Abstract: Interactive computer models and simulations can extend traditional learning in high school biology classes (Scheintaub, 2004). Results of this study show that computer models can enhance high school physics learning, too. They do so by extending experiences beyond the limits imposed by text and lab. Computer models complement data gathering and analysis software to bring inquiry to the classroom. The author proposes that validation is critical to a model's effectiveness as a learning tool.
