(AW, JP and HD building a radio)
For light and sound, students had to design and build a radio. Building a radio will help determine to find the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves, as well as which type is used in AM radio transmission. If given a sinusoidal wave, students should find the amplitude and frequency of the signal. Also, this project will help explain how we use a frequency signal.
Students will build their own radio while understanding the functions of a frequency and signaling through electrical components .
