What is a transverse wave? When particles move perpendicular to the direction the wave is going.
What is crest? The point at which the wave is at its highest.
What is through? The point at which the wave is lowest.
What is a longitudinal wave? When particles move back and forth in the wave.
What is compression? When particles get closer in a wave while moving back and forth.
