Gizmo of the Week: Proving Triangles Congruent! Establishing triangle congruence comes up again and again in geometric proofs. The Proving Triangles Congruent Gizmo allows students to explore the conditions that prove and do not prove triangle congruence. In the Gizmo, students specify conditions that are congruent in two triangles such as S, SA, SAS, etc. They can then manipulate the vertices of each triangle to see if they can create non-congruent triangles with the specified conditions. By allowing students to manipulate the triangles in this way, the Gizmo provides a way to simulate these conditions in a way that is not possible with pencil and paper. The related Congruence in Right Triangles Gizmo allows students to explore the conditions that prove congruence for two right triangles. http://j.mp/2vAJsna

Using online simulations like Gizmos to make science accessible for all students
The DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) Center lists ExploreLearning Gizmos as a resource that can help students with disabilities learn science. "Sometimes it is difficult for students with disabilities to participate in experiments and other science lab activities....

Gizmo of the Week: Mouse Genetics (One Trait)! Gregor Mendel is famous for his studies of heredity in pea plants, but he actually began his experiments with mice. After breeding mice in his rooms at the monastery, Mendel had to switch to plants because the bishop disapproved of a study having to do with animal sex. Students can recreate what Mendel’s mice experiments might have looked like with the Mouse Genetics (One Trait) Gizmo. In this Gizmo, students begin with two homozygous mice, one with alleles for black fur and another with alleles for white fur. After breading these mice together, the resulting F1 generation will be uniformly heterozygous. Additional breeding pairs formed from this generation bear offspring with genes that follow Mendelian distributions. Punnett squares are introduced as a tool to explain results from the Gizmo in the Student Exploration Guide. http://j.mp/2vtC0cB
