The Slinky and Wave exercise is an interactive lecture that explains how to use a Slinky to demonstrate motion of P- and S-waves, wave reflection and standing waves. The demonstration is designed for use in an introductory geoscience course where wave properties are important such as geology, oceanography, or atmospheric sciences. The site includes teaching materials on P- and S-waves, standing waves ... Full description.

The Waves Through the Earth JAVA activity allows students to vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of 4 concentric regions of Earth. Students match fabricated data for travel times versus angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector. Tables are available for P and S rays superimposed on the 4-region model. Tables of data for P and S wave velocities, graphs of fabricated ... Full description.

This game has students simulate the propagation of S and P waves after an earthquake and use the lag between these to determine where in the simulation the earthquake occurred. Students stand in lines holding hands with those at the ends working as seismometers to record how long it takes P- and S-waves to reach them. On this Starting Point page, users can access information about the exercise's learning ... Full description.
