In this multi-day class, students will discover the properties of sound and use them to create their own "recycled" musical instruments. DAY ONE * What's a sound wave? * Qualities of Sound waves * Rubber band experiment * Chrome Music Lab experiment (high/low) DAY TWO * Water xylophone experiment (high/low) * Echoes and carrying sounds (loud/soft) * Soup can experiment (loud/soft) DAY THREE * Planning instruments (how will you meet each requirement?) * Graphic notation vs standard...
Students will be able to... * Define "vibration", "amplitude", "frequency", and "wavelength"; * Identify high and low sounds; * Identify loud and soft sounds; * Describe the connection between the amplitude and frequency of a sound wave and the quality of sound it will produce; * Create a plan for and build a home-made instrument that can demonstrate "high", "low", "loud", and "soft"; * Compose a song using high/low and loud/soft using graphic or standard notation.
Students may need to spend time outside of class working on their instruments or reviewing concepts from class.
Students are not mandated to use any particular materials to build their instruments, but should consider household supplies like cardboard, empty soup cans, paper clips, dried rice or beans, etc... to help to create their instruments. They may also want to have glue, tape, or other ways to fasten their pieces together. Please only use hot glue, superglue, or other potentially dangerous materials with adult permission and supervision. Students may want to follow along with the experiments, which I will demonstrate on camera. I will post learner "supply lists" in the classroom as the dates near, but objects can be easily found around the household and do not require purchase.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
