Designing Open Source Computer Models for Physics by Inquiry using Easy Java Simulation

  title={Designing Open Source Computer Models for Physics by Inquiry using Easy Java Simulation},
  author={L. K. Wee and S. Y. Lye},
Abstract: The Open Source Physics community (http://www.compadre.org/osp/) has created hundreds of physics computer models (Wolfgang Christian, Esquembre, & Barbato, 2011; F. K. Hwang & Esquembre, 2003) which are mathematical computation representations of real-life Physics phenomenon.
