Abstract [en]

The Algodoo 2D simulation environment is built upon advanced real-time physicssimulation technology. (Demonstration video is provided on Youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa9xn-xYQQk)  It has a graphical user interface whichmakes it possible for anybody to create and explore scenes that are physicallyinteractive. In Algodoo it is possible to create and edit scenes using simple drawingtools, save and load scenes, start and stop simulation, interact with simulation byclick, drag, tilt and shake. Color traces, force and velocity vectors can be addedfor enhanced visualization. The built-in physics simulation engines treat rigidbodies, fluids, chains, gears, gravity, contacts, friction, restitution, springs,hinges, lock, motors and also laser rays and optics. Algodoo is based on highlycompetitive technologies for interactive multiphysics simulation, includingvariational mechanical integrators and high performance numerical methods. Algodoo isparticularly intended to be used in order to encourage and make use of the students’own creativity in order to construct knowledge and giving the student a sense ofownership of their own learning. The sense of having control of the learningsituation is considered being one of the most important factors that generatemotivational behaviour. Algodoo offers new strategies for working with computers inteaching and learning physics. This study demonstrates the use of Algodoo withteacher students in physics and also with 8-9 year old girls in a science class.
