Journal of Chemical Education
written by Emily B. Moore, Julia Chamberlain, Robert Parson, and Katherine Perkins
This 2014 article in Journal of Chemical Education discusses how PhET chemistry simulations help students develop fluency across symbolic-level, macroscopic-level, and particulate-level representations. The authors present examples and resources to support use of PhET simulations in chemistry courses ranging from middle school-high school to college level.  PhET's chemistry collection aims to make the invisible visible, scaffold the inquiry process, and provide dynamic access to multiple representations. The article also describes how to implement chemistry simulations within the chemistry classroom and highlights two simulations for chemistry, "Molecule Polarity" and "Beer's Law Lab". Many of the original chemistry animations and sims have been converted to HTML5.
