Gizmos are interactive math and science simulations for grades 3-12. Over 400 Gizmos aligned to the latest standards help educators bring powerful new learning experiences to the classroom.
Explore Learning Gizmos are online simulations that power inquiry and understanding. It is the world’s largest library of Math’s and
Science Simulation for Grades 3-12 and has won major EdTech Awards.
Over 400 + Gizmos aligned to the latest standards help
educators bring powerful new learning experiences to the classroom.
Gizmos uses an inquiry-based approach to learning that has been validated by extensive research as a highly effective way to build
conceptual understanding. The guides that accompany every Gizmo are designed to support and stimulate mindful interaction.
A typical guide starts with students engaging in a set of exercises where they perform specific actions and record the results. Then,
they are prompted to make predictions about new situations, after which they verify their answers using the Gizmo.
Gizmos support the development of critical STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) competencies, including the ability to:
• Ask questions and define problems
• Develop and use models
• Construct explanations and design solutions
• Analyze and interpret data
• Engage in collaboration and discussion
• Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information
• Use mathematics and computational thinking
Interactive controls, like sliders and movableobjects, allow you to set up and run simulations. Hit play to see the results or
reset to try something different. You’re in control.
Visualizations, screenshots, and graphing tools help you easily capture and compare results from experiments.
Assessment questions, inquirybased lesson plans and customizable activities help create more moments to explore, discover, and apply new concepts.
