Concept Checker for the Wave Addition Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Wave Addition Simulation consists of 20 questions organized into 5 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 Wave Addition Simulation.

The Wave Addition 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 distinguish between constructive and destructive interference.
  • The student be able to use the principle of superposition in order to determine the resultant wave or sum of two waves.
