New HTML5 Translation of Molarity Sim

MolarityPeruvian Spanis

We are excited to bring the first (of many) translated #HTML5 simulations. Molarity in Peruvian Spanish is now available at https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/molarity/latest/molarity_es_PE.html. We along with many volunteer translators worked hard over the summer to get the translation utility ready. Look for many more #HTML5 translated sims to come!

New #HTML5 Hooke’s Law Sim!

Hooke's Law

In the new ‪#‎HTML5‬ Hooke’s Law simulation, students can flexibly explore relationships between applied force, spring force, spring constant, and displacement as they stretch and compress springs. They can simultaneously compare two different springs, or compare systems of springs connected in series and parallel. On the Energy screen, students can investigate force and energy plots and discover the effect of the spring constant and displacement on the potential energy stored in the spring.

Have You Seen Area Builder’s Video Primer?

AreaBuilder

See Area Builder‘s video primer to learn about how you can use this sim to teach students about area and perimeter. Students can explore with rectangular and irregular shapes, discover the relationship between area and perimeter, and apply fractional knowledge as they build shapes with a given area and perimeter.

Looking for HTML5 Sims in Another Language than English?

Translation Utility

We’ve begun beta testing the new HTML5 translation utility.  So far, so good as we’ve had good reports from our volunteer translators. Once we are finished beta testing, you’ll start seeing translated HTML5 sims and new sims, too!

Upcoming Hooke’s Law Sim Enters Beta Testing

Hooke's Law Preview

We’ve been working hard to bring more HTML5 simulations this fall. One of our new physics simulation, Hooke’s Law, is entering Beta testing. Each simulation is extensively tested with students before we make them available on our website. Look for the new simulations soon.
