Experiment With Accurate Electricity Simulations

Easy-to-use experiments - supported by 40 reproducible lab worksheets - help students build a practical knowledge of electricity and its physical principles. Hands-on virtual experiments provide a safe means for students to apply electrical concepts to real-world devices while practicing important scientific process skills.

Special features include reference materials from the World Book Encyclopedia and Virtual Manipulatives that help students make the connection between concrete and abstract concepts.

Features :

Accurate, Easy-to-Use Simulations "Hands-on" experiments developed by science and education experts allow students to investigate electricity-from conductors, insulators, resistors, capacitors, and thermal switches to circuits in doorbells.

Scientific Skills Development Students practice valuable thinking skills-observation, prediction, deductive reasoning, conceptual modeling, theory building, and hypothesis testing-as they solve electricity challenges.

Virtual Manipulatives Using Virtual Manipulatives, students can control, modify, and experiment with electrical systems in a safe and accurate manner to visualize concrete and abstract concepts.

Safe, Easy, Cost-Effective Learning about electricity can be fraught with hazardous situations and broken parts. Innovative software simulations eliminate risk of fire and electrocution. And since each experiment is virtual, there are no replacement costs for parts!

Multimedia Reference Materials Quick-reference pullouts, an interactive Sci-Clopedia, and over 50 World BookTM Encyclopedia articles-with animated illustrations and suggestions for further experiments-provide students with ample material for exploration.
