Level 1 Gone with the Wind
Week 6 Problem Set
Name: _________________
Essential Extensions are mandatory, giving the student the understanding they need to grasp
the main concept of the course. We recommend that all essential extensions are completed before
attempting the problem set.
❏ Properties of Waves- GCSE physics lesson on waves
❏ Waves Introduction – physics revision video introducing the concept of waves
❏ Wave Motion- FuseSchool explanation on how waves propagate and its properties
❏ Measurement
❏ Data Analysis
❏ Calculations
Explorational Extensions are optional, allowing a student to look more deeply at a topic. We
recommend that students do these after completing the problem set if they enjoy the topic.
❏ Amplitude, Periods, & Frequency- Khan Academy detailed view of wave properties
❏ Calculations of Waves (Advanced) – The Science Classroom video on calculations of
