Qty.
Perfect for modeling standing and moving transverse waves as well as moving sound waves.

Description

This 6-foot-long spring stretches to over 30 feet! Perfect for modeling standing and moving transverse waves as well as moving sound waves. Demonstrate the relationship between wavelength and frequency in a way your students will never forget. You can even stretch the spring through a large slit in a piece of cardboard to demonstrate how a polarizing filter works. These gigantic springs are difficult to find and have myriad uses in the classroom and laboratory. 3/4" diameter.

Is nice, but I honestly think it might be a bit too long. Could be my classroom is pretty small. Still works for what I need it for.

This is the best way I've seen to show transverse/compressional waves. Bought it for a demo and decided to buy 7 more after reading over the lesson plan so students can make the waves for themselves.

This is what I needed to understand what a wave is when I was a young student. A drawing is not enough. A movie helps. But it's always best to see it firsthand, and do it yourself, if possible. Using this helps you get soo many aspects of wave behavior through...

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.
