Algodoo, a great physics education program! « Scientix blog

It´s created by a Swede named Emil Ernerfeldt. With Algodoo you can let your creativity flow! When I first saw Algodoo a couple of years ago it looked promising and useful but I didn´t really understand how to get started in the first place. I put Algodoo on a wish list of what I would like to learn and be able to use in the classroom. Today I have used it with my students to explore contents like friction, density, gears and optics. Algodoo is a very creative program and the best way to explore it is to do the first 2 beginners tutorials and then just play around and build things with all the tools available. I will show you in a video how you can get started with Algodoo with the beginner’s tutorials.

In the videos I use Algodoo on a computer but you can also use it on an iPad. Beginners tutorial: If you would like some inspiration of how to use Algodoo I suggest that you search Youtube for Algodoo videos. An On-Line Biology Book. Lawrence Hall of Science - 24/7 Science.

By Laura Turner The following web2.0 sites would be useful for science educators at the high school and middle school level.

Web 2.0 Science Tools

Some would also be appropriate for higher elementary grade levels. There are many new ‘tools’ or websites that take advantage of the higher speed and bandwidth of today’s Internet. Web 1.0 tools/websites were text based and web2.0 tools/websites are designed for full-motion video, 3D animations and are generally interactive in some manner. Web 2.0 can also be described as the second round of new technology development and adoption.

An Animated Look At How A Speaker Makes Sound

In fact, I’d guess that the device on which you are reading this article has a speaker on it somewhere. Do you know how a speaker works? I’ll admit, I had no idea before I found this awesome animated infographic. Sure, I knew that there was a cone and a bunch of other components that allows them to push the sound towards my ears, but other than that, it was complicated nonsense.
