Concept Checker for The Particle Wave Simulation

Our Concept Checker for The Particle Wave Simulation consists of 28 questions organized into 7 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker. 

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to an activity - The Particle Wave simulation.

The The Particle Wave simulation is accompanied by a classroom-ready exercise titled The Particle Wave.  We recommend the use of the exercise with the simulation, followed by the use of this Concept Checker.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to distinguish between particle motion and wave motion for a transverse wave.
  • The student should be able to describes the meaning and relationships between wavelength, frequency, amplitude, ad speed.
  • The student be able to describe the energy changes of a particle of the medium as it steps through a complete up-and-down vibrational cycle.
