Recent Work on Ripple Tank
I really enjoy interactive math and science education. Recently, I enjoyed an opportunity to work with ExploreLearning on some science Gizmos. My actual science background is marginal at best. Because of my math/engineering experience, I can handle trajectories and Netwonian mechanics. I have virtually no experience with electro-magnetics or wave mechanics, so I was pleased to work with one of the science Ph.D’s at EL on a ripple tank Gizmo. His math model was quite robust, handling barriers and submerged rocks with variable depth.
If you are an educator, check out ExploreLearning Gizmos; they are great interactive tools for math and science education.
