Paper Abstract

Using like basic idea that the similar equations corresponds to the similar models and they can explain similar phenomena with characteristic own, a strategy has been developed for the integrated treatment of the waves teaching. The analogies pointed out by the mathematical equations allow unifying topics like that of the propagation of the electromagnetic energy, the propagation of the energy through the matter and the mechanic-quantum treatment of the systems evolution. The wealth of the analysis of the meanings of the wave functions as well as of the coefficients involved in the equations allows to carry out a conceptual synthesis of the natural phenomenology. Results of the application of this strategy in basic university courses are commented.
