How I Use It
Gizmos is great for lab science lab work. Each topic offers students a chance to "play" and figure out how things work. For math (used fractions topic) the simulations provided a great visual and a wealth of different examples that allowed students to interact and learn.
Gizmos offers online simulations for grades 3-12 for math and science. This is a good self learning tool that is content focused and one that allows for exploration by the student. Students engage in a simulation by figuring out what works and what does not that helps with the learning process. Each simulation provides an in depth understanding of each topic with great visuals that helps with the learning process. Gizmos offers good assessment material and resources for followup and reinforcement.
