# Ch 8: GED Science - Sound and Light Waves: Tutoring Solution

The Sound and Light Waves chapter of this GED Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about sound and light waves. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the properties of sound and light waves required in a typical GED science course.

## How it works:

• Begin your assignment or other GED science work.
• Identify the sound and light waves concepts that you're stuck on.
• Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
• Press play, watch and learn!
• Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
• As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

## Who's it for?

This chapter of our GED science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about sound and light waves and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

• Struggle with understanding wave properties, vibrations, nature of light, color, dispersion, Doppler Effect, wave-particle duality or any other sound and light waves topic
• Have limited time for studying
• Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
• Prefer learning science visually
• Find themselves failing or close to failing their sound and light waves unit
• Want to get ahead in GED science

## Why it works:

• Engaging Tutors: We make learning about sound and light waves simple and fun.
• Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
• Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live GED science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
• Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about sound and light waves on the go!
• Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
