Making Waves: A Simulation and Modeling Computer-Tool for Studying Wave Phenomena
written by Joseph Snir
Examines the use of a computer simulation program as a tool to help in the understanding of wave phenomena. After analyzing some of the main difficulties and common misconceptions about waves, features of the "Making Waves" software package are described. Figures showing a typical monitor display are presented.
