List of Roman deities A vast number of ancient Roman deities are known by name. The most familiar today are those the Romans identified with Greek counterparts (see interpretatio graeca), integrating Greek myths, iconography, and sometimes religious practices into Roman culture, including Latin literature, Roman art, and religious life as it was experienced throughout the Empire. Many of the Romans' own gods remain obscure, known only by name and function, through inscriptions and texts that are often fragmentary—particularly those who belong to the archaic religion of the Romans dating back to the era of kings, the so-called "religion of Numa," perpetuated or revived over the centuries. Some archaic deities have Italic or Etruscan counterparts, as identified both by ancient sources and by modern scholars. Throughout the Empire, the deities of peoples in the provinces were given new theological interpretations in light of functions or attributes they shared with Roman deities.

Easy Java Simulations Wiki About Easy Java/Javascript Simulations Easy Java/Javascript Simulations, also known as EjsS (and, formerly, EJS or Ejs), is a free authoring tool written in Java that helps non-programmers create interactive simulations in Java or Javascript, mainly for teaching or learning purposes. EjsS has been created by Francisco Esquembre and is part of the Open Source Physics project. A brief historical and naming remark: Before release 5.0, EjsS could only create Java simulations. Hence, its former name was “Easy Java Simulations” and its acronym just “EJS”. Ohio's State Tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies Why do students take state tests?

About us – Play Brighter PlayBrighter was created by teachers. We don't need to be told that kids hate feeling patronized, or that marking is a terrible curse, or what it feels like to be clicking away at a broken menu five minutes before a lesson’s about to start! The site evolved from games we made to teach our own classes, and we've never stopped asking our former students what they think. Whether you’re setting differentiated challenges for every student or just need to make straightforward revision more interesting, we want to make it easy for you, because we’ve been there. PlayBrighter is the site we wished was out there – that’s the reason it exists in the first place, and we want it to be as good as it can possibly be. If you teach a subject you feel is under-supported, or there's something else that is making the site less useful for you, let us know, and we'll do everything we can to improve that area.
