Waves and Information

Wave Properties in Various Media
Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.

Digital Transmission and Storage of Information
Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.

Wave-Particle Duality of Electromagnetic Radiation
Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.

Absorption of Electromagnetic Radiation
Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter. 

Waves and Information Technology
Communicate technical information about about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy.
