Create your own physics simulations for Tablets using Easy Java/Javascript Simulations Documents

Main Document

Create your own physics simulations for Tablets using Easy Java/Javascript Simulations 

written by Francisco Esquembre, Félix J. García Clemente, Wolfgang Christian, and Mario Belloni

We introduce a major version of the successful Easy Java Simulations modeling tool that allows physics teachers to create, share, and distribute Java simulations with a very affordable level of training. This backwards compatible, new release of EJS, now renamed EjsS, is also able to create simulations that run in HTML-enabled browsers, using algorithms written in Javascript. This means that simulations created with this new version of EjsS can run in virtually any computer or mobile platform, including smartphones and tablets. And the level of difficulty for the author remains the same. We have also created a Reader App for Android and iOS that allows a user to collect and organize a number of such simulations for use with students, on- or off-line. When online, the Reader App connects to the OSP collection at the comPADRE digital library, for the download of additional ready-to-use, tablet-enabled simulations.
