Embedding GeoGebra Apps into SLS

Teachers in Singapore have been provided with the Student Learning Space (SLS) - an online platform meant for students' self-directed learning using MOE's curriculum-aligned resources as well as for teachers to create engaging technology-assisted learning experiences for their charges. One of the features that many science and math teachers find useful is the ability to create

Geogebra App on Maximum Power Theorem

 GeoGebra link: https://www.geogebra.org/m/hscshcj8 This simulation demonstrates the power dissipated in a variable resistor given that the battery has an internal resistance (made variable in this app as well). Since the power dissipated by the resistor is given by and the current is given by , This power will be a maximum if the expression for

PV Diagram for an Ideal Gas

 GeoGebra link: https://www.geogebra.org/m/xyqhfvyw Applying the 1st Law of Thermodynamics to 4 simple changes on an ideal gas, students can check their understanding using this Geogebra app. When is work done positive? Which processes bring about an increase in internal energy or temperature? Which processes require heat input?

Wavefront

In order to help students visualise a wavefront, a 3-D image is usually used to show the imaginary line joining particles in phase. I created the Geogebra apps below to allow students to change the wavefront and observe it move with time at a constant wave speed. There represent simplified versions of waves on a
