This is a standards-aligned lesson plan for secondary education on the topic of mechanical wave motion. The lesson blends a six-minute video with a classroom activity that uses Slinky springs to model transverse and longitudinal waves. Explicit directions are given to support new or crossover teachers, including background information on wave energy and discussion questions. The resource was developed for use with the video <i>"Making Big Waves"</i>, which may be freely downloaded for classroom use. Teachers' Domain, a network partner of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), is a growing collection of free educational resources compiled by researchers and experienced teachers to promote the use of digital resources in the classroom.

This is an interactive activity for middle school on the fundamentals of waves, adapted from the University of Utah's ASPIRE lab. It features animations of wave motion and a simulation that explores how a wave moves through different mediums. Students can adjust the density of the medium and choose to view longitudinal, transverse, or circular wave motion. The animation on water waves clearly depicts the movement of periodic waves, which can be difficult for learners to visualize. This resource also includes background information, discussion questions, and links to applicable national science education standards. Teachers' Domain is an NSF-funded network partner of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). It is a growing collection of free educational resources compiled by researchers and experienced teachers to promote the use of digital resources in the classroom. Less
