Author:University of Colorado
Description: Dozens of free interactive, research-based simulations of mathematical phenomena, from arithmetic, estimation, graphing lines, and Plinko probability, to projectile motion, wave on a string, Fourier (making waves), and blackbody spectrum. PhET's Java and Flash simulations "animate what is invisible to the eye through the use of graphics and intuitive controls such as click-and-drag manipulation, sliders and radio buttons," and further encourage quantitative experimentation with rulers, stop-watches, voltmeters, thermometers, and other measurement instruments.
