PhET - Physics Education Technology at the University of Colorado

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Najeh Jisrawi (Faculty), Apr 13, 2012

This suite of applets and associated research are phenominal. I have been using them in my general physics courses for more than 4 years.

You can use the apps in what I call "experimental" mode to try to generate some data and allow students to do their own.

Technical Remarks:

You probably want to download the java applets to avoid difficulties over a slow network, and then have to make sure your computers are setup properly, but once that is done, it is smooth sailing.
