PhET Interactive Simulations (sims) are now being widely used in teaching physics and chemistry. Sims can be used in many different educational settings, including lecture, individual or small group inquiry activities, homework, and lab. Here we will highlight a few ways to use them in teaching, based on our research and experiences using them in high school and college classes. On our website we have a more complete guide to using PhET sims in the classroom: phet.colorado.edu/teacher_ideas/classroom-use.php.
