We are learning to: demonstrate how waves transfer energy. We are looking for: a disturbance or variation that transfers energy from one point to another point in a medium. Transverse waves- wave and medium move in direction that is perpendicular to each other Longitudinal waves- wave and medium move in same direction

We are learning to: describe the properties of waves. We are looking for: Wavelength-distance from crest to crest (transverse wave), or from compression to compression (longitudinal wave) Frequency-number of waves that pass a given point each second Amplitude-distance from rest position to the crest (transverse wave); measures how compressed the particles of the medium are (longitudinal wave); determines the amount of energy of each wave

3 We are learning to demonstrate how waves transfer energy. We are looking for how waves interact with an object or other waves. They either: Transmit-wave energy passes through an object. Reflect-wave energy bounces off an object. Refract – wave changes speed as it passes from one medium to another medium Diffract – wave spreads out as it passes through an opening or around the edge of a barrier Absorb-wave energy is taken in by an object they encounter. Interference-wave energy of multiple waves is combined.
