About This Site
The animations shown here are not meant to be stand-alone devices, but rather to be supportive material for the classroom. I made them as streamlined and simple as possible so that they can be used at different levels and in different ways. Flexibility has been my goal.
In my own experience I have had students go to web sites to use a virtual lab or demonstration and get so lost in the verbiage that the experience did more harm than good. Therefore, no explanations come with these animations; the idea being that the teacher will provide his own explanation for his own students. The reason for this is to keep the usefulness for a wide variety of education levels. If you, as an educator, need more information on any of the animations before you use it in class, please contact me and I will be most happy to provide what you need.
I have also created other education sites. I invite you to visit those, described below. Any comments or suggestions you might have I will be most grateful to receive.
