ExploreLearning offers a catalog of modular, interactive simulations in math and science for teachers and students. They call these simulations Gizmos and they are meant to be fun, easy to use, and flexible enough to support different teaching styles and contexts. By clicking on the "Browse Gizmos" button at the top of the home page, users can choose gizmos by grade level and subject. Math topics include: algebra, geometry, data analysis and probability, developmental math, and precalculus. Science topics include: earth and space science, life science, biology, chemistry, and physics. Keep in mind that these gizmos are only available for 5 minutes each without a paid subscription, but AMSER user say this is ample time for most Gizmos to be used productively either in class or by students.
