Decibel Scale

The Decibel Scale Concept Builder sharpens a learner's understanding of the logarithmic nature of the deciBel scale. Learners are told the deciBel level of Sound Source A and are told that Sound Source B is 10n times more or less intense. The learner must use this information and an understanding of deciBels in order to determine the deciBel level of Sound Source B. There are 36 total questions organized into 12 different Question Groups and spread across three difficulty levels. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
