NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory: Eyes on the Solar System ` - Jun 2, 2018

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


Micrometer Model ` - Dec 28, 2017

This interactive model is a great way to give students virtual practice in using a micrometer.  Perform measurements, then check your accuracy.


Concord Consortium: SmartGraphs ` - May 31, 2017

These digital SmartGraphs accept student inputs, then provide scaffolding to promote deep understanding of the meaning behind the graphs. Classroom tested.


Concord Consortium: Electrostatics ` - Mar 26, 2017

Exemplary digital lesson provides a rich way for students to visualize charge interaction and explore Coulomb's Law at the atomic level. Allow one full class period.


MIT Tech TV: Physics Demos ` - Sep 10, 2016

Beautifully-crafted videos to help kids visualize motion, wave interactions, electricity, and magnetism. Superb videography; easy to embed.


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.


EjsS Reader for Mobile Platforms ` - Jul 6, 2014
