Stingray Chaser

Free stingrays and remove harmful algae from the ocean. After removing enough debris from the stingrays, you will be asked to select the correct answer to continue.




Pinball

Vocabulary Pinball Click on the red flipper buttons to keep the ball in play. Try to hit all of the letters with the ball to spell a word. Next, choose the correct definition for the word. A correct answer gives a free ball and an incorrect takes a ball away. Hold down and release the green button to launch the ball! Try all of the lists or register to make your own!




Word Find

Play the classic Word Search and find game.




Word Scramble - Words Only

Solve the scrambled words by moving the tiles around. Use the vocabulary definition or math answers to provide you the hint you need!




Word Scramble - Problems and Definitions

Solve the scrambled words by moving the tiles around. Use the vocabulary definition or math answers to provide you the hint you need!




Hangman

Play hangman with your words. Guess letters to form words from the lists that are added by people just like you! Practice your classroom lists.




List Content

Ch. 6 List 1 (7th)

  • node -- a point of zero amplitude on a standing wave
  • antinode -- a point of maximum amplitude on a standing wave
  • decibel -- a unit used to compare the loudness of different sounds
  • Doppler effect -- the change in frequency of a wave as its source moves in relation to an observer
  • long. wave -- a wave that moves a medium in a direction parallel to the direction in which the wave travels
  • interferece -- the interaction between waves that meet
  • pitch -- a description of how a sound is perceived as high or low
  • crest -- the highest part of a transverse wave
  • density -- the measurement of how much mass of a substance is contained in a given volume
  • compression -- the part of a longitudinal wave where the particles of the medium are close together
  • intensity -- the amount of energy per second carried through a unit area by a wave
  • amplitude -- the height of a transverse wave from the center to a crest or trough
  • diffraction -- the bending or spreading of waves as the move around a barrier or pass through an opening
  • energy -- the ability to do work or cause change
  • loudness -- Perception of the energy of a sound

Chapter 6 List 1

  • air pressure -- the pressure caused by the weight of a column of air pushing down on an area
  • conduction -- the transfer of thermal energy from one particle of matter to another
  • thermal energy -- the total kinetic and potential energy of all the particles of an object
  • anemometer -- an instrument used to measure wind speed
  • convection -- the transfer of thermal energy by the movement of a fluid
  • temperature -- how hot or cold something is
  • altitude -- elevation above sea level
  • aneroid baromet -- an instrument that measures changes in ari pressure with using a liquid
  • conv. current -- the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfer heat from one part of a fluid to another
  • water vapor -- water in the form of a gas
  • thermomoeter -- an instrument used to measure temperature

Chapter 6 List 2 (7th)

  • rarefaction -- the part of a longitudinal wave where the particles of the medium are far apart
  • trough -- the lowest part of a transverse wave
  • const. interfer -- the interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with an amplitude larger than the amplitude of either of the individual waves
  • mech. wave -- a wave that requires a medium through which to travel
  • transverse wave -- a wave that moves the medium at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels
  • vibration -- a repeated back and forth or up and down motion
  • medium -- the material through which a wave travels
  • standing wave -- a wave that appears to stand in one place, even though it is two waves interfering as they pass through each other
  • wave -- a disturbance that transfers energy from place to place
  • dest. interer -- the interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with an amplitude smaller than the amplitude of either of the individual waves

Chapter 6 List 2 (8th Gr)

  • local winds -- winds that blow over short distances
  • density -- the measurement of how much mass of a substance is contained in a given volume
  • infrared rad. -- electromagnetic waves with wavelengths that are longer than visible light but shorter than microwaves
  • electrmag. wave -- a wave that can transfer electric and magnetic energy through the vacuum of space
  • land breeze -- the flow of air from land to a body of water
  • barometer -- an instrument used to measure changes in air pressure
  • ionosphere -- the lower part of the thermosphere
  • global winds -- winds that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances
  • radiation -- the transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves
  • latitude -- the distance in degrees north or south of the equator
  • exosphere -- the outer layer of the thermosphere
  • heat -- the transfer of thermal energy from a warmer object to a cooler object
  • sea breeze -- the flow of cooler air from over an ocean or lake toward land
