Abstract

Previous researchers have demonstrated significant improvement in students’ conceptual understanding of basic physics using interactive engagement methods of instruction. In the present study, efforts have been made to convert traditional classroom instructions into active learning experiences using computer simulation package in the classroom at undergraduate physics. We have used computer simulations to teach concepts of physics in the classroom. Diagnostic tests of the materials have been conducted to obtain data concerning students’ understanding of Oscillatory motion. The overall results indicate that students seem to have acquired a good general understanding of these concepts using such simulations. Hence, the use of computer simulations in classroom is practical, effective and amenable to widespread implementation.
