6. Synopsis of Application (Maximum 100 words)
(Briefly describe how application can be used with accompanying pedagogy to impact learning & teaching)

This project seeks to further students’ inquiry learning through the appropriate use of computer models with multiple representations thereby improving students’ understanding of abstract concepts in Physics.
This project’s key pedagogical method is the guided inquiry approach through customized computer models, worksheets and skillful teacher facilitation, to enable students to conduct scientific investigation-inquiry on the computer models and propose/deduce physics concepts in agreement with the evidence/data collected in the computer models and real world.
