These web pages provide background information about and help with using the PhET simulations for teaching and learning. These research-based, interactive computer simulations in physics, chemistry, math, and other sciences can be run online or downloaded for free from the PhET website. They emphasize the connections between real-life phenomena and the underlying science, and help make the visual and conceptual models of expert scientists accessible to students.
This SERC Pedagogical Module provides a background on the PhET simulations, the research foundation behind the simulations, and advice on how they can be used. There are also a series of example activities based on PhET simulations.
The SERC web site includes a large collection of similar pedagogical modules of best practices in science teaching, and related example activities of these teaching methods.
