# Julian Springer Lesson Plan 10/01/18

## Field Study Teacher: Julian Springer School: Big Picture School

Grade Level: High School Number of Students in Class: 13
Unit: Your Brain on Music Lesson Duration: 55 mins
Day, Date, and Time of Lesson: 9/28/18
1. Objective(s):
Students will learn about waves and their propagation through different mediums. Specifically we
will focus on water and sound wave propagation.

In this lesson, students will teach the rest of the class about one specific feature of waves, and
demonstrate their understanding through their 5 minute presentation (refraction, diffraction,
frequency, wavelength, amplitude, transverse waves, longitudinal waves, surface waves,
constructive and destructive interference, doppler effect).

By monday students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of the above concepts by
filling out a worksheet on the material.

Content Area:
Science

Standard:
High School, Standard 1. Physical Science

4. Students can use the full range of science and engineering practices to make sense of natural
phenomena and solve problems that require understanding how waves are used to transfer energy
and information.

10. Waves have characteristic properties and behaviors.

Evidence Outcomes:
a. Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the
frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media. (HS-PS4-1) (Clarification
Statement: Examples of data could include electromagnetic radiation traveling in a vacuum and
glass, sound waves traveling through air and water, and seismic waves traveling through the
Earth.) (Boundary Statement: Limited to algebraic relationships and describing those relationships
qualitatively.)
3. Learning Target(s):
I will understand how waves propagate, through and interact with, different mediums and
interfaces.

4. Assessment:
Formative:
Class will start with a check in on how students understand wave function.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of one aspect of waves through their presentations.
Summative:
Presentations will be peer graded for completeness and understanding of concepts. They will also
Homework will consist of a series of questions testing students on each of the aspects of how
waves function and propagate.
5. Materials:
Whiteboard and markers
Projector for presentations
Handout for peer assessment
Handout for homework
6. Essential Questions or Big Picture Statement:
How do waves propagate?
What happens when a wave gets to an interface with another medium?
How do the frequency, amplitude, wavelength, and speed effect how a wave behaves?
7. Introduction/Anticipatory Set:
Once we understand how waves travel through matter, we can understand the world around us;
from music, to light, to earthquakes and the radio, waves are all around us and they define how we
interact with each other and the world.
8. Step-by-Step Lesson Process:
Introduction and Check-in:
Assess how students are doing, and how they feel about their presentations and knowledge
coming in to the class. Explain rubric for peer assessment. Hand out assessment sheets. Assign
order of presentations.
Presentations:
Students will present for 5 minutes, 2 minutes for questions
