HyperPhysics Concepts About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network. The bottom bar of each card contains links to major concept maps for divisions of physics, plus a "go back" feature to allow you to retrace the path of an exploration. Part of the intent for this exploration environment is to provide many opportunities for numerical exploration in the form of active formuli and standard problems implemented in Javascript. New content for HyperPhysics will be posted as it is developed. A resource that was initiated as a resource for local high school physics teachers whom I had taught has expanded into an intensively used website worldwide. HyperPhysics

The Virtual Lab Series BioInteractive’s virtual labs have won several awards, including top honors in the Pirelli INTERNETional Award competition, which recognizes the best multimedia products designed to use the Internet to educate about science and technology. Designed in close consultation with educators and scientists, these virtual labs are fully interactive biomedical laboratory simulations and provide students with skills and techniques used in scientific research. BioInteractive’s series of virtual labs allows students to examine heart patients, analyze DNA sequences, probe the nervous system of a leech, use human antibodies to diagnose disease, and measure physical traits of stickleback fish and anole lizards to examine key concepts in evolution. Each lab provides an interactive environment in which students perform experiments and collect their data, and answer questions to assess their understanding. The labs can be accessed by clicking the icons on the right-hand side of the page.

Calculators for Kids! Figuring out fun things like a how old your cat is in human years or how many calories you just burned is possible using the World Wide Web. Calculators are a very important part of life today and the web offers many free activities and games using calculators. Some websites provide you with a free, online calculator while other sites require you to use your own calculator. Either way, calculators are fun. What is a calculator? A Decimal to Binary Conversion Calculator is one of the more confusing types of calculators. Many health-related calculators can be found online. Calculators are even available to determine radio activity and atmospheric pressure. The links that are provided with this article are all kid-friendly websites that will help you to have fun with calculators of all kinds. There are math games, puzzles and worksheets that all involve the use of a calculator. Small children can be introduced to calculators by using calculator toys. Dr. Math Worksheets Go!

Interactive Excel Spreadsheets Developer's Guide to Excelets: Dynamic and Interactive Visualization with "Javaless" Applets or Interactive Excel Spreadsheets Excelets are interactive Excel spreadsheets or simulations of mathematical models. Some of the new interactive spreadsheets are done in Google Sheets (very Excel-like), which has great data pooling capabilities, see Data Pool in the Cloud for more information and activities or read Oh Sheets! Here are some examples of Excelets in chemistry and mathematics (For best results - right click and then select Save Target As... to download, then open directly in Excel) : For more Excelets in general chemistry, see the Chemical Excelets page and for materials science, see the MatSci Excelets page. How do I get started developing Excelets? The basics of developing interactive computational Excel spreadsheets are described in An Interactive Higher-Order Thinking Tool, which includes an Excel tutorial to get you started. Scott A.
