Concept Checker for Slinky Wave Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Force simulation consists of 24 questions organized into 6 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 the use of the Slinky Wave Simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to describe the effect of damping and free- and fixed-end reflection upon the motoin of a wave.
  • The student be able to identify interdependence of tension, density, wavelength, period, and wave speed.
