MythBusters, Musicians, and MP3 Players: A Middle School Sound Study
Putney, Ann
Science Scope, v34 n7 p55-62 Mar 2011
Create your own speakers for an MP3 player while exploring the science of sound. Review of science notebooks, students' intriguing cabinet designs, and listening to students talk with a musician about the physics of an instrument show that complex concepts are being absorbed and extended with each new iteration. Science that matters to students makes its own points and reaches everyone. (Contains 8 figures and 5 resources.)
