Lesson Plan: Calculating Wave Motion Physics • Second Year of Secondary School

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use the wave speed formula, 𝑠 = 𝑓𝜆, to calculate the movement of waves of different frequencies and wavelengths.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • Use the formula 𝑠=𝑓𝜆 in all combinations,
  • determine wavelength, amplitude, period, and frequency from graphs of displacement against distance and against time.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • transverse waveforms,
  • wavelength,
  • amplitude.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • displacement as a function of time or distance.
