Unit 8.3: How Sound and Light Feed Our Senses

In this unit, students learn about different types of waves, how they travel, and how they interact with objects in their path. Not only do they learn about the waves themselves, but how humans are designed to perceive waves and other external stimuli in our environment. Students apply their knowledge of waves to solve the sound and light problems at a local concert venue. Along with satisfying the desires of the concert-goers, they must also consider the needs and desires of the surrounding community who are impacted by this concert venue.
