In this fascinating title, readers explore how light and sound waves transfer information. From telescopes that extend our sense of sight to satellites that help us communicate across large distances, patterns of waves transfer information in many ways. A link to interactive activities online plus an activity in the book allow readers to use what they have learned about waves to engineer wave patterns that communicate across distances. Teacher’s guide available.

Waves and Information Transfer

“I am recommending�Catch a Wave: Waves and Information Transfer as an excellent book on a hard to find topic for a grade 3–6�classroom. What�makes it an exceptional book is that it deals with explaining how waves and wavelengths are used in 21st Century technology. Although many books about sound and other waves exist, finding�information�that explains our wireless�world is hard,�especially when you are looking for it to be explained simply to children. This book also contains activities that could be easily�incorporated into an�existing curriculum.” - NSTA Recommends, 05/17
