This database is a collection of teacher-created lessons and activities designed to be used with interactive physics simulations developed by PhET (Physics Education Technology). Users can browse the materials or search by topic, level, and resource type. All materials may be freely downloaded and include lesson plans, labs, homework problems, demonstrations, and short concept questions. Some are intended to be used in a computer lab as students explore a specific PhET simulation; others offer content support and concept extension. A wide range of topics are available, including Newton's Laws, electricity, light, and quantum physics.

PhET Teacher Ideas & Activities: Browse Activities:
Contains PhET Teacher Ideas & Activities: Wave Unit
This is a complete unit of instruction on the topic of Waves for use in an introductory high school physics course. It includes lesson plans, labs, lecture presentations, homework problems, and clicker questions. Some of the materials were designed to coordinate with specific PhET interactive simulations.relation by Bruce Mason
Contains PhET Teacher Ideas & Activities: Applications of Sinusoidal Functions
This is a high school physics lesson plan designed for use with the PhET simulation "Wave on a String". Students apply trigonometry and analyze how amplitude, frequency, and tension influence the movement of the oscillating string.relation by Bruce Mason
