How Can Physlets be Used?

At Davidson college we have effectively used Physlets for

  • Just-In-Time-Teaching (JiTT) 

  • Peer Instruction

  • Ranking Task Exercises
  • Homework Assignments (individual or group)

  • Exam Questions

  • Pre-Lab Questions

In theory, Physlets should both promote conceptual understanding, improved problem solving and improved assessment of student understanding.


... so how effective are they?
