TYPOLOGY OF OUR EDUCATIONAL MODELS

The activities we present in this section illustrate various types of interactive models classified according to the different ways they can be used in teaching.

All models in this section are presented in mkz and Java applet formats; see How to Start Models. You can also just read the descriptions of the types and the corresponding models and view the models' screenshots.
