PhET – Interactive Simulations for Math and Science



WHO: Teachers looking for interactive simulations to use in science and math classes.

HOW: While not required, it’s worth the few seconds to register for an account. PhET is free, but there is an option for donations to help support. The teacher can sift through the large variety of topics to find what they are currently covering in class. These simulations could be projected in front of the class to work as a whole, or posted to a classroom website for individual or small group work.

WHEN: PhET would be useful during lectures or as assigned work. These simulations allow for experiments without needing to purchase a wide variety of supplies. The embed option makes it simple for teachers to add to their LMS of choice.
