Concept Checker for the Simple Wave Simulator

Our Concept Checker for the Simple Wave Simulator 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 Simple Wave Simulator.

The Simple Wave Simulator is accompanied by a classroom-ready exercise titled Exploring Waves.  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 the particle motion and the wave motion for transverse and longitudinal waves.
  • The student be able to describe the various properties of waves, such as wavelength, amplitude, frequency, and speed.
