Online mathematics and science simulations can help bridge the knowing-doing gap that occurs when districts implement the common core and NGSS. These simulations are based on research-proven instructional strategies that help students of all levels develop conceptual understanding in mathematics and science. In classrooms that resemble mathematics and science laboratories, students manipulate key variables, generate and test hypothesis, and engage in extensive “what-if” experimentation. As a result, they become able to think and reason at the top tears of Blooms Taxonomy. Even students who struggle with abstract concepts are able to “see” a concrete representation and make the transition from concrete to abstract thinking and reasoning successfully. Teachers can supplement and enhance instruction with powerful interactive visualizations of concepts.
