Sound Wave Oscilloscope – Scaled Up

Scaling up an experiment allows students to compare the data gathered from different forms of lab work to see if, how and why results may change when the size of the experimental components is altered.


Scaling up and experiment requires students to look at the logistics of an experiment and determine the best fit and application of the tools available to them. It’s very good practice for students interested in engineering and also forms an excellent, meaningful linkage between math and science.
