Grades 7 and Up

Topics in this properties of waves worksheet include:

  • Waves
  • Basic differences between longitudinal and transverse waves
  • Parts of a wave (crest, trough, amplitude, wavelength)
  • Analyzing waves for amplitude, frequency, and wavelength
  • Students to create their own waves from given amplitude, wavelength, and frequency data

(Please note: The questions represent an OVERVIEW of waves as intended by MS-PS4-1 and MS-PS4-2, so they do not include questions about wave interference and only the basic differences between longitudinal and transverse waves.)
