PhET tilbyr morosame, interaktive og forskingsbaserte simuleringar av fysiske fenomen heilt gratis. Vi trur at den forskingsbaserte tilnærminga vår, inkludert funn frå tidlegare forsking og vår eiga testing, gjer elevane i stand til å lage koplingar mellom observerte fenomen og den underliggjande vitskapen og gir dei ei djupare forståing av og glede over den fysiske verda.

More About PhET's Design

To help students engage in science and mathematics through inquiry, PhET simulations are developed using the following design principles:

  • Encourage scientific inquiry
  • Provide interactivity
  • Make the invisible visible
  • Show visual mental models
  • Include multiple representations (e.g., object motion, graphs, numbers, etc.)
  • Use real-world connections
  • Give users implicit guidance (e.g., by limiting controls) in productive exploration
  • Create a simulation that can be flexibly used in many educational situations

Several tools in the simulations provide an interactive experience:

  • Click and drag to interact with simulation features
  • Use sliders to increase and decrease parameters
  • Choose between options with radio buttons
  • Make measurements in your experiments with various instruments – rulers, stop-watches, voltmeters, and thermometers.

As users interact with these tools, they get immediate feedback about the effect of the changes they made. This allows them to investigate cause-and-effect relationships and answer scientific questions through exploration of the simulation. For more information, visit our research page.
