GPS for the Week:  SP4. Students will analyze the properties and applications of waves.
a. Explain the processes that results in the production and energy transfer of electromagnetic waves.
b. Experimentally determine the behavior of waves in various media in terms of reflection, refraction, and diffraction of waves.
c. Explain the relationship between the phenomena of interference and the principle of superposition.
d. Demonstrate the transfer of energy through different mediums by mechanical waves.
e. Determine the location and nature of images formed by the reflection or refraction of light.
