The spring came in good shape and works nicely. I use it in demonstrating sound waves to music students, and it works well for both transverse and longitude waves.

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.
