video editing software. Once the file is uploaded into their software, students will remove/detach the audio and begin brainstorming appropriate sound effects and how these can be made for the video. Students should compile a list of at least 10 sound effects. After all students have their lists, divided the students into groups. I find that it is necessary to have more than one person in order to effectively produce the sounds. Once students are in their groups, combine their lists, and come up with 10 sounds they think they can personally produce. Students will need to brainstorm props that can be used to produce their sounds. Once the sounds have been created, each student will then add, trim, and edit the sounds and add to the movie trailer.

After the last day of editing, the students will come back together with their group and show their video to the class. Students should explain how sounds were created.

Giants of the Depths: Sperm whales
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This educational video features Sperm whales and has an accompanying lesson plan to teach about Sound in the Sea. The Sperm whale holds many records. It is the deepest-diving whale on Earth, the largest toothed whale on Earth and has the largest brain on the planet too. On top of that, it has a reputation for being a vicious beast, thanks in part to Herman Melville's Moby Dick. But the real Sperm whale is a lot different than people think. It has a highly-evolved social life, operates at depths where nobody can see them most of the time, and uses sonar which is so sophisticated that it makes the Navy's electronics look like toys. Sperm whales are very hard to find and even harder to film. In the Caribbean, Jonathan repeatedly attempts to get close to the elusive whales, until finally he succeeds and has an incredible experience eye to eye with a giant who investigates him with powerful sonar clicks. Please see the accompanying lesson plan for educational objectives, discussion points and classroom activities.

How Can We Sense So Many Different Sounds from a Distance?
Rating

In this unit, students start by observing a perplexing phenomenon. When a sewing needle taped to a cone is dragged over the surface of a plastic disc that is spun underneath it, it produces voices and musical notes. This leads students to start wondering about other sound-related phenomena, which in turn leads to wealth of new questions about 1) What causes different sounds? 2) What is traveling from a sound source to our ears? 3) How do we hear and why do we hear things differently in different places? and 4) How do electronic devices (digital sound sources) produce and detect sounds?

This e-book is one of the results of the international project “The Magic of Sound” coordinated by XV. gimnazija, Zagreb, Croatia, with the partners: Devonport High School for Girls, Plymouth, United Kingdom, Justus-von-Liebig Gymnasium, Neußäs, Germany and Colegiul National Moise Nicoara, Arad, Romania. The project was funded by the European Union through the program Erasmus+.
Based on the existing curricula of all participating schools, we produced the teaching/ learning materials which could make education more interesting. As they are independent from the school system, they can be shared and further developed on a broad base.
The developed teaching/ learning materials and methods integrate the teaching of basic skills, as in science, mathematics, literacy and arts, and present strategies on how to simultaneously give students deeper insights into the global picture. They also provide students with the tools to interconnect their knowledge and apply it in different fields, which still presents one of the biggest challenges in education on the overall.
We chose sound as a topic because we found that it can be perfectly integrated in the subject curricula of Physics, Mathematics, Music, Languages, Biology, History and Psychology in all four countries. The sub-topics are organised in four groups around the main subjects - O1: Magic of Music, O2: Sounds in Nature, O3: Sounds of Europe, O4: Theory of Sound- which allowed us to establish a solid basis for the interdisciplinary teaching. In the final sub-topic, O5: The Magic of Sound, the techniques and examples on how to reorganise the materials in an arbitrary context are presented.
The materials are presented in a variety of forms: worksheets, methodological instructions, presentations, videos, quizzes, etc. There are examples of completely developed interdisciplinary units, but there are also shorter pieces that incorporate elements of general knowledge or other subject- specific links which enrich the teaching of a primary subject without overloading it. Some materials include evidence of students’ work.
Most of the materials are given in four languages of the participating countries, all of them in the English language. Topics to be incorporated in the teaching of languages are structured as follows: French is given separately, because it is not one of the four “official” languages, English given only in the sections in English, and German is given in all sections.
Some materials allow students to see the opportunities for future employment within the EU in the context of what has been taught, and to realize that being a part of Europe does not mean losing their identity, but enhance it in many positive ways. Together we are stronger.

Students apply sound-activated light-up EL wire to create personalized light-up clothing outfits. During the project, students become familiar with the components, code and logic to complete circuits and employ their imaginations to real-world applications of technology. Acting as if they are engineers, students are challenged to incorporate electroluminescent wire to regular clothing to make attention-getting safety clothing for joggers and cyclists. Luminescent EL wire stays cool, making it ideal to sew into wearable projects. They use the SparkFun sound detector and the EL sequencer circuit board to flash the EL wire to the rhythm of ambient sound, such as music, clapping, talking—or roadway traffic sounds! The combination of sensors, microcontrollers and EL wire enables a wide range of feedback and control options.

They learn about the undesirable and disturbing effects of noise and the resulting consequences on people's health, as well as on the health of the environment. They use a sound level meter that consists of a sound sensor attached to the LEGO® NXT Intelligent Brick to record the noise level emitted by various sources. They are introduced to engineering concepts such as sensors, decibel (dB) measurements, and sound pressure used to measure the noise level. Students are introduced to impairments resulting from noise exposure such as speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption and reduced productivity. They identify potential noise pollution sources, and based on recorded data, they classify these sources into levels of annoyance. Students also explore the technologies designed by engineers to protect against the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Middle School: mySci: How can we as engineers design a concert experience for others to enjoy?
Rating
0.0 stars

This module is centered on the driving question, “How can we as engineers design a concert experience for others to enjoy?” In order to answer this question, students will consider what a wave is, and how waves are modeled. They will explore sound and light waves, and how these waves interact with various media. The culminating performance task requires students to synthesize this information, and apply it to the design of a concert experience.

The materials below are shared via a google drive folder and can be viewed and downloaded for use.

Rating
0.0 stars

Students learn the physical properties of sound, how it travels and how noise impacts human health—including the quality of student learning. They learn different techniques that engineers use in industry to monitor noise level exposure and then put their knowledge to work by using a smart phone noise meter app to measure the noise level at an area of interest, such as busy roadways near the school. They devise an experimental procedure to measure sound levels in their classroom, at the source of loud noise (such as a busy road or construction site), and in between. Teams collect data using smart phones/tablets, microphones and noise apps. They calculate wave properties, including frequency, wavelength and amplitude. A PowerPoint® presentation, three worksheets and a quiz are provided.

In my PBL inquiry Project I plan on covering standard 3.1.1. This standard goes over sound and sound vibrations, and with that being said we are going to be talking about what sound is, different objects we can use to creat sound, and different techniques we can use to get different sounds, along with different ranged (quiet to loud) noises. Attached is the PBL Inuiry Based Project layout, what will be discussed, what activities we will be doing, and the rubric I will be going off of to grade the final project.

Students continue to build a rigorous background in human sensors and their engineering equivalents by learning about electronic touch, light, sound and ultrasonic sensors that measure physical quantities somewhat like eyes, ears and skin. Specifically, they learn about microphones as one example of sound sensors, how sounds differ (intensity, pitch) and the components of sound waves (wavelength, period, frequency, amplitude). Using microphones connected to computers running (free) Audacity® software, student teams experiment with machine-generated sounds and their own voices and observe the resulting sound waves on the screen, helping them to understand that sounds are waves. Students take pre/post quizzes, complete a worksheet and watch two short online videos about "seeing" sound.
