Concept Checker for the Standing Wave Maker Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Standing Wave Maker Simulation consists of 32 questions organized into 8 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 Standing Wave Maker Simulation.

The Standing Wave Maker Simulation is accompanied by a classroom-ready exercise.  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 identify the harmonic number of a standing wave from the number of nodes and antinodes displayed in its pattern.
  • The student be able to mathematically relate the various harmonic frequencies for standing waves in a rope.
