Studying Waves in Science

Science Olympiad season has begun again. We started meeting with our homeschool team, Creative Science Investigators (CSI) about a month ago. We're now knee deep in our science studies.

One of the events we're preparing for is Crave the Wave. This is the study of waves. You know, light waves, sound waves, and so many more.

Today, I'd like to share a really neat website from The Physics Tutorial that would be very useful to you in your homeschool in the study of waves.

Waves and Wave-Like Motion has prepared lessons for you in the study of waves, particularly sound and light waves. The lessons are perfect for your middle school student, though they would prove useful in supplementing grade or high school lessons too.

i am very interested in showing sound waves graphically, the way this image shows them, for a science museum exhibit on sound and music. Could you please tell me how that image was produced so i can use the same process on different sound files?
