Modeling And Simulation Tools for Education ReformMASTER Tools, developed by The Shodor Education Foundation, Inc. are the result of on-going collaborations with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), George Mason University, and other education organizations. They are designed to be interactive tools and simulation environments that enable and encourage exploration and discovery through observation, conjecture, and modeling activities.
Our growing portfolio of MASTER tools will soon be fully integrated with new collaboration tools and online research facilities to create an authentic scientific experience. All of our simulations and supporting curriculum materials are designed in accordance with the new National Science Education Standards and the National Math Education Standards.
Instructional materials are currently available for GalaxSee, SimSurface, and the Fractal Microscope. We also have a beginning collection of models and materials in medicine and biosciences, and environmental science.Other materials will be made accessible as they are developed.
If you come across a model which does not function properly, please email us and let us know which models you are having trouble running.
