Non-Profit Launches Interactive Simulations for K-12 Physics

3/10/2015 9:20:00 PM

The CK-12 Foundation today announced the launch of a new simulations module that uses interactivity to increase student engagement for the CK-12 STEM platform. 

Examples of CK-12 sims include “stadium wave,” a simulation of fans in a stadium to learn about wave speed and wave interference, and “prom night”, a simulation of a student seeing themselves dressed up for prom in front a full length mirror to learn about plane mirrors and the law of reflection.

Challenge questions are built into each of the CK-12 sims to test student understanding and reinforce learning concepts. 

The new CK-12 physics simulations are now available for free on the CK-12 website.
