How do you determine if that website is a quality simulation? Does it truly promote inquiry or do students always get the same results? We will compare different online simulations for science and math (like PhET) and explore complete lessons ready for you to use immediately.

Computer simulations can help fill this gap by allowing students to manipulate variables and experiment in ways that they never could before.
