Sand Vibration Patterns - Chladni Plate
Hey kids! Go rest your hands on a speaker playing loud music. Feel the sound vibrations? Good. Now you might want to adjust your volume for this one.Sound frequencies produce a variety of increasingly intricate resonance patterns. And if you sprinkle sand or salt on a metal plate that is vibrating from these sound frequencies, you can see the patterns.
Sand on a rectangular metal plate shows the resonance patterns at specific frequencies of oscillation.
Data analysis: as real world as it gets
In Data Analysis: As Real World As It Gets, we feature resources for teaching about data and statistics as supported by the NCTM Standards (NCTM, 2000). Data collection and analysis can be an avenue into the meaningful mathematics and problem-solving skills needed by students in the twenty-first century. And an answer to the student question, Why do we have to study math? can be found when teaching mathematics with a real-world statistics approach.
