Wonderful Waves
This lesson demonstrates that simple models can be used to represent real world objects that are not easily brought into a classroom. Students will create a wave model using two different types of simple models. The approach of creating, describing, and understanding qualitative models is critical because it is the type of learning that students will most closely relate to their experiences.
