Main Article Content
In this paper we describe the construction and application of a simple and inexpensive measurement tool that can be used in the improvement of the demonstration of wave-phenomena, and can help studensts to understand interference in physics education. Studying or even redesigning of the algorithm controlling the measurement and recording the data can give students an insight into an algorithmic thinking process and helps in implementing programming skills obtained in other classes.
