Spectral Sounds: Investigating the spectrum of sound and wave phenomena (iStage 2

Spektrale Klänge: Experiemente rund um Klangspektren und Wellenphänomene (iStage 2)

Music is popular with nearly every student and many of them even know how to play an instrument themselves. The teaching unit ‘Spectral Sounds’ uses music to help students investigate wave phenomena and behaviour in physics and science. Using microphones and apps of their smartphones as well as various musical instruments the students visualise acoustics and measure and analyse the recorded spectrums of sound.

For this teaching unit the students should be at an age between 16 and 18 years, for certain knowledge in physics, music and maths is presumed.

The project is taken from the brochure ‘iStage 2: Smartphones in Science Teaching’ from the topic ‘ears’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge (Mail to or downloaded. It was developed by 20 teachers from 14 countries around Europe. The project was proudly supported by SAP.
