In the teaching unit ‘Fast and Curious’ students investigate why we can distinguish if a vehicle is closing in or gaining distance by using our sense of hearing alone.

For this teaching unit the students should be at an age between 17 and 18 years, for certain knowledge in physics and mathematics is presumed.
