This video will help you prepare to conduct the Sonic Ranger lab. Viewing is not the same thing as understanding. In class we provided you a sheet of questions to check your understanding of the video content (also available below). Answer the questions completely and accurately to ensure your understanding of the lab and using your lab time efficiently. This may require you to stop and/or rewind the video multiple times (remember the Turbo Encabulator).
