Tracker Video Modeling: Combining Simulations with Traditional Video Analysis ` - Aug 17, 2015

Tracker Video Analysis gives students a real edge over traditional video modeling. First, capture a digital file, calibrate scale, and define axes. Now the fun part: students define force expressions & initial conditions, then watch the model draw and overlay itself on the video. Great way to directly compare the model with real-world motion!


Periodic Table Live! ` - Mar 25, 2015

Excellent interactive resource for exploring the Periodic Table through image sets, videos, and 3D illustrations. Covers a broad range of information about the elements and their properties.


Concord Consortium: Phase Change ` - Mar 25, 2015

A very effective tool for helping students visualize the intermolecular attractions that underlie a phase change. Highlight an atom, view its trajectory, and see how the motion differs in each of the 3 primary phases. (Adaptable for grades 8-12).


EJS Simulations by High School Physics Teachers ` - Jan 2, 2015

Easy Java Simulations (EJS) are easy to use for any level of high school physics and physical science. Teachers and students are able to create computer models easily.


NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory: Eyes on the Solar System ` - Jan 2, 2015

NASA brings together a rich array of visualization tools for a 3D exploration of our cosmic neighborhood. Informative, interactive,and great fun!


EjsS Reader for Mobile Platforms ` - Jul 6, 2014

The EjsS Reader App lets users download, organize and run JavaScript simulations created with Easy JavaScript Simulations for use on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.


Graph Matching Motion Model ` - May 1, 2014

This inquiry-based simulation offers a powerful platform for helping students understand the shape and slope of motion graphs and how to interpret them. Your students will be doing a form of modeling as they "match" the motion of a red ball to that of a blue ball. Be careful -- this activity can be addictive!


SEI Clicker and Education Videos ` - Feb 1, 2014

Electronic student response systems have been shown to improve student engagement and attitudes toward learning. These short videos take an inside look at "clickers" in the classroom and how to use them to best advantage.


Create a Graph ` - Jan 23, 2013

Kids can easily create and print customized graphs to enhance their presentations. And it's free. Choose from 5 graph types.


Ejs Intro 1D Motion Lab Model ` - Dec 11, 2012

Exemplary resource provides step-by-step instructions for students to explore 1D motion through computer modeling. Requires no prior programming experience.
