Warm Up na {APK - diagnostic assmt.} What is a wave? Sketch a wavew and write down everything you know about waves. {FM}sktech 3 kinds of waves {FM}Draw a transverse wave and show amplitude and wavelength. Same for longitudinal wave. {FM}What is the principle of superposition? Define constructive and destructive interference.
Presentation na DI: Define waves- transverse, longitudinal and torsional waves. Authentic demo - students line up and end person pushes. DI: Teach amplitude, wavelength, YouTube videos DI: Mopdel Huygen's principle, students sketch in thier notebooks. teach principle of wavefronts DI: show superposition of waves - contrast constructive and destructive interference. Model refraction - why waves turn.
