Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Calculator Pad, Vibrations and Waves, Problem Sets WM6 - WM9

Calculator Pad problem sets make for awesome problem-solving practice. They provide problems with random numbers, an answer field, and lots of help. Enter an answer and check it; correct it if it's wrong. Problem Sets WM6 - WM9 includes problems of varying difficulty which require the use of the v = f•lambda equation. Tap one of the Help links if you're having trouble. 


Minds On Physics, Wave Motion: Mission WM4 - Wavelength, Frequency, and Speed

Minds On Physics will give you a mental work-out as you make an effort to work out the meaning of concepts and the relationships among concepts. This one is a perfect follow-up to the video. Give it a try. Tap the Help button (textbook icon) as needed. Learn!


Concept Builder: Waves and Sound - Rocking the Boat

This Concept Builder includes an analysis similar to that done near the end of the video on Slide 7. You will receive immediate feedback and chances to correct answers when wrong.

Physics Classroom Tutorial: Vibrations and Waves Chapter, Lesson 2 - The Wave Equation

Our written tutorial pages provide a thorough, easy-to-understand, common-sense approach to Physics topics. This particular page addresses the same topics covered in the video. As such, it makes a great reference for a quick check-up or clarification of an idea.
