Aligning EJS Simulations with the US High School Physics Teaching Standards 

written by Mario Belloni, Wolfgang Christian, and Francisco Esquembre

For the past thirty years, U.S. high school science instruction has evolved toward common teaching standards. Despite this trend, consistent, well organized multimedia-based curricular materials aligned to these standards are not available.  In order to address this need, we are creating a suite of interactive simulations using Easy Java Simulations with associated curricular materials and teacher resources.  These materials are freely available on the ComPADRE Digital Library and indexed to educational content standards making the materials easy for teachers to find, access, and use.
