Boost your Physics Curriculum with powerful motion simulation technology
The foundations of scientific discovery are imagination and inquisitive ?what if? curiosity. Interactive Physics makes your students active learners and empowers them to:

  • Explore their physical world through fast-paced exciting simulation
  • Visualize the abstract scientific concepts taught in the classroom
  • Test hypotheses and investigate ?what if? scenarios
  • Learn school-to-career job skills with real-world motion tools

Adopted by more than 12,000 schools worldwide, try Interactive Physics and see why MacUser magazine named it ?Best Educational Product? several years running.

Easy and fun to use! Watch Physics in action!
Create new experiments or interact with pre-designed Physics exercises to:

  • Measure velocity, acceleration, force, momentum, energy, etc., in metric or English units
  • Create ropes, springs, dampers, pulleys, slot joints, linear actuators, and rotational motors
  • Hear and measure sound volumes, sound frequencies, and Doppler effects
  • Vary air resistance, gravity, or material properties
  • Create visually appealing presentations by attaching graphics to objects
  • View results as numbers, graphs, and animated vectors

Easy Curriculum integration
Interactive Physics allows students to master concepts in a safe environment, without costly lab supplies and time-consuming lab setup. Your physics lectures and lab activities will immediately benefit from Interactive Physics!

  • Select from a wide range of ready-torun exercises built for your curriculum
  • Rapidly customize existing models to meet your specific needs
  • Create and share models with teachers and students
  • Compare simulation data with theoretical results
  • Demonstrate hard-to-explain concepts like Coriolis acceleration
  • Show properties of objects that you cannot see in a lab, for example, vectors or the path of a body

Complete Curriculum support

  • Offers both high school and college level ancillary support, with supplementary exercises, and activities for easy lesson planning and grading
  • Widely adopted by major textbooks
  • Complements textbook problems
  • Excellent in-class demonstrations
