Welcome to Science of Sound. This course is offered as a regular class Fall Semesters on the USU campus in Logan, Utah. It is also available over the internet Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, or as a yearlong independent-studies course. In each case, work is submitted using the internet. The only difference in the regular class held Fall semester is that students meet with the professor three times a week to discuss the material in the text. A teaching assistant is assigned to answer questions via the internet. The course consists of reading the text, supplementing concepts using the Internet, solving homework problems based on the reading, and taking exams over the internet. There are 8 modules representing 8 different aspects of sound. You will complete 5 of the 8 modules for the course (Modules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6). The other 3 modules (Modules 4, 7, and 8) are optional, but may be completed to increase your point total. To complete a module you will need to 1) read the chapters in the text associated with the module; 2) submit a homework assignment consisting of problems selected from each chapter; and 3) pass an exam based on the material presented in the module. Note: If you have any problems viewing the material in this course, make sure you have the Macromedia Flash and Real Player.
