Color Vision

In this simulation, students create a rainbow by mixing red, green, and blue light. They change the wavelength of a monochromatic beam or filter white light and can view the light as a solid beam, or see the individual photons.

Learning objectives could include:

*Determine what colour the person sees...


With this simulation, students build an understanding of solution concentration by varying amounts of solute, solvent, and solution. Experimenting with several different chemicals in solid and concentrated solution form, students can develop qualitative and quantitative relationships.

Energy Skate Park Basics

This simulation allows students to learn about conservation of energy with a skater dude! Students can explore different tracks and investigate the relationship between the kinetic energy, potential energy, and thermal energy of the skater. They can also build their own tracks, ramps and jumps for the skater.


Forces and Motion Basics

This simulation allows students to explore the forces at work when pulling against a cart, and pushing a refrigerator, crate, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change friction and see how it affects the motion of objects.

Learning outcomes include:

*Identify whether...

Fraction Matcher

Fraction Matcher gives students the opportunity to explore the concept of fractions. The “Fractions Screen” contains eight levels of matching fractions using fractions less than one up to improper fraction representations for fractions greater than one. The “Mixed Number Screen” concentrates upon fractions greater...

Graphing Lines

Graphing Lines gives the opportunity for students to explore the parameters of a linear equation; how modifying the graph affects the equation and how modifying the equation affects the graph. Students can draw reference lines y=x and y=-x to help with their deliberations. Students may change the point of...

Gravity Force Lab

This simulation allows students to visualise the gravitational force that two objects exert on each other. It is possible to change properties of the objects in order to see how that changes the gravitational force between them.

The simulation can be used to:

*Relate gravitational force to the masses...


This simulation explores the factors which determine the concentration of a solution. It illustrates the relationships between moles, litres and molarity by adjusting the amount of solute and solution volume.

The moles of solute and the volume of solution (water) can be changed using sliders to make...

Molecules and Light

This simulation can be used to explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere.

Sample learning objectives include:

*Explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere

*Identify that absorption of light depends on the molecule and the type of light

*Relate the...

PH Scale Basics

With this simulation students can test the pH of everyday liquids such as coffee, spit, and soap to determine whether each is acidic, basic, or neutral. They can also investigate how adding more of a liquid or diluting with water affects pH.

Sample learning outcomes include:

*Determine if a solution...
