This highly visible, lightweight plastic spring is easy for students to manipulate.

Description

This highly visible, lightweight plastic spring is easier for students to manipulate than metal wave springs, allowing for more flexibility in classroom demonstrations and student lead experimentation. Investigations include the measurement of the phase of reflected waves, the velocity of transverse or longitudinal waves, determination of the frequency and wavelength of a wave, and experiments on standing waves. Includes five experimental lesson plans. "Wire" diameter 1.5mm, O.D. 17mm, length 500 mm. Expands to more than 27 feet (more than 8 meters).

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

1-PS4-3
1-PS4-4

Students can use this tool to conduct an investigation of how light and sound waves travel.

MS-PS4-1

Students can use this tool to model and describe simple waves that include how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.

HS-PS4-1

Students can use this tool to model and describe simple waves that include how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave, before launching mathematical representation among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

MS-PS4-1

With classroom demonstrations and investigations, the emphasis is on describing waves with both qualitative and quantitative thinking, which then can be linked with mathematical representation.
