    In this recorded professional learning session, Greta Dromgool and Ted Cizadlo will build your confidence to teach about the Physical World. The New Zealand Curriculum achievement objectives for this area are incredibly broad. By using simple, everyday examples, we will take you step by step through how you can teach the concepts of waves.

    I liked the real-world connections.

    To join our discussion about teaching physics, register in our online forum on Slack. In this forum, we share and discuss ideas and resources for teaching science.

    Nature of science

    This webinar mentions several models we can use to help us to understand about waves. In science, a model is a representation of an idea, an object or a system that is used to describe and explain phenomena that cannot be experienced directly. Models are central to what scientists do, both in their research as well as when communicating their explanations. Learn more about models in the article Scientific modelling.

    The Science Learning Hub’s waves concept has a range of articles and activities including a great introductory article Waves and energy – wave basics.

    There are so many different concepts and topics connected to waves – you might be interested in sound, light or tsunamis. All these different contexts require students to understand the basics of how waves work.

    This was the last in our series of Physics made simple webinar series. The previous ones can be viewed here:

    The Science Learning Hub team has curated two collections of resources to help with your teaching: one with a focus on physics and the other is an introductory collection to help with teaching waves. Log in to make one or both of these collections part of your private collection. Click on the copy icon, and then you can add additional content and notes and make other changes. Registering an account on the Science Learning Hub is easy and free – sign up with your email address or Google account. Look for the Sign in button at the top of each page.

    Fantastic demo!
