Mayers, Michael Frederick
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discussed the use of computer simulations in the high school physics class and their effectiveness at helping to educate students. The results of this study indicate that computer simulations are very effective in some cases and extremely limited in many others. This seems to indicate that simulations should be used in conjunction with physical experiments to show students information that would not be physically visible.
