This is aimed at a low ability KS3 class, and has a Ghostbusters theme.
Pupils enter the room and begin by doing a wordsearch.
The teacher, using a diagram, explains how to read a wave from an oscilloscope, including keywords. A oscilloscope can also be used to demonstrate the different sounds and waves produced.
Pupils then do a mini-experiment using a ruler, to investigate pitch and amplitude, to ensure that they understand the meaning of these words.
Pupils then use a template the draw wave diagrams.
There is then a task where pupils read descriptions of sound and match these to wave diagrams.
Finally in teams pupils complete a small quiz.
There are two homeworks available, which I let them chose between, both are experiments that they can do at home.
