 This java applet is a simulation that demonstrates scalar waves (such as sound waves) in three dimensions. It shows point sources, line sources, and plane waves, and also demonstrates interference between sources. View Metadata SIMBAD is an online database of published information for astronomical objects, including coordinates, magnitude, references, and spectra. View Metadata The blackbody calculator allows for visualization of the spectrum produced by objects of a given temperature. Users can see both a line graph of the spectrum and the spectrum as it would appear using a spectral grating, as well as the actual hot object. View Metadata This is an interactive java applet which allows you to model galaxy collisions on your own computer. With this applet you can study how galaxies collide and merge gravitationally and how the effects of the collision depend on the properties of the galaxies. You can also recreate collisions between real interacting galaxies observed in the sky. View Metadata The Shodor Foundation is a non-profit research and education organization dedicated to the advancement of science and math education, specifically through the use of modeling and simulation technologies. View Metadata The Spotted Fish model attempts to track the trait change [spot size] of a population of spotted fish in a pond with ample food supply with a constant number of predators. The predators in the pond are attracted to the fishes spots, and the chance of a fish being spotted and eaten by a predator is proportional to it`s spot size squared. View Metadata The Space Ship Pilot model is a model of motion under Newton's laws with and without resistive forces. The first environment puts the user in control of docking a space shuttle, and the second puts the user in control of docking a boat. View Metadata The Space Ship Pilot lesson is a study of Newton's Laws of motion. Students use a model of a space shuttle and a ferry boat to study differences in an oject's motion with and without resistive forces. View Metadata The Colors of Stars Lesson studies how we study temperature of objects through the radiation they emit. This lesson has the student compare three stars in Orion (one red, one whitish-blue, one deep blue) and try to determine which is hottest and which is coolest. View Metadata This tutorial is meant to get you up and running quickly in Java. It is written for the beginning programmer, and will cover both basic programming elements and the syntax for using those elements in Java. This is not intended to be a tutorial in object oriented programming, and object oriented programming and classes are not covered in this tutorial. View Metadata
