Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Katherine Menchen and John R. Thompson
This paper describes results of an ongoing investigation into the understanding of sound, mainly among preservice K-12 teachers. Recent work has focused on identifying difficulties in understanding sound propagation and resonance phenomena. We have found that within this population the concept of propagation, especially from one solid object to another, is not well understood.
