Models in Technology and Science by Bernie Zubrowski.

The focus of this investigation is on mechanical waves. Students explore how waves can be made in tanks of water, with frames of soap film, with Slinkies, and a vibrating doorbell. A model for studying wave motion is made from dowels and tape to investigate wave movement in a more systematic manner. Plus, various characteristics and properties of waves are introduced as student move through these explorations.
