The Physics Teacher
written by Wolfgang Christian and Francisco Esquembre
The paper Modeling Physics with Easy Java Simulations describes the use of the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling and authoring tool and shows how this tool can be used to teach mechanics concepts using computer modeling.  Although the modeling method can be used without computers, the use of computers allows students to study problems that are difficult and time consuming, to visualize their results, and to communicate their results with others.  The combination of computer modeling with theory and experiment can achieve insight and understanding that cannot be achieved with only one approach.
