Try our new HTML5 tablet/browser-compatible Fraction Matcher simulation. A great way to improve fraction skills for the younger student. Match shapes and numbers to earn stars in this fractions game. Students can challenge themselves at different levels, collecting stars as they improve their fraction skills. Choose between the “Fractions” and “Mixed Numbers” tabs for more learning fun.
Come to PhET’s workshop, Using PhET Interactive Simulations, at the ICCE 2014 conference in Toronto, Canada on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 10:30 AM. Presented by PhET’s Yuen-ying Carpenter, Bryce Gruneich, and Emily Moore, this workshop will provide an introduction to our 30 chemistry simulations that support students from middle school to undergraduate levels in developing conceptual models of macroscopic and microscopic phenomena through inquiry. You’ll learn strategies for effective use for teaching and learning – highlighting specific teaching approaches that target common student difficulties and scaffold student understanding. Additionally, we will provide guidance and feedback for writing effective questions and activities around PhET simulations.
And don’t forget to stop by our booth.
Due to some ongoing website issues, we will be performing maintenance on the PhET website over the next few nights (Mountain Daylight time). This will affect only parts of the site, specifically logging in, some activity pages, etc. It should not affect the simulations. We expect that the maintenance will last over an hour. During this time, some parts of PhET may experience periods of unavailability. If you experience persistent issues, please e-mail the PhET Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your patience.
Hot outside? Looking for something that will cool you off?
Try the Under Pressure simulation and explore pressure under and above water. See how pressure changes as you change fluids, gravity, container shapes, and volume.

Mix “virtual” summer drinks with the Concentration simulation. Watch your solution change color as you mix chemicals with water. Then check molarity with the concentration meter. What are all the ways you can change the concentration of your solution? Switch solutes to compare different chemicals and find out how concentrated you can go before you hit saturation!
Then have more fun by making your own lemonade or summer drink!
Over the 2013-14 school year, we were able to redesign and publish 16 new HTML5 versions of our simulations. And, even though school’s ending, PhET will be hard at work during the summer.
So please donate today and keep this important work on track. Together, we can make the draft version of Circuit Construction Kit a reality, and bring the many other simulations to HTML5 compatibility along with a more modern look and feel.
