Wave Hello

Unit 5: Waves
Lesson 1 of 15

Objective: Students define a wave and apply concepts such as wavelength, frequency and velocity to wave problems.

Big Idea: The velocity of a wave can be determined by multiplying the wavelength times the frequency or by dividing the distance the wave travels by the time it takes to travel a that distance.
