Sound is an important part of our lives, from basic communication via speech and hearing, to the use of microphones and transmitters to transfer sound across the world using mobile phones, and the use of ultrasound waves to detect masses and movement under water. The ‘Sound’ booklet provides an overview of the sources of sounds, how sounds interact with materials and how sounds and vibrations are detected, including the range and characteristics of human hearing. The activities give students an opportunity to apply these ideas and to consider ‘How Science Works’ aspects such as sources of uncertainty, or the limitations of sensing equipment.
