Since then, I have implemented the use of many simulations in my Physics, Conceptual Physics, and Physical Science classes. Here are six different ways that I use simulations in my classroom:
1. Low Error Quantitative Analysis
Coming from a science background, I know that the more data points my students can collect, the better their analysis will be. I also know that the average 15-year-old can have short attention spans.
Sometimes using a simulation, like this
