We’ve been working hard on the Next-Generation PhET Sims. Our new partner, metacog, Inc., is unlocking the power of these enhanced sims, by linking up PhET’s emerging line of interoperable simulations with metacog deep-learning analytics services. With PhET plus metacog, you can capture student sim interactions, and gain insight on how students approach learning challenges with on-demand playback, automated rubric-based scoring, and real-time visualization capabilities.

We are busy working this summer to have more HTML5 sims ready for the 2015-2016 school year, as well as many other improvements to our website and teacher support and development.
We are excited to now have individual HTML5 sim pages where you can easily access sample learning goals (under About), Teacher Tips and Activities (under For Teachers), Related Simulations, and Software Requirements. With the new pulldown menus, everything about the simulation is on a single screen. There’s also a link to conveniently access the corresponding original JAVA/Flash sims and their translations.
And don’t forget to help bring more improvements and HTML5 sims by donating at:

Thanks for your support!
Use the #HTML5 Wave on a String to learn about wave properties. Watch a string vibrate in slow motion. Wiggle the end of the string and make waves, or adjust the frequency and amplitude of an oscillator. Adjust the damping and tension. The end can be fixed, loose, or open.
See us at our Booth #647 at the exhibit hall. And, on Friday, learn about how to use PhET Sims in your math classes with Karina Hansberry and Amanda McGarry.
Practical Strategies for Teaching with Interactive Computer Simulations

You can use interactive simulations (sims) to engage your students with math content and support their development of the CCSS mathematical practices. Learn practical strategies for integrating sims into your teaching and designing sim-based activities. Videos of teacher practices for effective sim use and lesson plans will be shared.
In the new #HTML5 Least-Squares Regression simulation, students can flexibly explore ideas related to correlation, best-fit lines, residuals, and outliers. Build a data set or use real-world data to discover the meaning of a correlation coefficient and determine when a linear fit is reasonable.
Least-Squares Regression is appropriate for any grade level that is studying scatter plots, best-fit lines, regression, or correlation, and is specifically aligned with Common Core State Standards in high-school mathematics.
PhET (http://phet.colorado.edu) will be unavailable from Friday, March 20 at 10:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time until Saturday, March 21 at 8:00 AM Mountain Daylight Time due to necessary maintenance performed by the University of Colorado Office of Information Technology.
We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
