About CoLoS


Subject areas



Physlets, Physics Applets, are small flexible Java applets designed for science education.  You do not need to become a Java expert in order to use Physlets.  The links on the right contain tutorials,download instructions, and example problems to help you use Physlets in your teaching.


The OSP Collection provides curriculum resources that engage students in physics, computation, and computer modeling. Computational physics and computer modeling provide students with new ways to understand, describe, explain, and predict physical phenomena.


Java-XYZ Java-XYZ  is a tool to set up and visualize  physics simulations in three dimensions. The user can place particles inside a cube and can give them mass and charge. The forces between the particles can be specified as either elastic or electrical, their strength can be varied after the specification of the initial state. Future states of the system are calculated according to the laws of physics and are displayed graphically. .



The Virtual Chemistry web site at Oxford University contains a variety of virtual experiments, video clips and on-line courses.
