Matching Pairs: Wave Characteristics

The Matching Pairs: Wave Characteristics Concept Builder targets student understanding of the main characteristics of waves - wavelength, amplitude, period, frequency and speed. There are five activities in all. Each activity is a Matching Pair activity in which students match a wave quantity with a definition, a mathematical description, a short conceptual meaning, a unit, or a symbol. Question-specific help is provided for each of the five activities. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
