Waves HandsOn need many Device

An open source physics at Singapore simulation based on codes written by Loo Kang WEE based on ideas from Boon Chien YAP.

Wave is an oscillation accompanied by a transfer of energy that travels through medium (space or mass)
Waves consist of oscillations or vibrations (of a physical quantity), around almost fixed locations.
Concepts illustrated in the simulations include student hands on tool kit to make waves using many devices line up.
There is also a mathematically generated wave to support students' ideas on wave.
My sincere gratitude for the tireless contributions of Francisco Esquembre, Fu-Kwun Hwang, Wolfgang Christian, Félix Jesús Garcia Clemente, Anne Cox, Andrew Duffy, Todd Timberlake and many more in the Open Source Physics community. I have designed much of the above based on their ideas and insights, and I thank the OSP community for which Singapore was honoured with 2015-6 UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education.
