Interactive Physics is an award-winning educational software that makes it easy to observe, discover, and explore the physical world through simulation. The software allows you to model, simulate, and explore a wide variety of physical phenomena, and create nearly any experiment imaginable.

Collected here are lesson plans utilizing Interactive Physics which were created by students in the Computational Math Science and Technology (CMST) Institute.
