More Java Applets

Posted on: January 17, 2011


I don’t remember seeing these before.  I just got an email that the link to the Java Applet for acceleration had failed.  It didn’t take me long to find the gentleman’s page and I realized that he has an extensive list of these physics applets.  Here is the main page in English:

There are some really useful tools here for demonstrating mechanics to your students.  Best of all, he has a download button, you can just put them all on your computer and not worry about his link changing.  I haven’t been able to make the downloaded applets work, if someone can post some help, it would be appreciated.  I tried just clicking on them, they open up Firefox, but they all seem to fail.

If you have access to computers in your classroom, you can design lab experiments where the students input conditions into these applets and read the results from the screen.  Not as much fun as hands-on, but a lot better than lecture.  If you do create an applet lab, please forward it to me, I’d love to attach it to this post.

I keep a list of quite a few simulations/animations that I have found both from Physics and other disciplines. Enjoy and thanks for posting.

What’s New in 2013/2014?

Every year brings a change, this one is no exception.

I will be picking up the sophomore honors Algebra II class to keep them separate from the juniors. This should help accelerate them and put them on a stronger track towards Calculus. Looks like there will be only one section each of Physics and Calculus, but still two of Robotics & Engineering.

Hot topics this year are going to be the Common-Core Standards, Standards-Based Grading (SBG), improving AP Calculus scores, and somehow adding Python, maybe as a club.

Polls in the sidebar

Just a quick poll to help me understand who is stopping by my blog.

Yeah sure, lots from America, but look who else is here…

If you are badly in need of more email or for some reason jonesing for a physics fix, enter your email address so I can bother you with my newest rant on science.
