This paper describes the course Acoustics: Physics of Sound, which teaches the science of acoustics to Audio Technology majors. Pedagogically this course seeks to be more rigorous than typical introductory courses to non-science majors, yet also avoids the fully calculus-based of higher level engineering courses. Audio students’ salient strengths, including familiarity with critical listening, as well as software and microphones, can be leveraged to foster deeper understanding in the language they already know - that of sound itself.
