Alignment to NGSS Standards

 

NGSS Standard MS-PS4-3 - Waves and their Applications

Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.

NGSS Standard HS-PS4-2 - Waves and their Applications

Evaluate questions about the advantages of using digital transmission and storage of information.

Real Data, Not Simulations

Every activity involves real-world data collection of physical phenomenon so your students can learn hands-on.

Backed by Research

Lessons were developed in projects with the Department of Education Institute of Educational Sciences and the National Science Foundation SBIR program
