overview-screenshot

 

For software developers: our educational HTML5 apps & libraries are open source and ready to use in your projects: http://bit.ly/phet-development-overview

Learn how to:

  1. Check out the PhET HTML5 libraries and simulations from GitHub
  2. Create new simulations
  3. Understand & customize code for our simulations
  4. Submit bug fixes for our simulations
  5. Embed a PhET simulation in your own website
  6. Use powerful libraries for rendering, audio, touch/mouse/pen input, geometry, MVC, UI and more.
  7. Communicate with PhET developers and others developing with PhET libraries

 

Hope to see you there!

New HTML5 Balancing Chemical Equations Simulation

Balancing Chemical Equation

Try the new HTML5 Balancing Chemical Equations simulation! How do you know if a chemical equation is balanced? What can you change to balance an equation? Play a game to test your ideas. Students will learn to:

  • Balance a chemical equation.
  • Recognize that the number of atoms of each element is conserved in a chemical reaction.
  • Describe the difference between coefficients and subscripts in a chemical equation.
  • Translate from symbolic to molecular representations of matter.

Thank you American Association of Chemistry Teachers for your generous donation that supported the development of the new HTML5 Balancing Chemical Equations.
