Inject Joy into Remote Math Experiences Using Interactive Simulations

Watch "Inject Joy into Remote Math Experiences Using Interactive Simulations", a recorded "Steal This" presentation from PhET Interactive Simulations.

PhET's interactive simulations are free, open educational resources that are proven to improve conceptual understanding and overall enjoyment in the math classroom. Using a research-based approach to design, simulations afford students with authentic environments to experiment, tinker, problem-solve, and think like mathematicians. Simulations start in a state that begs to be explored, and since there is no one way to get started, all students can confidently and accurately make connections between different mathematical representations

Presenters: Amanda McGarry ( and Kathy Perkins (, PhET Interactive Simulations


Key themes: Remote learning, math, engaging lessons, OER (open educational resources)

This presentation may be especially interesting and valuable for teachers and anyone interested in partnering with PhET.

This video is part of our 2020 series of "Steal This" Sessions, in which partners share approaches and lessons learned with the broader 100Kin10 network to adapt and use to address the Grand Challenges in their own organizations and communities. Typically, "Steal This" Sessions take place at 100Kin10's Annual Partner Summit. Because we convened virtually for our 2020 Summit, partners are sharing their "Steal This" sessions as remotely self-recorded videos this year!
