PhET provides fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena for free. We believe that our research-based approach- incorporating findings from prior research and our own testing- enables students to make connections between real-life phenomena and the underlying science, deepening their understanding and appreciation of the physical world. To help students visually comprehend concepts, PhET simulations animate what is invisible to the eye through the use of graphics and intuitive controls such as click-and-drag manipulation, sliders and radio buttons. In order to further encourage quantitative exploration, the simulations also offer measurement instruments including rulers, stop-watches, voltmeters and thermometers. As the user manipulates these interactive tools, responses are immediately animated thus effectively illustrating cause-and-effect relationships as well as multiple linked representations (motion of the objects, graphs, number readouts, etc.). To ensure educational effectiveness and usability, all of the simulations are extensively tested and evaluated. These tests include student interviews in addition to actual utilization of the simulations in a variety of settings, including lectures, group work, homework and lab work. Our rating system indicates what level of testing has been completed on each simulation. All PhET simulations are freely available from the PhET website and are easy to use and incorporate into the classroom. They are written in Java and Flash, and can be run using a standard web browser as long as Flash and Java are installed.

The Story Behind Virtual Nerd In early 2008 an expert tutor and a designer began exploring the use of interconnected instructional videos to help confused math students. Acquired by Pearson in mid 2013, Virtual Nerd's technology and expansive library of instructional content is now available to millions of teachers and students around the world. About Pearson Pearson is the world's leading education company. From pre-school to high school, early learning to professional certification, Pearson's curriculum materials, multimedia learning tools and testing programmes help to educate millions of people worldwide - more than any other private enterprise. Description of Content (collection of resources): Virtual Nerd was originally developed as a supplemental learning resource for teachers and students, with a focus on middle school and high school mathematics. Our extensive library of instructional videos is available to you at no charge thanks to the support of Pearson Education. Key points which define Virtual Nerd's instructional platform and content library: -Learning is not a linear process, so we must support non-linear exploration. -Students are often unable to identify the source of their confusion, so we must help them find what they need without forcing them to know what it is ahead of time. -A solid foundation is critical for progression to more advanced topics, and when students find themselves struggling, it's often due to weakness in underlying concepts, so we must provide immediate and direct access to pre-requisite topics. -Quality matters in every aspect of every experience, so we must not cut corners. -When students are confused, they need to be able to focus on resolving their confusion, so we must not distract them with extraneous stimuli or with too much esthetic variation.
