How do you do PhET simulations?

Creating PhET Interactive Simulations Activities

  1. Define specific learning goals.
  2. Give only minimal directions on sim use.
  3. Connect and build on students’ prior knowledge & understanding.
  4. Encourage students to use sense-making and reasoning.
  5. Connect to and make sense of real-world experiences.
  6. Design collaborative activities.

What does PhET stand for?

Physics Education Technology
Does “PhET” stand for something? The name “PhET” was originally an acronym for “Physics Education Technology.” However, the PhET site now includes simulations about many other subjects besides physics, so the acronym is too limited.

What is Phet Colorado?

PhET Interactive Simulations, a project at the University of Colorado Boulder, is a non-profit open educational resource project that creates and hosts explorable explanations. Their stated mission is “To advance science and math literacy and education worldwide through free interactive simulations.”

How does angle affect projectile motion?

Higher launch angles have greater times in the air The time in air is determined by the initial vertical velocity. Since steeper launch angles have a larger vertical velocity component, increasing the launch angle increases the time in air.

Do PhET simulations still work?

The Java and Flash simulations will run on most PC, Mac, and Linux systems. Adobe has announced the end-of-life of Flash and beginning January 1, 2021, you will no longer be able to run PhET’s Flash sims on modern web browsers.

Is PhET simulation an app?

The PhET Simulations Android app is meant to provide educational simulations to a wide audience.

How many PhET simulations are there?

150 different simulations
With over 150 different simulations available, PhET Interactive Simulations is a large collection of virtual experiments, demonstrations, and visualizations for dozens of math and science topics (from kindergarten through graduate school).
