How I Use It
Very easy and simple to use. requires computers sometimes. After I go over the subject with the class, I would invite them to go to the website and pull up the corresponding example and play around with it and I would ask them what their expectations would be if they arrange things in a certain way, then explain why or why not their prediction was correct. very good idea for small groups.
My Take
Amazing website. great tool to contrast the prediction and the result and explain things. it gives me a chance to explain to students why things work the way they do.
