PhETs – Interactive Simulations for Science and Math
This course comprises 27 audio-video spoken tutorials, using which you can self-learn PhETs simulations with ease.
Introduction to PhETs
The Physics Education Technology (PhET) project is an ongoing effort to provide an extensive suite of simulations for teaching and learning subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Earth science. PhET provides fun, free, interactive, research-based science and mathematics simulations.
These simulations help students to comprehend concepts through use of graphics and interactive animations. Teachers can use PhET simulations to create worksheets for re-enforcement of the concepts.
PhET simulations are written in Java, Flash or HTML5. This helps to run these simulations online or to downloaded to your local computer.
To encourage quantitative exploration these simulations have measurement instruments including rulers, stop watches, voltmeters, and thermometers
PhET simulations and resources are freely available at the PhET website (https://phet.colorado.edu/) from University of Colorado at Boulder.
The Spoken Tutorial effort for PhET has being contributed by Dr. Snehalatha Kaliappan, Madhuri Ganapathi, Dr. Vidya Iyer, Meenal Ghoderao and Himanshi Karwanje from IIT Bombay.
