Demonstration Movies & Simulations

Demonstration Movies & Simulations

Next Gen PET lessons and activities include movies shown to students during class. These are all short videos of demonstrations, experiments, or simulations that students are not able to carry out in class themselves. Since the Studio-Style Class version of the curriculum contains far more opportunities for hands-on experiments for students, it has far fewer demonstration movies than the Lecture-Style Class version. Nearly every lesson has at least one movie, and most have several. In addition, in many lessons on-line simulations are used or referenced.

The demonstration movies are available online to students and instructors. Links for each module are listed below. Each activity in the module is listed on that page and has a link to a separate page with all the movies for that activity embedded in the page, provided the activity has at least one movie. All movies are shown here, including those you may not show in class. There are separate links to any simulators used or referenced in the activity. The student portal for the demonstration movies and extensions (which is the link you should give to your students) is also listed below.
