Studying the gravitational physics of the solar system is difficult in real life. This paper describes four pedagogical computer models that we have developed for active inquiry instruction in Singapore.  These models are now being pilot tested in Singapore and are being improved through feedback from students and teachers. We hope other teachers will find these simulations useful and further customized them for the educational community.

Enabling Gravity Physics by Inquiry using Easy Java Simulation:

Is Based On Point Charge Electric Field in 1D Model

thanks to prof andrew, we customized to gravitational 1D and earth moon computer models as in the paper.
thanks! prof andrew duffy!

Is Based On Ejs Open Source Earth and Moon Model by Francisco Esquembre

thanks to prof paco, we customized and use java 3d to render this great tool for geostational orbit model.!
thanks prof Francisco Esquembre!

relation by wee lookang
Is Based On Kepler System Model

thanks to prof todd, we customized to a model that is specially tailored to the teaching of the Advanced Level Physics hopefully drawing on the principles of inquiry to find period and radius.
the students would very intrigued by the different planes of the planets of orbits and claim of being like a scientist!
youtube can be found here! hear it from the students :)
enjoy!
