Visualizing Sound with an Electro-Optical Eardrum
Truncale, Nicholas P.; Graham, Michelle T.
Physics Teacher, v52 n2 p76-79 Feb 2014
As science educators, one of our important responsibilities is ensuring students possess the proper tools and accommodations to examine phenomena in a laboratory setting. It is our job to innovate methods enabling students with disabilities to participate in all aspects of investigations. This article describes an experimental accommodation allowing a deaf student to determine and plot the sensitivity of an electro-optical eardrum in the sound range of 10-150 Hz.
