9 Apps and Tools for Teaching Physics

9 Apps and Tools for Teaching Physics | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
Physics is one of the most difficult subjects for students to learn and an incredibly difficult one for teachers to find quality apps for use in the classroom.
John Pearce's insight:

I've 'played' with most of these apps, (have to try The Fluid Ether and Simple Rockets), and they are all pretty useful.

Monster Physics is fun for any age

Monster Physics is fun for any age | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"This universal iOS app comes from the "Gee, I wish I had this when I was a kid" category. Monster Physics teaches science, but in a fun way. You create your avatar then assemble a contraption from pieces available in the app. Wheels, cannons and all sorts of parts. You can weld things together and make moving joints. There are 68 items that can be used to make your gadget.

Then your creation gets rendered, and the true laws of physics will apply. Will the object roll smoothly, fly like an airplane or make a space flight? Several of my designs failed, and that is where the learning takes place. After awhile I was literally flying high."

Vernier Video Physics app for iPad.

Vernier Video Physics app for iPad. | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"Video Physics brings complex video analysis to iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and into the hands of the students. The app allows students to take a video of any object in motion and then by marking it.

Physics will display the path of the ball and provide graphs of Y vs X as well as the X and Y position and velocity as a function of time.
This app is perfect for reluctant students that are not engaged in physics and allows them to use technology and see real life situations being transformed into quite complex graphical physics."

Creatorverse | A fun sandbox game with physics for the iPad, Android and Kindle | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

John Pearce's insight:

Though the basic app is free, to get the most out of Creatorverse you will just have to purchase the in app packs from $0.99 to $4.99. Still the open ended creative nature of this app and the capability to share designs in a global gallery make this a must have.

Educational Origami - iPad and games for learning

A neat post from Andrew Churches that looks at the proposition that;

"We have a wide selection of games on the iPad for the “kids” enjoyment and a couple leap to mine as useful tools that could be applied to learning. Why would I want to use games for learning, well they are engaging, self motivating, rewarding and have instant feedback. So here are a couple that I think have potential."
