KS3 Science (Physics): Sound

These live and interactive lessons are based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum, they will help students prepare for GCSE Physics or other similar qualifications.

The lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age. Small groups (capped at 10) ensure students get the opportunity to interact with the tutor and have their questions answered.

Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis. 

Lesson 1 (Tues 20 April): Introduction to sound – learn about the basic properties of sound: amplitude, frequency, loudness and pitch

Lesson 2 (Tues 27 April): Wave properties – learn how sound waves travel, how to calculate their speed and make use of their reflective properties

Lesson 3 (Tues 4 May): Hearing – learn how the ear works and what sometimes goes wrong

Lesson 4 (Tues 11 May): Microphones and speakers – learn how this technology works

Lesson 5 (Tues 18 May): Animals sounds – learn about the amazing variety of animal sounds and how and why they are used

Lesson 6 (Tues 25 May): Human sounds – learn how humans create and use sounds around the world
