Overview: Sound! What is it? Where does it come from? These questions and more will be dealt with in this unit focused on the transfer of energy via sound waves. There are quite a few demonstrations in this unit. We will focus on sound creation, properties and applications including music and musical instruments.

Useful Tips: I would highly recommend that any student with a sensitivity to sound seek me out as soon as possible. ALSO, be sure to take note (written or otherwise) of all demonstrations and activities. They will be instrumental (pun intended!) in the assessment of this unit!
