We will use them for phetlabs, scientific research, and class discussions. We do many projects in physics that help students learn the fundamentals of physic concepts before actually doing any math. It helps students make connections to why and not just how to get the right answer. Chemistry we will use them for labs that are either to expensive for the school or me to afford, or too dangerous. Chemistry has to do with matter on an atomic level. Its hard for students to visualize these concepts since what we learn, they will never actually see. Computer simulations or examples will help students understand on a higher level.
