Sound Energy

Controlling sound is important to health, mood, entertainment and especially communication. Mark Mothersbaugh, an original member of the rock band Devo and an Ohio native whose work has been featured at the Akron Art Museum, was the inspiration for this unit. Both he and the museum are interested in the art of sound. A beginning understanding of the basics about the transmission, reflection and absorption of sound waves would be useful to anyone. This unit is designed to support and focus your lessons.
