Mobile Apps in the Classroom
Mobile apps that could be used effectively in education
In a physics class, this app would be useful for students to use for a quick reference.
Physics Notes 2
I would use this app in a physics class as an additional reference that students can access to learn about physics concepts.
Particle Physics Simulator
In a physics classroom, I could give the students scenarios that they must set up, and then have them describe how it evolves. For example, an exercise I may give is to set up a 2-particle system in which one particle is twice as massive as another, and have the student describe what happens to each particle after they collide in the simulation.
Physics Constant Table
In a physics classroom, I would allow students to use this app as a quick reference for finding constants.
Projectile Motion Simulation
In a physics class, I may give students an activity where they must make a projectile land at a certain area by changing one variable. For example, I may have them set the height and initial velocity of a projectile, and would ask them to determine what initial angle the projectile must be fired at for it to land a certain distance from it's starting point.
