4.6.1.3 Reflection of waves (physics only)

Content

Waves can be reflected at the boundary between two different materials.

Waves can be absorbed or transmitted at the boundary between two different materials.

Students should be able to construct ray diagrams to illustrate the reflection of a wave at a surface.

Students should be able to describe the effects of reflection, transmission and absorption of waves at material interfaces.


WS 1.2 Use a variety of models such as representational, spatial, descriptive, computational and mathematical to solve problems, make predictions and to develop scientific explanations and understanding of familiar and unfamiliar facts.


MS 5a Use angular measures in degrees

MS 5c Calculate areas of triangles and rectangles, surface areas and volumes of cubes
