Stay Tuned Lab Sound Waveform Models

Published on 09/01/2012

Activity Overview

In this activity, students' will record the sound waveform of a tuning fork and analyze the waveform to determine frequency, period and amplitude information. They will model the waveform using trigonometric functions.
This activity has been modified for TI-Nspire with the data in the activity file.

You can use the file as is or if you want the students to collect their own data, you can do that within the file.
