Daily TAKS Connection:Wave Types, Characteristics, and Interactions
IPC(5): The student knows the effects of waves on everyday life. The student is expected to:
(A) demonstrate wave types and their characteristics through a variety of activities such as modeling with ropes and coils, activating tunings forks, and interpreting data on seismic waves..
(B) demonstrate wave interactions including interference, polarization, reflection, refraction, and resonance within various materials.
Construct a two door, shutter fold foldable
Fold the paper along the solid fold lines (front side facing you)
Record your name, date and period on the reverse
Color the 2 doors (transverse wave, compression wave) each a different color
TASK: Following the instructions on the LH side under the transverse wave door of your foldable

When trying to catch a fish in water, a bear needs to take into account the way light bends as it moves from water into air or it will miss the fish and go hungry. The bending of light as it passes from one medium into another is known as –
Diverging lenses are useful to people who
suffer from nearsightedness because the
lenses can cause images of distant objects to
be focused on the retina. Lenses allow images
to be focused on the retina because of —
One tuning fork is struck and placed next to an identical fork. The two forks do not touch. The second tuning fork starts to vibrate because of –
A guitar player is seated next to a piano. The piano player strikes an E key on the piano. The guitarist reports that this causes the E string on his guitar to vibrate. What is the name of this phenomenon?
The image on the screen is inverted because light rays –
A. condense as they pass through the pinhole
B. travel through the opening in straight lines
C. refract as they strike the screen
D. are polarized by the materials of the screen
When a DVD is read, laser light touches the DVD surface and is then measured at location A. What allows light to return to location A after striking the DVD surface?
An empty cup was tightly covered with plastic
wrap, and a few grains of salt were sprinkled
on top of the plastic. When a tuning fork was
struck and placed slightly above the plastic
wrap, the salt began to move. Which
characteristic of waves does the movement
of the salt best demonstrate?
Calculate the velocity of the wave shown?
