PhET Simulation: Isotopes and Atomic Mass Relations

Physics Front Related Resources

PhET Simulation: Isotopes and Atomic Mass accompanies PhET Teacher Activities: Modeling Isotopes
relation created by Caroline Hall

This is a lesson plan appropriate for Grades 7-10, created specifically to accompany the "Isotopes and Atomic Mass" simulation. It is very effective at guiding beginning students through an exploration of the atomic nucleus and factors that affect the stability of an atom.


PhET Simulation: Isotopes and Atomic Mass is by the same author and covers a similar topic as PhET Simulation: Nuclear Fission
relation created by Caroline Hall

A link to the PhET simulation "Nuclear Fission", which would be beneficial as a companion resource to "Isotopes and Atomic Mass".
